:D  cutiebabysheeeeep!
It's never been my style to write a Thanksgiving list. I have always been too cool or too agnostic or too whatever to feel gratitude on an appointed day. Well, coincidentally, I feel very damned appreciative today, and I think that needs to be recorded. Anyway, I do so love lists.

I'm grateful for my capacity for joy. I think anger is more common among humans, and I certainly have my share, but there are times when I feel love for the whole world, and euphoria flows through me. I am so lucky to have that.

I'm grateful for my relationships. I have so many good friends, and I have great relationships with my mom and brother. I also have a new boyfriend, and while it's just as much under the "it's complicated" relationship flag as any other I've had, it feels so simple and easy and right. Every relationship is different, but that easyness is something I've never experienced before.

I'm grateful for my living situation. I moved out from my brother's apartment into my mother's house, and with her moving out I have the place all to myself. As I was figuring out what to do with all my things, I was feeling a lot like I'd bit off more than I could chew, but it's really coming together, and it really makes me happy to have this space.

I'm grateful for Mom's boyfriend. A year ago she was in a dark and solitary place of grief. I did what I could to help but like just about everything else in the world, the only way out was through. She came through, she's moved on, she's falling in love, and I just couldn't be happier for her. My heart sits easier now that it isn't aching for her.

I'm grateful for myself. I'm lucky to be me! I love myself, I am comfortable in my skin, I am still maintaining my ability to learn (so far), I accept my flaws and work around them as best I can. I do my best to think ahead, but I know how to appreciate what I get and live in the moment. I am great. :)
