Crop Tops + High Waist Skirts + My Best Friend (Appreciation Post #2)

I hope all of you ladies out there have a beyond AMAZING best friend like I do, because I literally could NOT live without her!! AND, I don't think anyone should have to live without having a soul sister in their life either. That is why I feel like it is so, so important to write about, and share my feelings about, why having a best friend is so NECESSARY for us women. I think it is a healthy practice in life to mindfully and purposely notice and show gratitude for the blessings in our lives, and if you get nothing else from this post, I hope this makes you pause and show gratitude for the wonderful ladies that you all have in your own life as well- OR, if you are still searching for that one bestie who you can connect with, maybe your take away from today's post will be to have a better understanding of what a healthy friendship looks like.

I was explaining how one of the kiddos at school NEVER sees their mom, and how the situation just stresses me out and breaks my heart. AND, as I was sitting there reflecting on this child's reality, I again had the overwhelming feeling to just squeeze my mom and simply say THANK YOU (this feeling comes over me often in the presence of my mother)!!!! Thank you for giving me the best life you could have ever given a child. Thank you for ALWAYS loving me and being there for me. Thank you for sacrificing and providing for me every DAMN day. I looked at my mom, and said I literally have ZERO negative memories from my childhood- how many people can honestly say that??? I was, and still am, so beyond blessed to have been born into this family, with these parents of mine, just being showered with love by them forever and for always.

I have said this before, but I will continue to say it a million times more- MOTHERS, you are magical creatures!! Forget wanting a princess or a unicorn or a mermaid to come to your birthday party as …
