mothers gifts

It is totally okay if you give your abusive mother something for mothers day

It is totally okay if you dont give your abusive mother something for mothers day

Its okay to give your abusive mother something in order to protect yourself or stay on her “good side”, or even if its out of guilt or generosity

Its also okay to not get them anything, theyre abusive and you are under no obligation to give your abuser a present if you dont feel its right. It doesnt make you selfish or an asshole. And its okay if you simply forgot.

Mothers day is for good moms, no choice is the wrong choice.


“When I was 6, my family had almost no money. My parents had both lost their jobs, and they had separated from one another. My mom was not yet getting any government assistance and we barely had cash for staple groceries. At that point, we were poor enough that my brother and I were probably not going to get much in the way of Christmas presents. And then, a mother of a boy in my first grade class somehow noticed our need and gave my mother $100 to buy gifts for us. She wasn’t a mom who had a lot of money herself, but it was a very generous gift and made a huge impact on us. Not only did we get some material delights that Christmas, but I’m still talking about this gesture more than three decades later. I’m still moved by the kindness of a woman whose name I can’t remember. And more than that, when I was working on founding Random Acts and thinking about what I wanted its mission to be, I couldn’t stop thinking about this small act and how it had stayed with me. I couldn’t shake the feeling that small acts of kindness can have a huge and lasting impact. So here I find myself: A well-to-do grownup with two little kids, having to be gently reminded to stop and notice those struggling around me.” -Misha Collins


more little mother’s day greenhouse things:

  • someone asked me the price on a annual flat four pack of snapdragons today and I said “$2.09″ and they said “TWO HUNDRED AND NINE DOLLARS???”…. yeah $209 dollars for four snap dragons, carol
  • at one point a customer stopped me and said “you have a flower in your hair” and I was so delirious with heat that I asked him to get it out for me and he did
  • a woman told me to my face that “your coneflower looks like crap” like it was my personal coneflower and I was responsible for it looking like crap
  • people were driving up to the entrances of the greenhouses, parking, putting stuff in their car and driving to the next greenhouse….. possibly they paid for it idk
  • waited literally twenty minutes for the parking lot to be clear enough for me to drive the golf cart and trailer full of plants across it…. and still almost got backed into
  • my phone’s health/pedometer app constantly going nuts because it’s registering all of my fast walking everywhere as a work out so my phone says I worked out for 209 minutes today…. 22k steps boys… 10+ miles

Reminder that not everyone has good parents, or uncomplicated feelings/relationships with their family, and that its 100% okay to not want to celebrate/do anything for holidays such as mothers day and fathers day. 

Reminder that its not okay to make people feel guilty for not wanting to do anything for fathers day or mothers day.

This program commemorated the coronation of Elizabeth Windsor, as Queen Elizabeth II of England, on June 2, 1953. At the same ceremony, she assumed the title of ‘Sovereign’ of most Commonwealth nations. To this day, the Queen holds sixteen regnal titles and dozens of honorifics.

The program features photos of the Royal Family, poems, songs, an overview of coronation procedures, and a history of monarchal and imperial coronations in Britain. It comes to us as part of the Barbara Denison collection. Ms. Denison was present at the coronation and was a lifelong collector of Royal Family memorabilia.

sansaregina’s 14 days of christmas

@cosmonauthill: “She pictured the two of them sitting together in a garden with puppies in their laps, or listening to a singer strum upon a lute while they floated down the Mander on a pleasure barge. If I give him sons, he may come to love me. She would name them Eddard and Brandon and Rickon, and raise them all to be as valiant as Ser Loras. And to hate Lannisters, too. In Sansa’s dreams, her children looked just like the brothers she had lost. Sometimes there was even a girl who looked like Arya.”

Chris Cornell performing at The Palais Theatre in Melbourne, Australia on October 19, 2011.

“After a handful of Audioslave, Soundgarden and Temple Of The Dog songs, Cornell started bantering with the crowd. A woman in the audience asked what the red telephone was for, referring to the telephone perched upon the stool next to him for the entire gig. “Oh this?”, he nonchalantly said. “This is Jeff Buckley’s phone. I’m not kidding.” Cornell raised the phone and showed the audience the faded writing where Buckley had scrawled his name.” Cornell went on to tell the fans that he used to have a phone just like it which he smashed in a drunken rage. When his friend, Jeff Buckley, passed away unexpectedly in 1997, Buckley’s mother gifted the phone to Cornell. When he was preparing for his first acoustic gig, he was scrambling to grab cords, microphones and equipment and accidentally brought the phone with him to the gig. Ever since, it’s been a tradition that the phone sits next to Cornell during his acoustic performances. He then performed a stirring rendition of Satisfied Mind, the last track off the post-humous Buckley album Sketches For My Sweetheart The Drunk. Cornell was involved in the production of this record.”
