Thank you. For raising me to be a good, honest and respectful person, for always being there in times of need, for giving me good advice even though I may not have always listened or liked what you said and yet still being there as a shoulder to cry on if things went wrong, for kicking me up the butt when I needed it (not literally), for loving me always - even when I was a rebellious teenager with a bad attitude. Also for the good times, the days out, the fun and laughter. For still being there for me now even though I'm 42 with children of my own. and thank you for teaching me how to be a good mother to my own children. I will always love you. YOU ARE MY BEST FRIEND!!!
I will always be there for you even when you're grown. I will stick by you even if you are rebellious and have a bad attitutude. I will give you the best advice I possibly can, even if you don't like what you hear, or if you tell me that you hate me when you don't get your own way, as I know you don't. I will raise you to be good, honest and respectful people. I will help you and support you in whatever you wish to do. We will have fun together, we will laugh together and we will enjoy each others company, most times. I will help you through school life, college, university, however far you get with your education. I will always love you. I AM YOUR BEST FRIEND!!!
So why is it that so many people on COM feel that Mums cannot be their sons/daughters best friend? What is a friend? Think about it :-)
