Thankful for Women Giveaway

We're hosting a giveaway this Thanksgiving, and we just want to know one thing: Who is a woman in your life that you are thankful for? We asked The Animator's Wife this question, and this was her answer:

"I think it would be a bit trite to say that I am thankful for my mother. That should be obvious. Of course I am thankful for her, especially now that I have a daughter of my own. I really understand the decisions she made when I was growing up now, and frankly, I might as well be her. I catch myself doing and saying the exact same things she would.

"Therefore, I would like to go with the less obvious choice and say that I am thankful for my mother-in-law. And I'm not just saying that to get brownie points with her (it's unlikely she'll even see this post). I'm thankful that she did such a good job in raising her son to be the intelligent, caring, hardworking man he is today. And I'm thankful for everything she did for me when I was young. I've known her family since I was nine years old, and she always made me feel like I was part of it even before I married into it. I think there are a lot of things that I learned from her that I just never would have been exposed to otherwise."

  1. I am thankful for quite a few amazing women in my life but two in particular come to mind when I think of writing this.

    Like most I am thankful for my mother. At one point or another I think most of us realize we are versions of our mothers and that does not have to be a bad thing! She is one of the strongest and bravest women I know. Even though our relationship was a bit rough during my teenage years she is one of my best friends and my rock.

    I am also thankful for one of my best friends and sister in law. We've known each other since we were 9 years old so she really is a sister to me. Her love and support through thick and thin over the years has meant the world to me and I can't imagine life without her.

  2. I am thankful for my Mom. My parents divorced when I was 3, and she raises my sister and brother and I by herself. She did whatever she had to do to make sure we had all we needed, sometimes working 3 jobs at a time to provide for us. She taught me to be a strong, independent and self-reliant woman. I wouldn't be half the woman I am today without her.

  3. I am also thankful for my mom. She has encouraged me to do things that I want to do and helped in other ways that I could not have gotten anywhere else.

  6. I am thankful for my mum. I have Chronic Fatigue Syndrome and not matter how ill I am she is always there. She has done the shopping, looked after my son and picked me up from the hospital. I don't know what I would do without her (crochet addictuk)

  7. I'm thankful for all of the women in my life, both past and present. My Grandmothers both had their share of impact in their unique ways. My Mother continues to be a presence, and my former Mother-in-law (Gladys, may she rest in peace), also had an impact on me. It's when you sit and think about it, reflect on instances and comments, and other moments of time, that you realize the various inputs and what they did to shape you into the woman you are today!!

  8. The woman I'm most thankful for is my mom. She was the kindest, liveliest, funniest and most beautiful person I know (though she wouldn't believe it when I said so). She was also my biggest fan and my best friend. I began to appreciate everything she and my dad had done for me when I became a parent myself. It's kind of cruel that she passed away just three months after my first daughter (and their only grandchild) was born. She has touched the lives of so many people, and I bet I'm not the only one thankful to have had her in my life. ~ Claire

  9. I am thankful for my daughter. She is a single working mother of four boys. Two of her children are still at home. I am bedridden and she is my caregiver, and she has been fighting breast cancer this last year. She is an amazing, loving caring person and I am so thankful for her.

  11. I am thankful for my beautiful daughter who is a sweet mix of me and her dad who is the love of my life (31 years now). She has taught me more than anyone ever in my lifetime. She has taught me how to love, how to life my life compassionately, and had taught me a great deal of patience. She is all grown up now and the most beautiful woman inside and out that I have ever known. She has overcome many obstacles to be successful in her life (physically and emotionally),and I could not be filled with anymore pride than I already have or I just might burst :)

  12. I am thankful for my Mom. I wish that I could be just half the person that she was. She was one of the kindest human beings that I have ever met and I consider myself blessed to have known her.
