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.
