In honor of Mother’s Day, I would like to share some of the many
lessons I have learned from my wonderful mother. Although my mother is
a remarkable and accomplished woman, I had no idea of this as a child.

Who Cares if Ashlee Simpson Was Caught Lip-Syncing?
In my opinion, the three most important words in the English language are not I love you. While those are relationship-changing words, they are not as significant as please and thank you. Maybe because I grew up in Mississippi, I expect people to say please and thank you. I think that if you bump into someone, you ... continue reading
