Giving Thanks

Today is a special day for me. It is not only Thanksgiving but the two year anniversary of this journal. I started journaling/blogging on November 28th, 2002. You can read that entry here. I had just moved to Washington D.C. and I was feeling hella lonely. That day was horrid. I pretty much surfed the internet and stayed in my apartment. I cried most of the day but I tried to find some solace in my own words, hence the journal. So much has changed in my life since then. I have so much to be thankful for this day, and every day. I have a stable job, an apartment that is my little space, and a kitty I adore. I have found a relationship with () Jennifer that isn’t a romantic one but it is one of the easiest, closest, and deepest friendships I’ve ever had. I’ve found a home in the GLBT community here in Indianapolis. I have a well paying job and am able to support myself. My children have shown so much love to me. Actually living and passing 24/7 is becoming more and more of a reality every day. I’ve paid off my student loan and in over a year I’ve lowered my debt from 24k to 6k. And the bonds I’ve forged with others in my life I will cherish always. Once I get a car I’m gonna come see many of you lovable fuckers! 🙂 The LJ cross country tour! 😉

From the day I lost my relationship with Deborah till March 2003 I just existed. Today, I not only exist but I live. I am glad to be alive and cherish each day. Thankful indeed!

I love all of you! <3
