I had a wonderful Thanksgiving meal with my GF yesterday. It was just the 2 of us as my Fam was out of town and her FAM live in ON. It was nice though. She had to do 99% of getting it ready as I was working all day. I was soooo hungry by the time I finished work as I could smell the turkey cooking all afternoon.
So, yesterday being Thanksgiving and all, I was really thinking about being thankful. What that means and how important it is. For me, I am thankful I have such a wonderful partner in life. So many people I know spend a lot of time fighting and being unhappy with their partners. I'm so thankful we take the time to try to be the most supportive that we can be to each other. No one is perfect. It's not always unicorns and flowers but I love my partner and she loves me and that's grand sure.
I'm thankful that both our families are supportive of us. Being LGBT sometimes means having to chose between living your life truthfully or having a relationship with your family.Thankfully, both our families are just fine with it all :)
I'm thankful of living in a country where I don't have to worry about being murdered or jailed just bc of who I love.
I'm thankful for having some really good people in my life, friends who don't care how crazy I can be ;) Friends who I can debate with and friends who always have an extra stitchmarker when needed.
I'm thankful for living in a country with good healthcare. I had some health issues this summer and had weekly doctor's appointments and several x-rays. Can't imagine what kind of state I would be in if we didn;t have free healthcare. I'm REALLy thankful that my injury to my hip/leg is finally healing. I felt so hopeless all summer and I finally feel there is a light @ the end of the tunnel!!!
What are you thankful for this year?
