Grateful for sisters because…they show you what’s cool when you are little and don’t know any better!
I am grateful to have my health, a job that provides a comfortable living and a little extra to share with others, and the love of wonderful people.
I am forever grateful to have wonderful sisters. They’re like no other friends. Talking to my sister is like looking at myself in a mirror—we share mannerisms, we can finish each other’s sentences, we laugh at the same things. My sister Lulu has never said an unkind word to me in over 65 years.
I am thankful for my family, who have taught me how to love and be loved.
On gratitude for sisters: Whole conversation can be had with just a couple glances.
I’m grateful for BART trains and airplanes.

I am thankful to my sister, Paula Feinberg, for her sense of the aesthetic, love of art, original taste in music, her love of the spa weekend, thankful she will tell me that she hates when I tag her in posts, that she has always told me like it is, that she continued to see in me what I could not. I know when we are together that we complete each other. Paula Feinberg, you complete me.
I am thankful to have friends that are like my family (which is 3000 miles away) and who include me in their harvest celebration each year.

I’m so grateful for my little sister. Strong, poised, patient. Now I’m the one looking up to her. Happy Birthday, Jackie!
Every week we post a photo submitted by one of our readers along with all the happy and thankful comments gathered throughout the week.
To contribute, email your gratitude (a sentence or two would be great) or your favorite photo to Janine at email@example.com.
You can also contribute gratitudes by commenting at the bottom of this post. Please include: your name if you’d like us to use it and any other info you’d like us to list, e.g., if the “gratitude” is from one of your children, it would be great to know his or her age.
