It’s hard for me to pick just one person because I’m truly grateful for so many people. And since I tend to be a rebel, I am going to make my own rule here.

The someone for me is a collective. Over the years, I’ve collected friendships with women in my life, who have help mold me into the woman I am today. I have shared secrets, cried, laughed, celebrated and mourned with them all.

When things are off in life, we reach out to each other. When things are great we may send an emoji or celebration text. When life allows, we show up in person, and that’s when the real fun begins.

We live far apart mostly, and while I may only see these women every year or so, we keep in touch through social media and our cell phones– thank you technology.

Maintaining distance friendships can be a challenge for some, but for me, having a few solid female relationships in my life of women I can truly depend on, makes a world of difference.

How about you? Who is someone you are grateful for?
