Your mom is and always will be your first friend. Now that you have left the nest, she still wishes you lived under the same roof as her.
Although she probably wishes you could stay young forever, she still wants to be around to watch you grow into a loving, caring, and devoted adult.
Your mom has been there for you through everything: childbirth, your first word, your first day of school, your "brace-face" stage, your first heart break, becoming a teenager and sending you away from home so you can become your own individual. And she will be there for much more like your wedding and when you have kids of your own.
So when you are wrapped up in your life, remember that there is one person who will do anything to hear every chaotic detail of your life that you are dealing with.
Here are 20 reasons to call your mom:
1. She has helped raise you and get you to where you are.
Without her, you would not be where you are today. She has done everything in her power to raise you to be the best you can be. She deserves to know something as simple as what you did today.
2. She feels alone knowing that you will not always be around anymore.
Whether you have gone through a friendship ending, a tragic moment or a heartbreak, she has been there to comfort you and let you know that you are not alone. Now it is your turn.
3. She needs a girl to gossip with.
She doesn't have a large group of friends to meet up with every day to gossip like you do. No matter the age, she will always need a girl to talk to so that should be you.
4. You are more alike than you probably think.
Most girls pick up the same qualities as their moms considering she shares your genes. You can easily relate to a lot of things, especially as you get older.
5. She is always right.
Need advice? She has probably gone through something similar to what you are so she knows exactly what to tell you.
6. She will tell you what you need (and not want) to hear.
She will not beat around the bush or tell you that she agrees with something she does not fully believe in. She will be brutally honest and everybody needs somebody like that in their life.
7. She is the reason you are alive.
She carried you around for months and went through childbirth. That should be enough.
8. She is the one person that truly knows how to comfort you.
Something about being held by your mom and hearing her comforting words is more helpful than some girl who you know does not care as much.
9. She was your first friend.
She will be your friend until the very end and she is the one person you can count on to never leave you.
10. She will make you want to get stuff done.
She will ask you questions that will make you question your priorities. Instead of watching Netflix all day, she might inspire you to clean your room and go outside to get some fresh air.
11. You don't get to go home to see her as often as she would like.
Living hours away, it is hard to make time to go home. A phone call is the best way to keep in touch when you do not see her as often as you would like to.
12. She will always be on your team.
She will side with you no matter what. Even if you are 100 percent wrong.
13. She understands.
She's been there and she remembers what she went through when she was in your shoes.
14. She won't judge you.
She may not agree with half of the things you do or say but she will never judge you.
15. She is your number one fan.
She has always been there cheering you on whether it was for the a dance recital, a spelling bee or preschool graduation. No matter how good or bad, she has and always will be cheering on the sideline for you.
16. She has never left your side.
After the endless amount of horrid and painful mistakes you have made in your life, she still continues to love you endlessly.
17. She just wants to hear your voice.
It is quiet around the house now that you're gone. She's been hearing you talk every day for 18 years and she misses that. And your dad's voice probably getting annoying sometimes.
18. She's your mom.
SHE'S YOUR MOM!
19. To tell her you love her.
20. One day, she might not be there for you to call.
You never know when your last phone conversation might be with her.
What could you possibly do or say to someone that has given you their entire life? Start by calling your mom ... and not just when you need or want something.
