I completely support MY son BY MYSELF.
I have taken him to the hospital ALONE when he’s been sick.
I woke up every two hours to feed him as an infant.
I dealt with his endless crying spells also by myself.
I have cried thinking I can’t handle it anymore by myself but carry on somehow anyway.
I stayed at home alone when his father decided that partying(/anything, really) was more important than us.
I’ve made all the diapers, all the bottles, taken my son to all his doctor appointments also all on my own.
so today is my day since Mother’s day is such a painful day for me and will never be what it’s supposed to be… today is my day because I’m a superhero. go single moms who do everything on their own and never get the credit they deserve. today is my day because yeah, I’m a statistic as far as single mothers go but dammit I’m working AND going to school and bust my ass daily to make sure my son gets everything he needs and wants. I had to step up and be both roles. and I’m doing an awesome job. I’m creating the life I want us to have. and it’s going to happen. very soon. soon, everything will fall into place.
when he grows up he’ll definitely realize who was really there and took care of him. and it’s me. I’m supermom. and this is my day.
my son is my entire world. I’ve never loved another human being the way I love him, and everything I do is for him.

The Historic and Haunted Ghost Town of Bodie
The old mining town of Bodie, California is America’s best preserved ghost town. Dating back to 1859, Bodie is literally frozen in time and looked after as an historic park. The town is both authentic and mysterious, with original fixtures, furniture, and personal items in the buildings left untouched since their residents abandoned them.
Bodie abounds with legends of the paranormal, but none more famous than the haunted Cain residence. The man of the house had an affair with their maid. After being publicly disgraced, the unfortunate maid took her own life and reportedly haunts the house.
The Cain house is open to the public and has provided accommodation for park rangers. People have reported ghostly apparitions and strange music. Staying overnight in the house, park rangers and their wives have experienced paranormal events such as hearing strange noises, being paralyzed in bed, and seeing items move by themselves.
The most frightening legend of Bodie is a mysterious curse that follows many visitors after they leave the town. Allegedly, Bodie’s ghosts serve as guardians to the town’s property, casting bad luck and misfortune to souvenir hunters who take anything with them.
Each month, Bodie’s park rangers receive objects and letters from people who admit to taking items and beg the rangers to put them back. The letters tell tales of horrible incidents such as mysterious illnesses, car accidents, and even death. The rangers frequently speak of these accounts and assure the senders that the objects are always returned to their original places.

Two of my best friends won Cutest Couple of our senior class. First time in my school history a same sex couple has even been able to run for this category, not to mention winning it. So proud of them, and my school.
if you’re ever in a bad mood, just remember, somewhere in a galaxy far far away, there’s a cat bouncing on a PB&J sandwich. that should bring everything back into perspective.
