    That I have enough to eat, a comfortable place to sleep. That I don't have to work outside the home anymore. That I can do what I want, when I want.

    I'm thankful for all my kids and grandkids and growing family. Thankful for the news of two new grandchildren next year - January and June, I think.
    And I'm thankful that it's easier to stay in.

    Grateful for my family and friends, my cat, being in an environment where i am not isolated, for all the online seminars i have listened to, the internet, recognizing toxic people in my life and getting rid of them. My favorite web novel getting an adaptation.

    I am thankful to have had a pretty good year and hope next year can somehow be better. I am thankful to my mom for putting up with me all these years and for all that she has done for me. I am also thankful that my dog and cat are still alive and well. I am glad to have my old job back and to have a nice and friendly boss this time.

    Thankful that I got my kids on the waiting list to be assessed. Thankful that my assessment is next week. Thankful that we still have a place to live. Thankful for hot, homemade apple cider. Thankful for Netflix and a warm bed. Especially thankful for my kitty, Dusty.

    And thankful to be alive, really. So many have lost their lives this year.

    Edit: Sorry the image is so huge.

    Well, there's the usual.

    • Thankful for my wife and my two adult children.
    • Thankful for 2 dogs, 2 cats, and a desert tortoise.
    • Thankful for all my online Aspie friends.
    • Thankful for a roof over my head, warmth when it is cold, and food to eat.
    • Thankful I am still mobile enough to hike into deep wilderness.
    • Thankful for many places for solo nudity, social nudity, and even public nudity - and never having met anyone who objected.
    • Thankful for a few anime and television shows I enjoy.
    • Thankful for health and family and friends being COVID free.
    • Thankful that now I am retired I can drop my mask more often.
    • Thankful my impending senility has been delayed.
    • Thankful for enough resources to make that retirement tolerable, even if it isn't luxurious.
    • Thankful for a space program that will make mankind multi-planetary someday. (That's YOU Elon Musk!)
    • Thankful for having learned:
      To see a world in a grain of sand
      And a heaven in a wild flower,
      To hold infinity in the palm of my hand
      And eternity in an hour.
