Happy Thanksgiving

I wanted to take some time to wish everyone a Happy Thanksgiving.

Urspo had written a post about how people worry that one would be alone on Thanksgiving day or not have a Thanksgiving meal. I thought about it and while it is a holiday, why we don’t worry about our loved ones or those we care about eating alone or not having a meal any other day. Anyway, the day or the sentiment truly should be about gratitude.

And there are many things that I am grateful for. One of the many is the love and support that I first received here in the blogosphere. The many readers and comments I have received along the way was better than any therapy I would have gotten. Knowing there were others out there who are normal and also lead the now humdrum life I lead help create the paths I took to come out. You guys became my family despite the fact that we have never met in person. And I would look forward to meeting any one of you.

Of course for my immediate family who have shown me what love is and also taught me how to love. While I thought they would be the most harsh about my being gay, they didn’t once flinch (well perhaps the parents shifted uncomfortably). And they have remained by my side.

There is so much to be grateful for and I could write an endless list.

    Happy Thanksgiving. I’m glad you found support insourcing own family and the blogging community.

    I have only started to grasp in the last few years what thanksgiving means to you guys in the United States. Our thanksgiving back in October is just a dinner that some families have. Your thanksgiving is a monumental country wide event that is only rivaled by Christmas in the size of scope but at the same time, is more inclusive than Christmas.

    With that in mind I wish you (and “E”) a perfect, love filled, thanksgiving!

    Plus I hope your team wins later today. 😉
