What a great weekend with none other then my wonderful mom. I am absolutely thankful for this first Beta Mom's Weekend. Beta is my fraternity, incase you were unaware, and this weekend it was our first Mom's weekend. I can remember thinking, long ago, "would I ever have a Mom's weekend?" Needless to say, it was very exciting to finally be to that place in life. I mean I guess I could have had a mom's weekend without my fraternity planning it, but I sure am glad I got to experience this weekend of fun with my beautiful mom. My mom arrived on Friday and we got to spend the whole weekend together. It was kind of weird because normally someone else in my family will be with her, but this time it was just us, which I believe was much needed. She was here not too long ago, but I was still glad she came. I was excited for her to meet other mothers and I was excited for others to meet my mom. I mean when you have such a cool mom you can't help but want to show her off. We did all the typical things, ate all sorts of good food, did a little shopping, relaxed, went to a cocktail party, attempted to paint with several other brothers, ate great food, got all caught up, went to brunch, and just simply enjoyed being with one another.
Notice how I mentioned food twice?
Yes well I said that because we did eat lots of good food, but my mom is on a cleanse, which made it hard for her to eat at all of these places. But I want to thank her because she did the best to eat what she could at the places we went, which I really appreciate because there were certain places that I wanted take her and I appreciate that she stuck it out and didn't let it affect her weekend with me. She also brought me some surprises that I love. It was really so sweet of her... Thank you Mom for doing little things that make me so happy and make me feel so loved.
Mom's weekend is a time for us to spend time with our Mom's and it was very cool to see each person's mother because a lot of us are like are mothers and even look like our mothers. I can't really describe the feeling, but it was a great feeling to have everyone surrounded by their mothers in one place. So much love in one place. It was really so special.
I really miss my mom sometimes, even if I don't show it, but that makes the time together so special. Sometimes I do things and I think "oh gosh my mom would do this." She has done a great job supporting me in everything I do and I live in a different state. A mother who can handle that distance and still poor out that much love is a wonderful mother.
I am loving everything at TCU, but I will be ready to go home in less than two weeks! It will be so good for me to see my family and spend some time with them and then spend some more great time with my mom on a great break!
Mom, thanks for loving me and pushing me to do my best.. I know I may complain, but deep down I love and appreciate it. I had the BEST time with you this weekend and love you so so much. I have one of the best moms! Cherish the times with your moms my friend. One day you will look back and
A. Cherish those memories for a long time
B. Regret that you didn't make them
I encourage you to do whatever it takes to accomplish A and I promise the end result, you will be so thankful for!
Love you Mom!

Blessed is an understatement when it comes to my life. Each and every day I am amazed by God's steadfast love. In return, I have claimed this space to show my thanks and whatever else comes along the way.

I pray God has a grand purpose for me and I plan to get there with a little Southern and a lot of Thanks! Join me!
