Moms are superheroes in disguise and they hardly ever get the proper amount of recognition for all that they do. So, mom, I am here to say thank you for all that you do every day for our family, you are truly an incredible and remarkable woman.

Somehow you wake up every morning before we are awake so you can make sure we have everything we need for the day and to give us a hug and a kiss and tell us that you love us. I mean I really am old enough now to where you don't need to wake up before me every morning, but I'm not going to lie, I really love getting a hug from you before I start my day. And I know for a fact that when we were younger, getting us dressed, fed and out the door was a heroic act in itself.

You do so much for our family and you never complain, because you're inherently selfless, but that doesn't mean you shouldn't be appreciated and recognized for all that you do. From the minute you wake up to the minute you go to sleep, pretty much everything you do during the day is for us. Whether it's getting us dress, changing a dirty diaper, making our food, helping us with homework or driving us all over God's green earth; somehow you get it all done with a smile on your face. I don't know how you have the patience but bless you.

You know the saying "moms know best"? Well as I've gotten older, I know that statement is true. A mother's intuition is incredible, you can literally read our minds without us having to say anything. And you have the maternal instinct that you can feel something is about to happen to us even if we are 100 miles away. It's kinda creepy but awesome at the same time. You also give the best advice and always offer a listening ear whenever we may need it, which is one of the most comforting things in the world.

You're also like a ninja multitasker and can get so much done at once like it's no big deal. Hopefully one day I'll acquire that skill because right now I still can't even pat my head and rub my tummy at the same time.

Mom, perhaps the most wonderful thing about you is your beautiful heart. You don't get told enough how beautiful you are inside & out. You love so intently and care so deeply for our family, and that love radiates within our home to make it the most comforting and safe place in the world. You sacrifice a lot for our family and I wouldn't have had the amazing life I've had if it weren't for your constant support, guidance, and encouragement if it hadn't been for you. You are the type of woman who would take the shirt off your back for a complete stranger, which is a woman rare and hard to find. You are so brave to have taken on the role of being a mother and I am so grateful that you are mine.

Thank you for being a woman to look up to and being the woman I aspire to become. Thank you for sacrificing so much for us and always putting us first, you didn't need to do that. Thank you for always being there for a hug or an "I love you". Thank you for being the most phenomenal mom in the world, there is no one else quite as special as you.

I love you mom.

18 Things That Happen When You Get A Good Roommate

Not every roommate story is a bad one.

Whenever you hear about roommate stories, they're almost never good, and they usually scare you into never wanting a roommate. "Did you hear her roommate steals her clothes?" "Her roommate doesn't shower!" "Wow, her roommate doesn't talk at all, and doesn't do laundry." From what I hear, there are more bad stories than good. That is why I consider myself lucky, because my roommate is nothing like one of those bad stories. When life hands you a good roommate after talking to about 40 girls through Facebook, a few things happen.

1. You always have someone to talk to.

2. You know each other's schedules, and whenever you both have a break is an exciting time.

3. You'll never have to dance alone.


4. You always have someone to do something with, even if it's just walking down the hall.

5. You both look out for each other, because this is your first time without your parents.

6. You always have a shoulder to lean on when things get tough.

7. Borrowing each other's things is a daily thing.

8. You TRY to help with each other's homework and assignments.

9. They're encouraging when it comes to boys. (Unless they're a f*ckboy.)

10. They're your biggest support system and your personal cheerleader.

11. They never forget to wish you luck on a big exam.

12. They accept how gross you are in the morning and not so pleasant sometimes.

13. You both know each other's favorite and least favorite things.

14. Leaving each other notes saying goodbye before class if you don't see them is normal.

15. Saying goodbye for breaks is upsetting.

16. Not seeing them all day is upsetting.

17. You have more pictures together than any of your other friends.

18. You found a best friend for life.

My Mother Is NOT My Best Friend, Because She Is So Much More Than That

I can't thank my mother enough for being the superwoman that she is.

I always find it interesting when people say that their mom is their best friend.

I know what they mean and what they are trying to say, but I personally have never considered my mother simply as my best friend. And if we're being honest, I am not even sure if my mother would truly appreciate being called my best friend.

The bond between a mother and daughter is not something that can be easily described or labeled. A mother's job is hard and I cannot even begin to tell you all the things that my mother has done for me. My mother plays many important roles in my life.

She is my friend.

She is my protector.

She is my supporter.

She is my mentor.

She is my parental figure.

She is the one that gave me life.

She is my person.

She is the first one to yell at me when I do something wrong.

She is the person who will always tell me the truth when I don't want to hear it.

She is my role model.

She is the person who is there when I need her.

She is the person who hasn't left my side since the day I was born.

She is the person who understands and knows me more than anybody.

She is the person who has loved me before I was even born and raised me to be the person that I am.

Without my mother, I don't where I would be.

My mom and I don't always see eye to eye. Sometimes we aggravate each other. And sometimes we don't always like or want to do the same things. But at the end of the day, she is the only person who will sit on the phone with me for hours and just listen me talk about nothing or say every random thought that I have in my head aloud. She provides a sort of unconditional love that cannot be compared to anything in the world. Our bond is unlike any other.

So no, my mom is not my best friend. My mom is my mom. Being a mom is a complex job and shouldn't be shortchanged my being called a best friend.

So thanks mom for being my mom and taking on all these roles in my life. You are one of kind and I am who I am because of all the things you have done for me.
