Hey Mom, Thanks For Everything

Thanks for being my best friend, my favorite person and the best Mom in the world.

Hey Mom, Thanks For Everything
Amy J Buckner

My Mom is the greatest. She is my best friend in the entire world for so many reasons. She takes care of my dogs while I’m at school. She always knows how to cheer me up. At least once a day I say something really funny that gets no reaction from the people around me and I can’t help but think that my Mom is the only person that would get it and laugh with me. It’s hard to be at school and not see my Mom every day. We’re a dynamic duo and she’s my favorite person to be around. Even when we get frustrated with each other we’re usually laughing about something a minute later. I can’t help but think about how thankful I am for my Mom and about just how wonderful of a person she really is and I felt it was only right to share how lucky I am to have her.

Hey Mom,

In case I haven’t told you lately, you’re the best. It’s not just because you come and pick me up on the weekends or because you spoil me a little. It’s because you always put me first. In a world full of people that are constantly looking out for themselves you are looking out for me. I may not say it enough, but I’m really grateful for that. You are truly the most amazing person I know and you never give yourself enough credit. You do your best to make sure that I always have what I need. I’m sure that it’s not always easy, but you always just keep on going. I was with you when you graduated college when you received your master’s degree when you bought a house and I’ve been with you while you’ve been killing it at this single Mom thing. You always seem to act like you aren’t important like you’re always messing something up. But you’re my hero. Thanks for showing me that the sky’s the limit. That even though life is kind of crazy, I can always count on you. Thank you for wanting the best for me and believing in me. Thanks for encouraging me to go for all my dreams. For never telling me that being a theater major is stupid. Thanks for listening to all my useless worrying. I could never tell you how grateful I am for you. Even though you send me too many Kimojis (you know the ones) and even though you are way too obsessed with the video of the hamster eating the carrot I wouldn’t trade you for anything. Thanks for being my best friend, my favorite person and the best Mom in the world.

It’s everyone’s favorite time of year. Christmastime is a celebration, but have we forgotten what we are supposed to be celebrating? There is a reason the holiday is called Christmas. Not presentmas. Not Santamas. Not Swiftmas. Christmas.
