The Twenty-Five Things I Want to Thank My Parents For

My parents have always been there for me, and with graduation just around the corner, I’ve noticed it more. Graduation is not only a big day for me but also my parents, because without them I would have never been able to endure the stress of college. They are incredible people, and I want to thank them for everything, but honestly, I am too in debt. But to start, here are the twenty-five things I want to thank my parents for:

Thank you for always answering the phone.
