Saying thank you

By Kaitlin Trujillo
On April 20, 2018


We are almost at the end of the semester, and, consequently, I am on the precipice of graduation.

I cannot believe that I am nearing the end of my four years here at ASU.

Honestly, I did not want to come to ASU and to be even more honest, I didn’t even want to attend college at all.

I only came here because my parents encouraged me to and I am oh-so-thankful that they did.
I am blessed to have wonderful parents who have always pushed me and encouraged me to be my best.

They have supported me through all the late night study sessions, breakdowns, accomplishments, failures, highs and lows. 

I could not have done it without them. 

College is hard; It is not something that you can get through haphazardly.

I am so thankful that I had two wonderful parents and a network of people to count on during my time here. 

To my mom and dad, thank you for everything.

Thank you for being my biggest encouragers, my supporters and my friends.

Thank you for talking me down when all my rationality had gone. 

Thank you for keeping me stocked with coffee; it truly helped my sanity and my soul.

Thank you for reminding me who I am and thank you for being consistent sources of truth and love. 

Mom, you make every day an adventure. I never know what’s going to happen around you, but I know it will be interesting. 

You are one of the strongest women I know. I hope to one day be a fraction of the woman that you are. 

Dad, your love of life and people inspires me every day. I wish that I had your wit, your craftsmanship and your ability to make everyone feel special.

I am so proud to have you as my father. 

I am truly blessed to have you both.
