    I am grateful for EC, and in particular, all my friends on EC who make me smile when real life is looking bleak.

    I’m glad my wife got the job she applied for! It’s a great career move I believe and I think the move will be beneficial for all of us.

    I am grateful for the kind of work I do ( geriatric health care). It has been a very busy week. Long hours. Not much time off. Varying shifts.
    But now for the next two weeks I will have time off. Can enjoy the holidays. And get to relax and recharge. Very grateful.

    I am grateful for a few things.. top of mind, My life makes me laugh, it feels good to push back against the norm and not worrying about conforming. I am grateful that my wife is able to be herself and seems really happy. I am grateful that life feels positive again. :slight_smile:

    I am grateful that my new year is starting off in a positive way. Got a call from my job, and my work schedule has changed. For the better. A more consistent schedule from week to week. No varying shifts. One shift every week, the same shift every week. Some stability. Yay!

    I'm so very grateful for my mom today. She lives far away but is visiting. I've been going through a lot, and was wishing I had the kind of relationship with my mom where I could just openly vent. I felt I couldn't because she was awful when she found out I was possibly gay in high school. I'm 39 now, and finally, I think she's fully accepted that there is nothing wrong with me in that sense. We had a great heart-to-heart last night. Thank you mom!

    I think I'll be starting a new thread in the coming out forum about our journey...

    My step-dad has had a heart attack, but seems to be doing OK. I'm grateful that he is being looked after. It makes me realise how much I take life for granted.
