This thread is for those of us who want to post about the things we’re grateful for in our lives. If you feel like saying “nothing” or “my life sucks” please post it elsewhere.
Note this thread isn’t necessarily religious. You don’t have to believe in a Higher Power to be grateful.
What do I have to be grateful for?
*My Life. It isn’t perfect, but dammit, I EXIST, I’ve known Love and Joy and/or had the chance to. And in recent years I’ve come to realize what a rare, fragile thing Life is. Or, as Nulani might put it, “Death is the price we pay for Life.” And very much worth it.
*My Health. Despite the fact that I’ve developed Epilepsy (Yes, it’s true; my apologies for not having told you people before, but I had a hard time dealing with it, at first) I’ve confirmed that it is NOT due to a tumor as I feared. And, my medication seems to have it under control. It could’ve been MUCH worse, folks. Besides, other than that, I’m amazingly healthy; always been.)
*My Family. Like all of us, I’ve had misunderstandings with all of them; but I seem to have fixed all the broken links in recent years. In fact, the whole Epilepsy thing showed me how much they cared about me. Another positive side, I guess.
*My Friends. Again, this year I got to see how much they care about me- nothing proves it more than when they trust THEIR CHILDREN into your care. Also, I’ve grown closer to Valkyrie over ICQ, which surprises me because I’ve NEVER liked real-time chat, and if not for Valk, I wouldn’t have even tried it. Thanks, V.
*RPGC. NO, THIS ISN’T A PUNCHLINE. I mean it! RPGC is both a wonderful source for info, and a great place to post my stuff. More importantly, I feel SAFE here, and I LIKE most of the people here. I only wish I’d had a support group like this when I was growing up.
Thank you all.
