21 Signs Your Mom Is Actually Your Best Friend

She's the Lorelai to your Rory.

We recently asked the BuzzFeed Community to tell us the greatest thing about being best friends with your mom. Here are their heartwarming responses:

1. Your mom is, without a doubt, the Lorelai to your Rory.

2. Knowing you can call your mom any time, day or night, is the most comforting thing in the world.



3. And being able to tell her everything without fear of judgment is the biggest relief ever.



4. Seriously, you tell her secrets you can't tell anyone else, and you know she'll never say a word.



5. Most of the time, though, you don't even need words because you can communicate entirely with facial expressions.

6. Having been around the block before, she's full of great advice on everything from work to relationships to money.

And you're her cheerleader too.

8. Like most best friends, you don't see eye to eye on everything, but you always accept each other's differences.

9. And, try as you might, you never seem to be able to hold a grudge against her for more than a few minutes.
