We've all got one, the woman who's known you longer than anyone else. It's almost as if the two of you were separated at birth! She's always got your back because no one messes with her babies, and her love is unconditional. Moms always have a way of being right. No matter the situation, there are a few reasons why mother knows best.

1. She's known you longer than anyone else.

She's the one who was there through the good of your first words, and graduating high school. But she was also there changing your dirty diapers, and supporting you when you ignored her advice and did exactly what she told you not to. In her eyes no one knows you better and we've all gotten the "There's nothing on you I haven't seen before" line.

2. Every piece of advice she gives you is gold.

Sure, at the time it might come off as annoying. She's just worrying too much because she's a mom right? Wrong! As you get older you'll start to realize just how much your mom taught you. Every day I have to stop and say to myself "Wow, Mom was right!"

3. They always do their best to make you happy.

Nothing can replace the priceless moments like when you have friends over and your mom tries to hang out to be "hip with the kids." As cringy as it can be, there's a certain charm about your mom trying her best to be your friend and I wouldn't have it any other way.

4. There's no beating mom's home cooked meals.

Even if your mom's not the best cook in the world. There's nothing like sitting down at the dinner table and enjoying a nice meal cooked with love. They might not be the best tacos in the world, but no one makes them like mom.

5. There are just some things that only moms can do.

When it turns out that your friends might not have been who you thought they were, or when college doesn't end up being right for you. You can always go back to her and she'll be waiting with open arms. Whether you need a friend to share secrets and have fun with, or someone who's going to police your habits so you don't get too out of hand. Moms can do both and so much more. It's not in the job description, and they're not paid for it, but they do it anyway out of love.

However, the Bible reminds us that these things that we tell ourselves are not true and it gives us the affirmations that we need. Let these verses give you the power and motivation that you're lacking.

Here's Your Reminder To Let The People You Care About KNOW That You Love Them

It's so scary to think that one moment everything is fine and then something happens so out of no where and out of your control.

Last week I stared at my phone screen, not believing what my friend had just told me. Our close friend's father had just passed. I didn't know him well, but there was still a huge knot in my stomach, obviously feeling awful for my friend. That has to be one of the most horrible things, that I could never in a million years imagine having to go through. I told my friend I was thinking of her, but honestly, I tried to push it out of my mind that entire week. It's so scary to think that one moment everything is fine and then something like this happens so out of nowhere and out of your control.

Sometimes things happen in our lives that are unexplainable. This semester has had its ups and downs for me, but it's been pretty smooth sailing overall. I usually gladly stay on campus for the weekends, surrounded by my friends and so much going on, rather than taking the hour-long train ride home. Of course, I miss my family, but I am rarely thinking about it, especially on a Friday night.

This past weekend, however, I had this overwhelming desire to be at home for the weekend, and I couldn't figure out why. Sure, I had more work to do than normal so going home would probably force me to be more productive. I had also been sick that week, so it would be easier to kick my cold in the comfort of my own home than in my dorm. And as much as I adore Brower (not really), it can never hurt to get a good home cooked meal. I kept telling myself I would be home for spring break in two weeks, so none of these reasons really added up to my wanting to be home for the weekend.

Nevertheless, after a late date night on Friday, I decided to pack up my things early Saturday morning and haul my duffel bag to the train. And by the end of my weekend at home, I realized why I needed to be there so badly. I hadn't really confronted how hearing about the loss made me feel and how it was affecting me.

Writing this sounds selfish. Why should it matter how I feel when someone I care about is over there grieving and going through such immense pain? But after a week of pushing it out of my mind, I saw these events as an eye opener for my own life. Even though I have a really close bond with my own father, we fight a lot more often than I'd like, and sometimes I need a reminder to just let things go. I don't show it enough, but I love my dad so much and need to be grateful for the important role he plays in my life.

It sounds like stating the obvious to preach the importance of cherishing every second because you don't know when will be the last, but we often forget. No one should have to suffer through loss, and it scares me the more and more I think about it. I wish there was such a thing as the perfect thing to say to help someone through such an unexplainable situation like this. I guess all you can do is be there for them, give the people you love a hug, and appreciate the little moments you're lucky enough to spend with family.
