I wasn't sure of this, but it seems that they would be some of the likeliest ones to claim they are actually "Cherokee Princesses". I had heard or read somewhere that the Cherokee tribal government felt compelled to issue a statement, since claims among certain white (or perhaps even black) females became so rife, that there never was nor is there ever any such thing as a "Cherokee Princess".

R229, I have met a lot of white, and even black women who claim that they are Cherokee or (inset other native tribe here), but then when they take a DNA test they find out that this is not true. There are apparently some bi-racial or part black people who are technically Cherokee, but the Cherokee tribe members do not recognize them as being actually Cherokee or part of the tribe since they are descendants of slaves that some Cherokee owned.

From a mug-cradler blog:

We were sitting on a gym floor watching our youngest daughters during their gymnastics class. Running around the gym, our other kids stayed happily busy. I was multi-tasking. Watching one flip with her class, keep my ears attentive to others playing basketball and diy-ing some business cards for Hope Spoken. As we sat there just catching up, my dear friend told me about how someone challenged her to drink her coffee with two hands.

Two hands.

The idea was simple – when we drink coffee (or tea or Dandy Blend or whatever you choose) with two hands we are usually moving slow and soaking it in a bit more. Usually we are really enjoying that cup of coffee, that moment. When I think about two handed coffee drinking, I think of camping trips, Craft Weekends, Saturday mornings…basically, I think of slow. Most days I pour a cup of coffee and drink it with one hand. The other hand is busy doing a host of other things. Sometimes the cup sits on the counter and is never finished.

Drink my coffee with two hands. So simple, but shockingly hard on many days.

I’ve been thinking about it constantly. I’ve been drinking my coffee with two hands this week and let me tell you – there is so much wisdom in that simple challenge. When my hands aren’t busy doing other things, my mind is more attentive to what is happening around me. Two handed coffee drinking – I think it needs to become all the rage in this house.

I hadn't thought much about this until now but I can see how it gets confusing when couchfraun also love to post — it's a given that both groups live for social-media likes — photos of themselves "curled up with a good book...YASSSSSSS, b*itchez!!" and cradling a mug while DH is at soccer practice with Jaxxyn and Madyxx. #SoBlessed!

Using the 4th of July as an example, the frauen Facebook aesthetic will involve an overload of matching Old Navy t-shirts for the whole family; a Cool Whip-frosted flag cake with strawberries and blueberries as the stars and stripes; homemade red, white and blue bows in her kids' hair; morbidy obese DH in a flag apron grilling gigantic steaks; red, white and blue rubber ducks floating in an above-ground pool; a post about sacrifice and freedom; red drinks with blue-sugared rims on the flag glasses; a close-up of someone's blistery sunburn, and a poorly done manicure that attempts to fit a whole flag on each nail.

By contrast, the Mug Cradler will only post one picture of her kids (if she has them) making heart hands with fireworks in the center and one bokeh-heavy shot of her hands holding a sprinkler. Then it's right back to photos of her successful warm-weather makeover of the hyggekrog; Blue Majik smoothie bowls atop marble backdrop paper she bought on Etsy; succulents and air plants; POV shots of her feet as seen in downward dog; she (in a white sundress, barefoot, with white flowers in her braided hair) and DH (tight linen suit, barefoot, trousers rolled up, one tiny white flower in his beard) at someone's beach wedding, posed like Dark Matter, captioned "I must admit, we clean up pretty nicely!"

To get away from all the chaos of our busy world, I took some time today and went inside a library! And I loved every minute of it. No CNN, no Faux News, no Facebook, Twitter or Instagram (just for an hour or so), and no loud voices arguing with one another, unable to see past politics and actually see into each other's humanness. It was wonderful just sitting there in the stillness, surrounded by written voices from the past urging me to read their poetry, their stories, their humanity, and to break away from only thinking about my own stories today. Thank you Walt Whitman, Emily Dickinson, Mr. Hemingway, Bill Shakespeare... I didn't look for your books, I didn't have to because just knowing they were there in the same room where I was now sitting was enough to encourage me to just appreciate the stillness, and the words and stories from another time, your time. So thank you, library, for letting me spend some time in you today. I think it may have changed my soul... just a little.

So, for now, I thank you and others who have already reached that place and are willing to expose a part of your real life to those of us who yearn to get there. Your photograph touched me in a way that I sense has hastened my discovery of what is holding me back from exposing my inner realness publicly.

It, indeed, takes a village.

Grab your mug, and commence cradling:

“’Painted Sky’ (Don't Give Up On Us) is an invitation to be courageous, real, and to end the suffering of denial. It’s time to come out from beneath our confining constructs of unnatural thinking about who we are and who belongs. We have the ability to rewrite our narrative as Americans to one that welcomes and embraces the fullness of our individual and collective humanity. The dream of equity and fairness for all is not enough as just a dream. We must welcome it and live it as we open our minds and hearts. Our greatest strength is when we reveal our ability to see ourselves reflected in one another.” -- Lizz Wright

A friend of mine gave me this, and I at first wondered if she had mistakenly put the wrong name tag on the wrapped gift. Surely she hadn't bought this for me. When I shyly asked her, she looked me in the eyes and said that she not only meant the gift for me, she didn't just buy it... she had it made for me. Every morning I am strengthened as I drink my morning cup of decaf, because I finally believe that, yes, the words printed on this mug were ordered especially for me. Someone else knew the truth about me before I did. Sometimes the truth has to come from without before you can ever believe it from within.

This 4th of July morning I was drinking my coffee, reflecting on the day ahead, and I thought about what we're all celebrating (or not celebrating, depending on your politics), and I remembered that it's also Independence Day! What an interesting holiday. I poured myself a second cup and got out my journal and wrote down what I was deciding to be independent of today. I now declare my independence from the judgement of others, from perfectionism, from comparing myself to my gorgeous neighbor (compare and despair, right?), and independence from expectations of any kind... from myself or from other people. And I declare my independence from this cocoon of indecision I've voluntarily remained wrapped inside of for far too long. Pardon my giddiness but this butterfly is now free to fly free, independent of all things that once bound me. As I watch the fireworks tonight with my husband and children, I'll smile at their excitement as they celebrate the 4th of July, but I think I'll keep to myself the holiday I'm celebrating. And I'll smile about that, too.

Yes, our children have much to teach us. My triplets, Skyler, Sailor and Mason, are empaths and I marvel at their compassion. They are very confused about the Trump presidency and I field difficult questions from one or more of them nearly every day. I tweet some of their questions and the Twitterverse sometimes helps me with answers, but most of my Twitter followers are just as lost as I am and they just sympathize (and remark at how inspired they are by my child's question). I mean, how do you explain what a pu**y is to a 4-year-old? Let alone grabbing one. And, my blessings are all girls, so here we are. (Of course my husband doesn't understand any of this. He just says that he's glad his paycheck is bigger now due to the tax cuts. I marvel at him, too, but for different reasons.)

I hereby designate this song to be the Mug-Cradler's Anthem:

"Hey lady, you, lady, cursin' at your life You're a discontented mother and a rich inventive wife I've no doubt you dream about the things you'll never do But I wish someone had a talked to me like I wanna talk to you Ooh I've been to Georgia and California, oh, anywhere I could run Took the hand of a preacher man and we made love in the sun But I ran out of places and friendly faces because I had to be free I've been to paradise, but I've never been to me

Please lady, please, lady, don't just walk away Cause I have this need to tell you why I'm all alone today I can see so much of me still living in your eyes Won't you share a part of a weary heart that has lived a million lies Oh I've been to Nice and the isle of Greece While I sipped champagne on a yacht I moved like Harlow in Monte Carlo and showed 'em what I've got I've been undressed by kings and I've seen some things That a woman ain't s'posed to see I've been to paradise, but I've never been to me

Hey, you know what paradise is? It's a lie. A fantasy we create about People and places as we'd like them to be. But you know what truth is? It's that little baby you're holding, and it's that man you fought with This morning, the same one you're going to make love with tonight. That's truth, that's love Sometimes I've been to cryin' for unborn children That might have made me complete But I, I took the sweet life and never knew I'd be bitter from the sweet I spent my life exploring the subtle whoring that cost too much to be free Hey lady, I've been to paradise, but I've never been to me

I've been to paradise, never been to me

(I've been to Georgia and California, and anywhere I could run) I've been to paradise, never been to me (I've been to Nice and the isle of Greece While I sipped champagne on a yacht) I've been to paradise, never been to me (I've been to cryin' for unborn children)"

The quintessential mug cradling personality, a Utah "mommy" visiting London (and referencing having once lived there):

"22 years ago when I was last here, so was Diana. This is by far the most heart-wrenching part of discovering my memories of this place as I wander the streets. Because I lived across the street from Kensington Palace and would routinely see and hear the red helicopter bringing her home. There is a line in that James Blake cover about Vincent Van Gogh that goes: “This world was never meant for one as beautiful as you.” That lyric could not possibly be more true than if it had been written about her. My mother is the maternal figure I have always tried to emulate, but since my time in London in 1996 I have always wanted to be the kind of mother whose children looked at her the way those boys gazed at their mum."

Same Utah mommy mug-cradler, visiting France a few days earlier:

In keeping with the full circle theme of this trip I spent my 43rd birthday in the village where Vincent Van Gogh spent the last 70 days of his life and painted over 81 canvasses. He committed suicide here at the age of 37 and is buried not far from where he rented a room for a few bucks a day. Earlier this year I wrote about James Blake’s cover of Don McLean’s tribute to Vincent with this line in it: “Now I understand / What you tried to say to me / And how you suffered for your sanity / And how you tried to set them free / They would not listen, they did not know how / Perhaps they'll listen now” .

Give it a listen and while you’re at it check on the people you love. Hi, Mom. I love you eternity. ❤️💙🎂

I'm shocked someone dredged up this old thread (which I started) and it's NOT to add something about the college cheating scandal....

This thread (thanks OP/r434) makes me nostalgic for the Bunnika threads. Such fun.

Yes indeed, we too use "cookies." Don't you just LOVE clicking on these things on every single site you visit? I know we do! You can thank the EU parliament for making everyone in the world click on these pointless things while changing absolutely nothing. If you are interested you can take a look at our privacy/terms or if you just want to see the damn site without all this bureaucratic nonsense, click ACCEPT and we'll set a dreaded cookie to make it go away. Otherwise, you'll just have to find some other site for your pointless bitchery needs.
