Mothers Day is coming up and my mom is my best friend and my biggest supportive figure in my life. She's done so much for me throughout my life, and put up with some of my stupid antics. She's Super Mom in every form.

Within in the past month, I recently ended a relatively short relationship. It wasn't healthy and I wasn't happy. When it came down to the line, I was always mad and complaining about every aspect of the "relationshit." The break-up for me was hard, and I think a lot harder for me than my now ex.

I've only come to the conclusion that I need to move on. My mom would tell me all along, and my mom is always right in the end. In the back of my head there was some false hope that I had wishing it will all work on again. Seriously, what is the use of beating a dead horse?

I'm very independent and find myself distracted often at school, so keeping in touch with my family while I'm away is never my highest priority and it's something I've constantly taken for granted. Texting and Facebook have helped my mom and me keep in touch throughout the day. Our short messages keep us connected despite our distance from each other. Without this connection with technology, I would not be able to cope with my the hard times I've gone through while I've been at school.

She left me a great message on Facebook yesterday, and it defines how great my mom is in every way. It helped me get through my day yesterday, and it's advice that I wanted to share with other readers:

Mom's have learned from their own past, and try to protect their kids from getting hurt too. You deserve to be treated a lot better and not as a second class person by anyone, especially a part time so called person who says he cares for you but only on a part time basis! What a Jerk! You put up with crap for too long. Have a great time this weekend. Get out and party!  Love you Amanda

Whether you have a close relationship with your parents or not, they've been through a lot of the similar situations as you growing up. Even at my weakest moments, I know my mom will be there in some way, shape or form to help me get through it. I am who I am today because of my mom, and I am so thankful for that.
