Thank You Mom.

54951_179324938745114_4374993_oAccording to Urban Dictionary, a mom is the woman who loves you unconditionally from birth, the one who puts her kids before herself and the one who you can always count on above everyone else. Just telling her your problems makes you feel better because mom’s always know how to make it all go away. Those moms deserve to be celebrated.

Although there are so many great moms who actually gave birth to their children, not all moms gave birth to their children. There are so many kids all around the world that were blessed to have a mom that didn’t give birth to them, but raised them and loved them like their own. Those moms deserve to be celebrated.

There are many moms around the world that are in heaven. It is hard to live without them, but their memory still lives on through their children. Those moms deserve to be celebrated.

Some moms have children who are in heaven. Loss is extremely difficult, but the mothers still honor their child’s memory in everything they do. Those moms deserve to be celebrated.

I am so thankful that I have a mom that perfectly fits the definition of a mom. My mom has loved me unconditionally from the moment I entered the world (probably even before that). She always puts me and my little sister before herself. I know that I can always count on her, and she definitely always knows how to make me feel better.

God seriously blessed me by giving me my mom. My mom has always been my No. 1 fan, pushed me to do my best, sat through every choir/dance/piano recital, gone to all of my competitions, gone to every award ceremony and everything else  in between.

I definitely could not survive without my mom. She does so much for me and I seriously can’t thank her enough for it. I love to write, but there aren’t enough words to accurately explain how much my mom means to me. I seriously could not live without her.

My mom answers all of my stupid questions. My mom supports my dreams. My mom gives me good advice. My mom is always my No. 1 cheerleader. My mom lets me “borrow” all of her clothes. My mom works hard for me. My mom sends me care packages. My mom lets me call her a billion times a day. My mom shaped me into the person I am today. My mom spoils me. My mom gave me her good looks. My mom is my role model. My mom loves me unconditionally.

My mom does all of that and more. I could go on forever about all of the things my mom does for me because she is seriously that incredible.

I might be in college and technically be an “adult,” but I still need my mom and I will always need my mom. I love her so much and I wish that I could give her the world because she definitely deserves it.

Although today, May 8, is dedicated to celebrating mothers, we should celebrate all mothers every single day. They don’t get to just pick and choose when they are our mom, they will be our mom forever. They never stop doing so much for us, so we should never stop celebrating them.

Happy Mother’s Day to all of the mom’s out there. Let us celebrate you and everything you do for us today and everyday.

Thank you mom.



Call Your Mom

I’m going to let you in on a little secret that I am sure many other college students share.

I miss my mom.

Yes, I said it. The thing that all college students feel, but won’t admit because they want to seem independent.

I love college and I love the new feeling of freedom, but I really do miss my mom. Two hours away from my dear mom is a lot farther than I thought it would be when I was anticipating my move to Norman.

My mom was out of the country for a whole week without cell phone service, and let me tell you, I was dying to talk to her.

Last night I spent an hour on the phone talking to my mom. It felt like no time at all honestly. I could have stayed on the phone with her all night. I’m sure I ramble and complain a bunch, but she is always willing to listen.

Hearing my mom’s voice and telling her all about my day is easily one of my favorite things to do while I am at college. I don’t care if that sounds lame, it literally is the thing that always makes my day a little better.

The love of a mother is really a love that nothing else can fulfill. I cherish ver y second I get with her, even if it is just a daily phone call.

So don’t hide the fact that you miss your mom. Go call her right now and just tell her about your day. Trust me, she will appreciate it more than you even know.
