thenecessiteas I was challenged tonight on #twitter to stick my tongue out against #teen #bullying! Fortunately I was never #bullied in school! However, I took it the hardest from someone close to me, someone who was supposed to #love and #protect me... A few years of what I call #torture now ending in years of #panic attacks and extreme #anxiety. We all have our stories and I won't get into mine, all I can say is #screw you to bullying and thank you to the #precious #friends that have worked with me to try and overcome what I've been through!!! #YouCantPushMeAroundAnymore#GLABBERchallenge #Challenge #NoMoreBullying #Bullying #SayNo #OverCome #Anxiety #PanicAttacks 6d

thenecessiteas Today I am SO thankful for many of you!! Friends that I call family and some of you that I don't even know personally... I'm thankful for all the love I've received the last few days, private messages and emails from many of you!!! Loosing my mom/best friend at such a young age has been extremely difficult for me... Raising 4 boys without the help of my own mom has been the hardest thing ever!! Sharing memories with my boys that I hold so close, knowing they will NEVER experience the love I have for my mother is absolutely heartbreaking!!! My husband only knew her for a short time and the only memories he will ever have is lying in bed snuggling her or feeding her.. At times I feel like my family got screwed!! Missing out, never knowing someone who was so special and important to me!! But I am thankful for best friends and in-laws whom have stepped up and fulfilled the part that any mother would have fulfilled!! Holidays are the worst when you're missing the ones you've lost!! My heart goes out to all the ones lonely and hurting this holiday season!!! And again, a special thanks to the ones who have sent smiles and love my way during this hard time!!! #IMissYouJo #OnceMyHeroNowMyAngel #IThinkAboutYouEveryDay 1mon

thenecessiteas Missing my sweet mama tonight and all the amazing things she taught me!! Going through all her stuff from when she judged beauty pageants. I'm so lucky to have all the info, notes and scores from when she judged Vanessa Williams at the Miss America Pageant!! Sadly she ended up loosing her title from a previous Penthouse photo... but look where she is now!!! Best memories I had were going to the finishing school where my mom taught and watching all the beautiful models, wishing that someday I'd be just like them... Walking around with books on my head in my moms high hills for hours learning how to balance and walk straight.. All she ever wanted was for me to make it to the Miss America Pageant!! Obviously I let her down in that department but I have a feeling she's still smiling down, proud of what I've become!!! #HolidaysAreHard #IMissYou #BestTeacherEver #OnceMyHeroNowMyAngel #MissAmerica #America #Pageants #Talent #Dance #Ballet 1mon
  •   thepottersplace You didn't let her down. Look at your family. I know she is proud of you. Wish she would have taught me a few things. I hate gills dresses but I do like things that are shiny!!!!! 1mon
  •   sarita_mojica Aww, i bet she is so proud of you! I hace come to learn that mothers want some things for their children, but mostly they want to see them happy, so if you have achieve that, then you bet she is very proud indeed! You are a beautiful woman, succesful and i may not know you, but you seem like a great human being, so i can imagine her smiling to you from above, always! @thenecessiteas 1mon
  •   mchb727 So sorry Lindsey... My thoughts are with you hugs 1mon

  •   monicaldillow How sweet!! Loved that you shared this!!! Merry Christmas! 1mon
  •   brettnsadie I'm sure she is extremely proud of you! I always looked up to you and wanted to be just as beautiful as you are! Like you I let her down on becoming Miss America although it was always a dream of mine! How fun that you got to grow up in that atmosphere! I have to say, going to Miss America is one of my best memories! Love you and Grandma Jo! 1mon
  •   lydia_thelovemeproject Girl. I know she is looking down from heaven so so proud of you! 1mon

thenecessiteas Today I met an angel... For the last few months my husband and I have been randomly buying people's lunches/dinners. Well, rewind back to over 4 years ago when I was pregnant with baby boy #4... My husband had just closed his store after 14 years and it couldn't have been worse timing!! Being self employed we have never had health insurance but it was never a big deal because we always made enough $$ to pay for it until baby 4. Bills were piling high, collectors called daily and we wondered every day how we were going to make it to the next... My OBGYN sent me a letter saying that she knew how bad we were struggling and not to worry about paying the remaining balance of our bill (which was a few thousand dollars) until we were able to get back on our feet again. This brought tears to my eyes knowing there were STILL people like this in the world!! My husband has never left outstanding debts and will do whatever needed to make things right!! A while back we called her office to arrange full payment and was told she had retired. We said we didn't care, we needed to get in touch with her so we could make things right after all this time. The office people told us there wasn't anything they could do. Well today we ran into her!! We told her we have been trying to contact her so we could pay her back for all she did and she simply said "use the money you would have paid me and buy your family Christmas". I balled as she held me in her arms!! We tried everything to get her to take our money and she wouldn't.. All the lunches and dinners we've secretly bought for people will NEVER compare to what was done for us today!!! But I believe in karma and like to think "what goes around comes around". Rather big or small, do something selfless for someone today!! You never know what they might be going through and how much it might mean to them!!!! #PayItForward #SelfLessActsOfKindness #AngelsDoExist #TrueStory #SelfLess #Love #Kind #Angels 1mon
