Here at Sisterhood, we have a lot to be thankful for. We’re thankful for the West Side Community House, for everyone who supports the Sisterhood program and for being able to come together every week to laugh and uplift each other.
We asked each of the girls to tell us what they were thankful for and here are their responses:
I’m thankful for being able to live another day in this environment. I’m glad I have two living, loving parents who cherish me. I’m thankful for friends that look out for me and know ways to make me smile when I have a frown. I’m thankful for a program that allows me to express myself freely. I’m thankful for the opportunities I am given.
Well, I am thankful to have an amazing family. I am thankful to be part of my family because they treat me with a lot of love and care. Also, I give them love and care back. I’m also thankful for being in Sisterhood. Sisterhood is like my family.
