    Hay lovelies!

    My roulette was to make a thread! I wanted to make a thread where we talked about what we were grateful for every day.

    Today I'm grateful for a beautiful poncho made by @Nevermind . It's the asexual colors and it's the warmest and softest thing ever. It also makes me feel hella cute.

    I am grateful for them.

    What's a thing you're grateful about today?

    You are too kind. Seriously, I'm glad you love the poncho! I need to find a way to make my living just crocheting for people. Other people have done it. It's possible, somehow...

    I'm grateful for this community, my partner, my cat, and peppermint mochas. Or really anything peppermint/chocolate related.

    Today I am grateful for good friends who always have your back even when you feel like you're going bonkers.

    I'm grateful to have friends and family be there during times when I'm really down. I'm also grateful to have two adorable corgis that even though can be obnoxious, aren't as bad as some dogs I've seen.

    I'm grateful for kindred spirits and friends that love me. At least a little bit.

    I’m grateful for my dog. He’s dumb as heck and makes me laugh constantly with antics. I swear I can hear the hum of activity happening in that brain of his. He’s the goodest boi and I’m very lucky to have such a bright and wonderful personality in my best friend.

    Oh. Oh, my heart. Oh that is such a good dog. Give him a big hug from me if that's not too weird.

    Today I'm grateful for that dog.

    Okay, but really, today I'm grateful for my progress as a person. I went to the store, and I'm sick as well as just generally annoyed because I don't like dealing with the public. Instead of getting annoyed outwardly, I forced myself to smile at the people frustrating me and accepted the fact that they aren't TRYING to get in the way.

    I'm big. Safeway is small. We're all making due.

    @Nyctibius

    Hey you. You freaking rock. And all those people in Safeway?
    To hell with them.

    Muff cabbage.

    Also, feel better. Drink soup and wear those really old and ugly pajamas with the hole in them that needed to be thrown away two years ago but they’re soooooo comfortable that we all have in our closet.

    And if you do, I’ll give the doggo the biggest hug and kiss especially from you. I might even throw in an ear scratch. :)

    OMFG LOOK AT THE FAAACE AHHHH!!! Your dog is beautiful and if you ever wanna trade for a day, I've got two very energetic corgis lol.

    I'm grateful I managed to get two jobs right away after I was laid off from my other job. Today is Day 1 of working both jobs and it is showing me that I don't have the endurance I used to lol. But I'm also learning a lot of new things which is fun. And tiring. But it's an experience.

    I'm grateful for a wonderful job that keeps me busy, but allows me the freedom to watch videos, be on sites like this one, and not feel like I'm being micromanaged at all times.

    I also wanted to add that I'm so grateful for people that uplift each other and being a group of people that encourage conversation and happiness.




    PS: If I'm talking too much on this site today, please tell me to shut the hell up. I'm feeling extremely chatty today and I wanna write a novel of joy at everyone.

    I'm gonna make this a dual part, actually, simply because they both lead into eachother. I'm grateful for my wife, and I'm grateful for this sandwich. Now that may seem silly or as if I'm making a joke at first but I promise it's genuine. See, my wife is the obvious one here. She's my reason for getting out of bed in the morning and she's everything to me. She takes everything that makes me happy and multiplies it, and if there's nothing doing that job at the current moment well you bet your ass she'll find a way to fill that position. Now to the second part; my sandwich.

    Things have been odd recently, but I truly believe that above all things people want 3 things in life that if are all occupied will achieve perfection. A place of comfort where you can be yourself, a person who cares about you, and your favorite food (in my case, a sandwich.) Now with weird things happening in life it never occurred to me but... it certainly did to my wife. So once a week she's decided to make sure I get my absolute favorite sandwich from my absolute favorite sandwich shop. And boy it's a monster. Ingredients are; Turkey, Ham, Roast Beef, Bacon, Provolone, Mozzarella, Pepper Jack, Caramelized Onions, Jalapenos, Roasted Red Peppers, Pickles, Mayo, Salt pepper and crushed red pepper all on a beautiful white bread that all in all is the length of my fucking ARM. I mean they say money can't buy happiness but money buys this sandwich and I'll tell you right now I look forward to it every week and I'll be damned if you say it doesn't attribute to my happiness.

    Long story short, I kinda forgot the purpose of this thread. This sandwich is amazing and my wife going out of her way to make sure I get it every week is just one of the infinite list of reasons I love her so much. I'm grateful to be with someone who not only cares about me, but extends that into caring about my interests to the point of making a mission out of the things I love to eat. If you read it this far, bless ya. Have a good night :)

    After a week where you feel like everything you said or did was wrong. Im super grateful for amazing people who have popped into my life in the last year. Everytime I feel like I'm going off the rails, I have a couple of special people that help guide me back on track. They know who they are and I'm eternally grateful I found them

    Today.

    That's it.
    I'm grateful for today.

    BUT ALSO IT'S MY BIRTHDAY AND I'm usually a sad bean on my birthday because birthdays are... Weird... Little reminders that I set all these subconscious expectations that don't get met (how could they, I've never vocalized them and even I don't know what they are! Not really) and battle these feelings of not being enough or not deserving of happiness, on any day, never mind my birthday, but today has been so different!

    It's been so lovely to get to know so many wonderful, supportive people to glow up the darkness in my brain! I love you all.
