Greetings, UND.

Today I’m going to share with you a little bit about my relationship with my mother.

I realized something today as I was walking to class. You see, I had just found out the grade I got on a test, and I was quite pleased. Naturally, being a member of the female species, I felt the need to tell someone. The first person that came to mind was my mom.

This may not seem like a huge deal to any of you, but for me it was kind of an eye opener. See, in high school, my mom and I were never that close. It sounds awful but it’s the honest truth. We had our moments, but we quite often fought and argued about anything and everything. It was my rebellious “Miss Independent” stage. But after coming to college, I have begun to realize how important she is to me, and how close we’ve become.

She’s the person I call for almost everything. I call her walking back from class when I’m by myself, I call her when I am upset or when I need to vent, and I call her when I miss her. This might be completely normal for you, and that’s fantastic. I’m happy that you have a solid relationship with your mom. But my life hasn’t always been like that. We used to fight and bicker about so much, but now we laugh and chat about so much.

I’m so glad that I’m at a place in my life where my mom is so important to me. Yes, I’m almost 20 and my mommy is a big part of my life. I’ll tell everyone because I’m not ashamed. I think it’s good and healthy to have a solid relationship with your parents. I don’t support the 40-year-olds camping out in their parent’s basements, but you get my drift.

Last year, I bought tickets to George Strait’s farewell tour that came here to the Alerus. George has always been someone my parents have wanted to see in concert, and so have I. It was his last tour, so I jumped at the opportunity for them to come up and see a concert with me. It was one of the best nights of my life, and I’m so thankful that I have such amazing parents who love and support me.

This is a picture of us at the concert. Sorry for the awful quality, I didn’t have a smartphone at the time. :/
