Even though I don’t fully agree with this religious holiday called Thanksgiving, I do have things that I am thankful for….
I am thankful for parents, who let me live how I wanted, no matter how big of a headache I gave them.
I am thankful for a partner, who appreciates me and everything that is me.
I am thankful for my local friends, who appreciate the value of “just hanging out.”
I am thankful for my kindred, no matter how much the distance between all of us, we are still close.
I am thankful for the safety of my Candiman, who puts his self in harm’s way on a daily basis.
I am thankful for the knowledge, that the Marine is happy, alive, and doing what he loves.
I am thankful for my new family, who has much to teach, much to share, and gives me the chance to share in that.
I am thankful for my net family, who show me that I am not alone in everything I feel.
I am thankful for my muse, who shows me the passion in everything I see and experience and inspires the words.
