The Greatest Book Dedications You Will Ever Read

(via notesofgratitude)

Do you know how sometimes you wonder why you are the way you are and you like the things you like?

And other times you look around at your family and you get it. Looks like all the ladies I love had a thing for dogs. Some of these photos are from the ’40s. I never stood a chance!

Coulter: Any growing interest in soccer a sign of nation's moral decay

UHHHMMM, I hesitate to post this because BLECK, but I truly can’t remember the last time a piece of writing made me this angry.

I get that this is an opinion piece. But it is a DUMB opinion.

Oh sweetie, not even. Just no.

This majestic specimen of athleticism and poise cares not for how much that vet bill was. I, however, need to cry over a plate of cookies.

“I’ve learned that you can tell a lot about a person by the way he/she handles these three things: a rainy day, lost luggage, and tangled Christmas tree lights. I’ve learned that regardless of your relationship with your parents, you’ll miss them when they’re gone from your life. I’ve learned that making a “living” is not the same thing as making a “life.” I’ve learned that life sometimes gives you a second chance. I’ve learned that you shouldn’t go through life with a catcher’s mitt on both hands; you need to be able to throw something back. I’ve learned that whenever I decide something with an open heart, I usually make the right decision. I’ve learned that even when I have pains, I don’t have to be one. I’ve learned that every day you should reach out and touch someone. People love a warm hug, or just a friendly pat on the back. I’ve learned that I still have a lot to learn. I’ve learned that people will forget what you said, people will forget what you did, but people will never forget how you made them feel.”

I cut my hair short. I like it, and I also liked the woman who did it. She would stop periodically to ask if I was okay and I think purposely kept spinning the chair so I wouldn’t see all of my hair on the floor.
