Remembering the little things that we are thankful for often keeps us going in life. Being able to recognize and appreciate things in our everyday lives can help us to understand our true identities.
We asked women what they are thankful for. What are you thankful for?
I am very thankful for the friendships in my life. I can’t imagine life without them. They help me and support me when I’m down, they are there for me to share my joy and victories, big and small. Feeling fortunate to have such friendships, and being grateful for them is part of who I am.
