My Mom, My Best Friend

It's so cliché to say "my mom is my best friend" but there really is no better way to put it. Especially as I get older, I become closer and closer to my mom and become more and more thankful for her and all that she does. Mother's Day is around the corner and even though we should appreciate our moms every day, this is the perfect excuse to spoil them all day long.

This post is dedicated to my number one supporter, best friend, role model and so much more. I love you mom!

Here are some things that I will forever be grateful for:

A constant best friend
How awesome is it that I don't even have to leave the house to hang out with my best friend? Sure I could go hang out with my friends that are my age but that's kind of lame. I always have someone right there to hangout with, go shopping with, grab lunch, and so much more.

A shoulder to cry on
For all those times that you try so hard to pretend you're okay but your mom knows you better than that. As annoying as it is when she won't stop asking "what's wrong?" a million times, it feels good to finally crack and let it all out and it's even better with your mom holding you in her arms.

Endless Laughs
She's not only there for the bad times but also the good times. Some of the best memories I have in my life are with my mom and I should (even though I definitely don't) have a six pack from how hard we laugh together.

Girl nights with lots of junk food
I guess this explains the part about now having a six pack. Nothing beats running to the store and stalking up on tons of snacks, renting movies, and kicking back on the couch for the ultimate mother/daughter girl's night.

Motivating each other
I can't stand when my mom comes in my room at 7am and jumps on my bed to wake me up begging me to go out for a run or do something to get the day started, but I secretly thank her for it once I'm up and moving and making the most out of my days.

Never Giving Up
It's never definite who will stay in your life but my momma sure won't leave me and I'm forever grateful for that. She refuses to let me give up on myself and on top of that she never gives up on me. It's awesome to always have a number one supporter.

Perfect Role Model
I now know exactly what type of mom I want to be because of her. When the day comes that I get to raise my own children, I wouldn't do it any other way than what she taught me.

Hard Worker
I am SO grateful to have a mom that works so hard every single day. It shows me that I can be an amazing mom/wife and still have a great job. It definitely isn't easy and I know that but she makes it work and I admire her for that.

Her characteristics
Everyone always tells me that I am a replica of my mom and if that's the truth, I consider myself one lucky girl. I admire my mom's strength, dignity, humor, patience, understanding, and so much more. I can only hope that as I grow older I take on more of her characteristics.

Memories that will last me a life time
I will never forget the times we've had and I will always treasure them.

"A mother is she who can take the place of all others but whose place no one else can take."

I appreciate you not only on Mother's Day but every single day of the year, momma. I love you.
