Today is Memorial Day, a somewhat somber occasion. It's a time to honor and mourn those who have died while serving in the military and protecting us citizens. These brave, courageous people sacrificed themselves in order to protect others. They fought for a cause they believed in. They're amazing and truly deserve to be honored for all they have done.
Always be true to yourself, who you are as a person. The people who really care about you will appreciate you for who you are, no matter what. So feel free to stay true to yourself and flaunt how amazing you are.
It's just a great feeling to see your children (furry or otherwise) grow up and develop, acquiring new skills along the way. And these days never last long, so we must treasure them while they do.
Don't let others dampen the shine of your soul. Let it glimmer strong and bright like the sun.
I've been so blessed to have some wonderful maternal figures in my life. They've taught me many lessons over the years, like how to be strong, and how to stick up for myself. Those same women have nurtured me with endless love and care, molding me into the person I am today.
