A Thank You Letter For The Mom Who's Her Daughter's Best Friend

Thank you for loving me when I couldn't love myself.

A Thank You Letter For The Mom Who's Her Daughter's Best Friend
Sydney Fowler

Dear Mom,

I hope somehow you figure out how to read this, so I'll make sure to send you the link just in case!

Anyways, I just wanted to say you truly are my best friend and the greatest source of love in my life. I do not even know where to begin in my thank you because I could never fully explain my gratitude in my lifetime.

You are the strongest, most selfless person I know and I am truly honored to be your daughter. And I just wanted to say thank you for always being there for me, you have truly seen me in my lowest of lows and still loved me endlessly, so thank you for that.

You have brought me to Jesus time and time again whether it's from you forcing me to go to church even when I didn't want to, or you showing me God's love through your own actions. You raising me in a home centered around God is probably one of the best gifts I could have ever asked for. You continually amaze me by your unshakeable faith and your commitment to God. You have given me an incredible example to look up to.

Thank you for never giving up on me. I remember crying in my room when I was incredibly sick and incredibly sad and you picked me up and hugged me time and time again. You loved me when I couldn't love myself. I can't imagine what I must have put you through, but you never stopped trying to help me find my joy in life again and I cannot thank you enough. Because here I am, the joyous and loving girl you raised me to be.

I also wanted to thank you for all the little things you have done for me and the things you continue to do for me. Like making me breakfast in the mornings during high school or leaving notes in my lunch box telling me that you love me and to have a good day. Thank you for sending me care packages and tagging me in funny videos on Facebook. I also love all of the emojis you put in your cute texts that you send me. I want to thank you for always wanting to dance with me and for always being up to play in the snow and build a snowman.

There is nothing like being incredibly anxious about who knows what and being able to call you and immediately be calmed by just the sound of your voice. I can tell you anything and everything and I know you won't love me any less. I can laugh with you and cry with you just like any best friend would. And there's nothing more healing and comforting than your hugs.

You need to know how beautiful you are even though sometimes I know you don't think so. And it's more than just how awesome your smile is, it's just in the way you are. I want to thank you for always reminding me that I am beautiful and that you are proud of me. Thank you for never letting me forget that I am good enough by just being a child of God.

I could go on and on about my gratitude for you but for now I'll stop. Just thank you for everything and more.

I love you to the moon and back,

Your daughter.

To Mom

There are days when you just need your mom

To Mom

There really is no way to prepare yourself for the loss of someone. Imagine that someone being the one who carried you for 9th months in their belly, taught you how to walk, fought with you about little things that only a mother and daughter relationship could understand. You can have a countless number of father figures in your life, but really as my mom always said, " you only get one mom."

The Way People In Society are Dating is Why I Don't Date

I need someone to show that they want me for me, not that they're using me to chase the idea of being in a relationship.

The Way People In Society are Dating is Why I Don't Date

You hear your phone go off. He's asking you to hang out. Then, of course, you get the advice of your friends to decipher this text. Is it just hanging out or is it more than hanging out? You've probably done this at least once in your life or at least seen a tweet where someone posted their screenshots with a potential love interest.

Winter Break As Told By 'Friends'

Is a month at home too much to handle?


If you're anything like me, winter break is a much-needed light at the end of the tunnel after a long, stressful semester. Working hard for 15 weeks can really take a toll on a person mentally, physically AND emotionally. It's a nice change of pace to be back at home with your family and friends, but after a couple weeks, it can get, well... boring.
