After eight semesters of college, countless adventures, and so many friends, ones I needed and ones that needed me, this semester, I found a friend in someone I didn't expect.
In the good times, and the hard, you were there for me. Every time my heart was breaking, you were my shoulder, my rock. When I was crying so hard I almost couldn't breath, you had the words I needed.
When I lost my best friend and I didn't like the person I had become, you were there to help me remember who i once was and who I could be, in the future, and today.
When I was nervous about applying for a job, you helped me find the words to describe who I am and who I can be.
Every paper I wrote, you helped edit. Every story I told, you were there to listen. On the days I came over after not speaking much, you listened to me blab on and on, making sure I caught up on my daily word count.
When I was sick, you cared for me. Making me the weird food I requested when it was the only thing that sounded good. You let me use your bed when it was the only thing I could sleep on and you made sure I took my medicine.
Even after all of this, you probably don't even realize how much you have impacted me. How much you have helped me, guided me, and loved me.
So mom, thank you for being the friend I needed this semester. For helping me get through everything. For always being there. I will never be able to thank you enough for all you have done for me, for how much you have loved me, even when I didn't deserve it. I don't think I could have made it through This semester without you.
You have always been there for me, and this semester you have really pulled through.
Thank you for being so amazing, mom.
