My Mom Is My Best Friend But I Definitely Don't Tell Her These 5 Things Enough

As much as we talk, there are a few things I wish I told my mom more often.

My Mom Is My Best Friend But I Definitely Don't Tell Her These 5 Things Enough
Nicolette Giambalvo

My mom is my absolute best friend. She's my go-to person for just about everything. If I'm ever feeling upset or overwhelmed, I call her. If I need to vent about a situation, I call her. For good news and bad news, she's the first person to know.

However, even as much as we talk on a day to day basis, there are a few things that I wish I told my mom more often.

1. "You were right'

The saying 'mom's always right" is something that I've learned to be true over my 21 years of life.

Especially when I was younger, I used to think I was always right about everything. "I know what I'm doing, mom" followed by an eye roll was a pretty common phrase that came out of my mouth.

Now that I'm older and have gone through countless trial and errors, I've learned that my mom was right about everything.

That group of friends that were going to get me into trouble, the boy who was going to break my heart, and that "best friend" that really didn't have my back: my mom always knew. Not only does she have such a good judge of character, but looking from the outside in, she saw things that I didn't.

Moral of the story: mom, you were right.

2. "I'm proud of you'

My mom is one of the hardest workers I know. Not only does she work hard, but she also manages to still make time to play hard. She's a successful real estate agent, a thoughtful and caring mother, and a fun time all in one!

I'm not sure how you do it mom, but I sure hope I can do it just as good one day.

3. "I'm so lucky"

Not everyone is blessed enough to have a strong mother figure, let alone one that is as awesome as my mom. I sometimes take it for granted how lucky I am to have such a strong, sweet, and considerate woman as my mom.

4. "You're my best friend"

There's no better best friend than your own mom. Whether it's friend drama, boy details, or stories I would talk about with my friends, there's really no limit to what I can talk to my mom about.

She is my mom when she needs to be, and my best friend when I want her to be.

5. "Thank you"

Last but not least- thank you, mom.

Thank you for always being right there no matter what. Thank you for not judging me when I mess up or do wrong. Thank you for your little day-brightener texts that I didn't even know I needed.

And thank you for shaping me into the woman I am today.

And even though I try to say it at least every day, I can never tell you "I love you" enough.
