7 Things I Forget To Tell My Mom
MothersDayGifts

I will be the first one to roll my eyes when I'm in the same room as my mom. That woman is crazy! She drives me up a wall, I cannot lie. Sometimes I just want to shrink her and put her in a closed mason jar for a few hours and then let her out when I'm ready. However, she is one hell of a mom. She isn't made of gold and she isn't made of Betty Crocker skills, but she is hardworking and she is understanding. My mother has never told me that she couldn't make something happen for me without trying first. My mom has my back and although we fight continuously, she is Wonder Woman and I can't ask for more. So here are 7 things I wish I told my mom more and maybe of you feel the same way, you should say them too..

1. You're An Awesome Mom

You rock! I know I don't give you much of my time, and I should, but don't take that as a punishment. And don't let my brat of a sister ever make you second guess your maternal skills because I think that I turned out pretty awesome and I think that is all because of you!

2. I miss you

I know I don't call you enough and I am really sorry. I know you are lonely. I should call you more, and I should tell you more, that I do miss you. When I am home I don't devote all of my time to you I know, but that's because I take you for granted, but I miss you and believe me when I say that.

3. You Do Enough

DON'T LISTEN TO TAYLOR. Oh my god mom you have done everything in your little power that you could for us. You were never dealt an easy hand but you turned it into the best hand you could give us. You said to me a few weeks ago, "Maybe I don't do enough." You do more than enough mom.

4. You're better than dad

Not to bash dad, but come on...he's a three and you're ten! You love more than he does, provide more than he does and you smile more than he does. Those things are appreciated a lot. Without you, I wouldn't have a parent to care for me.

5. Can I help you?

I should ask you if you need help more, better yet, I should just offer. I should make dinner and volunteer to clean the bath tub. I like to think that I do my best, and I do sometimes but I could do more. You did everything for me for 19 years, I could certainly do more.

6. Thank you

So thanks, mom! Thank you for understanding me. Thank you for caring about my problems and offering a solution. Thank you for making every Christmas and Birthday worth my while. Thank you for bending over backward for me every time I asked. Thank you for putting yourself last all of the time and me first.

7. I Love You

I Love you! I know I don't say that enough! There is no excuse for that. They are three simple words, I have to find the time to tell you them, I promise I will. I love you, mom.
