    I have a lot to be grateful for. Even with the internal confusion of who I am.
    Work, creature comforts, health, people I know, a partner. Not necessarily in that order (I do have priorities).
    Life has not always been easy. But I am grateful for the trial-by-fire times. And those moments that bring a smile or a laugh.
    And I am grateful for the chance to learn from those who share on these forums. Thank you.

    looking for me- Know the feeling. It's below freezing here, and the wind is making it feel even colder. But we got the fireplace (propane) place going. Not as pictureesque as a wood fireplace but still warm and comfortable. And the cat is comfortable also. It's grateful too.

    nothing wrong with gas, lot cleaner and easier than wood.

    Use to have a wood fireplace in another house. Yes, it's not as clean. Just something about the crackling that creates the ambiance.
