True Life: I Hate My Mother

hate my mother

My mother is vindictive, controlling and outright mean. If I could list the ways she passive aggressively told me I was fat, told me my boyfriend was too stupid, too nerdy, too poor, to high maintenance, whatever—if I could count the times she’s implied I was stupid, that my only success would come with marrying a wealthy man or that what I was doing was just not good enough—I’d have a very long list.

Let’s face it. Life doesn’t always turn out the way we planned.  Breakups, unemployment, and other sudden life changes can leave one stranded.  The feelings of uncertainty and helplessness are hard to combat when trying to get back on track.

It’s Time To Cry: Dad With Terminal Cancer Walks His Single Daughters Down The Aisle

A Dying Dad Gets His Wish

Pass the tissues, please. When Fred Evans, a father of four, found out he had cancer shortly after enduring a double lung transplant, he was given only a few months to live. He knew that if and when his two unmarried daughters chose to tie the knot, he likely wouldn’t be there to give them away at their weddings. Instead, he surprised them with a special church ceremony and walked each of them down the aisle with their immediate family gathered to watch. The girls had no idea what was going on until they arrived at the church, and the looks on their faces pretty much say it all. Fred had one more surprise up his sleeve that day — he told his wife Karla that he wanted to renew their vows in front of their closest family members. Does it get any sweeter than this? What a lovely reminder to make the most of every day. [Fotolanthropy]

Woman’s “Appendicitis” Turns Out to Be A Miracle Baby

A 37-year-old woman from New York unexpectedly became a mom a few days ago. She gave birth to a surprise baby boy — after being rushed to the hospital with horrible abdominal pain.

Teresa Brown believed she had appendicitis or gall stones, and after undergoing blood work at the hospital, she was told that she was pregnant and was actually in labor. She welcomed baby Andrew a mere 45 minutes later, who weighed in at 4 pounds, 12 ounces and is healthy, despite being born two weeks early and having no prenatal care. Read more at The Stir…

Kate Middleton is becoming the guest that just won’t leave. What started out as a quick post-baby trip to mum’s has turned into a potential six-month stay. And Carole’s like, “Dude. Leave already.” Just kidding. The Duchess could never be an intrusion to anyone, least of all her mother. But Kate really is considering staying at her parents’ Bucklebury home with baby George for a longer time than anticipated. And for a very good reason: Carole is apparently the only one who can get the little prince to sleep. Read more at The Stir…
