To My Ex-Boyfriend's Mom: Thank You

Thank you welcoming me into your family.

To My Ex-Boyfriend's Mom: Thank You
Haley Moreno

I remember when your son first wanted to introduce me to you; I was so nervous. I had met other mothers before but this was different. Your son captured my heart in such a short amount of time. He had already become such a big part of my life and I wanted so badly for you to like me. Your approval was so important for me to be able to continue the relationship we had begun.

Myworries soon fled when we finally met.

You were so sweet, and giving, and incredibly easy to talk to. You made loving your son so much better and easier knowing that he came from such an amazing family. I hope you know that being able to be a part of your family was such a blessing and I cherish all the memories I made with everyone. Although he and I are no longer together, I wanted to take the time to thank you for everything that you did for me.

You showed me love and compassion.

You showed me strength and humility, and you showed me how to be a devout woman of faith. Even when things might not have been the best for you, you always had a smile on your face, and I admired that immensely.

I know that you have had to deal with things most people couldn't dream of dealing with, but you have dealt with it gracefully and kept your faith strong. Your presence could brighten up any room. I would look forward to visits to your house for our small chats and dinners with your family.

Thank you from the bottom of my heart.

Thank you for sharing your son with me for the amount of time that you did. Thank you for always welcoming me into your home.

Thank you for allowing him to spend time with my family and I. Thank you for the holiday blessings (I looked forward to your texts every time). Thank you for the hugs, and the gifts: they meant so much to me. But most of all, thank you for opening up your family to me and allowing me to love your son unconditionally.

We are now leading separate paths.

I have accepted the fact that your son and I are no longer together, but I wrote this to show you how much I valued our relationship. You were such a blessing in my life. Even though we won't be seeing much of each other anymore, I hope that we can stay in touch. Your continuous support is something I have always appreciated.

I hope you know how much I loved your son and still do. I pray for his happiness each night. I pray that he finds someone that loves him as much as I do or more. I pray that she treats him well and that she doesn't let him go. He meant the world to me and I know he means the world to you. Thank you for being you, and sharing a piece of yourself with me.

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.
