I am grateful:

1) for my bio-family
2) for my family of choice.
3) that I have had so many interesting experiences.
4) for the indulgence of my wonderful girlfriend, R.
5) for L.
6) for free transportation options.
7) for life without cable.
8) for music and singing.
9) for community.
10) that I know myself.
11) that I'm learning to cook.
12) for a good (non-leaking!) roof over my head, working utilities and public services.
13) that my car works, and my parking karma is generally good.
14) for dental insurance.
15) that my mom got me a Magic Bullet.
16) for pain medication.
17) that I got to see J. and K. (even though I was a sad, loopy gopher).
18) that my friends came over and painted ornaments and I had a great time for most of it.
19) for sick leave and an understanding boss.
20) that I have many tools and lot of support to work through my emotions.
21) for the cessation of pain.
22) that I get support in developing my career at work.
I got into a career exploration program that started in September and meets every month until June 2010. We've done several things with the Myer's Briggs Typing, and will also be seeing panels of people in different career paths. I appreciate that I can do this for free, during work hours.

23) for new friends.
I met some new folks and we went out for gelato. They are really neat, and I hope to see them again.

24) for vacation.
Even if it is bittersweet. I would not have chosen to take this time off, but since I have it, I am glad for the longest vacation I've had in 3 or 4 years.

25) that I have talented friends who love music.
I went to see a friend sing in a choral ensemble, singing a collection of beautiful sacred music, and it was glorious. I love this kind of music, and miss singing it. I might even consider going to a church... I also went to another friend's carol singing at a pub, with an electric cello, guitar, pipes, flute, and a few other instruments. It was great fun, and I want Chuck's cookie recipe.

26) that I have become a better listener.
Listening is a skill that helps my relationships work better, and I'm glad of that.
