As Mother's Day approaches, it makes me realize how lucky I am to have such a good relationship with my mom. Now that I'm in college, I feel closer to her then ever. I'm the kind of girl who will call home when I'm bored, walking to class, waiting in the car to pick someone up or when I've had a long day. When something crazy happens, I call my mom. We usually talk for so long that we run out of things to say.
When I go home for break, I usually end up hanging out with my mom just as much as my friends, if not more. We'll go to lunch or get our nails done, but we always get coffee first! I volunteer to run boring errands with her, like going to the post office or going food shopping because then she lets me get whatever I want and we always make it fun. Since I'm the only girl with three brothers, I'm lucky not to have to share the girl time.
She's always there to give the best advice and reassure me that everything will work out in the end, which it always does. She puts up with my grumpy moods and lets me complain about whatever is bothering me, which can sometimes be a lot, I know! If I miss my dogs, she puts them on FaceTime for me. I love going to school not too far from home because it means that she can come to visit me and we can go shopping and try somewhere new to eat. I could never be too far away.
Although sometimes you deserve an award for dealing with me, I love you to the moon and back, and I'm so grateful to have you! You're my favorite person to laugh and watch TV with, even though you don't always answer my texts. I can't wait for all of our summer adventures!
I love you, mommy.
