A Thank You Letter To My Best Friend On Mother's Day

Because moms can be best friends, too

A Thank You Letter To My Best Friend On Mother's Day
Gianna Ellis

A mom is more than someone who you simply call “mom.” A mom is someone who nurtures you unlike no other and is there for you through thick and thin. As the years progress, I am reminded more and more how grateful I am to have you as my mother. You have been there since day one and you’ve done everything in your power to make me into the person that I am today. As your daughter, I am truly blessed to have you in my life and I wouldn’t be the woman I am today without you by my side.

Just like every other mother and daughter, we have had our not-so-good moments with each other. Things have not always been so perfect. However, those moments have made our relationship grow even stronger. Throughout the years, you have been there to help me through all of my milestones. Each memory just adds onto our journey together. There are so many, both good and bad, that will forever remain within my heart. As I look back onto those memories, I can laugh at all of the silly fights we had with each other. I can also smile at the moments when you gave me advice that I still use today. Then there are the moments that we continue to share today. In the end, every memory that I have with you is truly a gem, as I wouldn’t have wanted to share it with anyone else but you.

Our relationship with each other is more of a sisterhood; we know how to push each other’s buttons and when to lend our shoulder to cry on. However, I know that I can come to you with anything, no matter how bad it may be. I know that you are not there to judge me or to punish me, but you are there to mold me into an even better person. I know that in junior-high and high school, I was embarrassed to be constantly attached to your hip. Today, I have no problem with doing so because you do mean a whole to me and I am not afraid to show that. I know that things have not always been so easy. But always know that I love you, even when you are nagging me to go clean my room, because you have truly made me into a better woman.

So thank you for knowing when to be my best friend and when to be my mother. The two of you have made such an impact on my life. I cannot thank you enough for all of the things that you have sacrificed in order to help me. You are truly the greatest mom in the world and I couldn’t be more proud to call you just that. I know that you always tell me not to get you anything on mother’s day, but you more than deserve a huge thank you for all that you do for me. So today, I thank you for being both my mom and best friend. I wouldn’t want to spend this journey with anyone else.

For as long as I can remember, I have been listening to The Beatles. Every year, my mom would appropriately blast “Birthday” on anyone’s birthday. I knew all of the words to “Back In The U.S.S.R” by the time I was 5 (Even though I had no idea what or where the U.S.S.R was). I grew up with John, Paul, George, and Ringo instead Justin, JC, Joey, Chris and Lance (I had to google N*SYNC to remember their names). The highlight of my short life was Paul McCartney in concert twice. I’m not someone to “fangirl” but those days I fangirled hard. The music of The Beatles has gotten me through everything. Their songs have brought me more joy, peace, and comfort. I can listen to them in any situation and find what I need. Here are the best lyrics from The Beatles for every and any occasion.

Small towns certainly have their pros and cons. Many people who grow up in small towns find themselves counting the days until they get to escape their roots and plant new ones in bigger, "better" places. And that's fine. I'd be lying if I said I hadn't thought those same thoughts before too. We all have, but they say it's important to remember where you came from. When I think about where I come from, I can't help having an overwhelming feeling of gratitude for my roots. Being from a small town has taught me so many important lessons that I will carry with me for the rest of my life.

I can't say "thank you" enough to express how grateful I am for you coming into my life. You have made such a huge impact on my life. I would not be the person I am today without you and I know that you will keep inspiring me to become an even better version of myself.

Waitlisted for a College Class? Here's What to Do!

Dealing with the inevitable realities of college life.

Course registration at college can be a big hassle and is almost never talked about. Classes you want to take fill up before you get a chance to register. You might change your mind about a class you want to take and must struggle to find another class to fit in the same time period. You also have to make sure no classes clash by time. Like I said, it's a big hassle.

This semester, I was waitlisted for two classes. Most people in this situation, especially first years, freak out because they don't know what to do. Here is what you should do when this happens.
