Late entry, but I wanted to make sure I have something that really clicked: Today, I'm grateful for how much my communication skills improved in relationships over the years. It allows me to be a much better partner for Julie than I would have been when we initially met.

Day 4: I am grateful for LOVE.

I used to be quite a skeptic, doubting that any romantic relation can truthfully last very long because the fascination of getting to know someone and erotic longing would wear off after a while. But then, as a big surprise when and with whom I least expected it, I found love - or love found me? - with the other Ted.
I can fully agree with the beautiful things other fleeties said here about being happy that my significant other is as introvert as I am and the amazement of having found someone I never need to pause from and who feels the same about me. And - Bonus!- who loves the same things as I do, from acappella music and alternate universe theories to coffee, from Eurovision to musical movies, from spicy food and Star Trek to X-Mas-Ignorance and even to zodiac stuff.
We've been together now since 2006 through thick and thin, through good times and the darkest ones, and the love and trust is still only getting deeper. I consider myself very lucky that I met this special someone who fits so well with me and I'm grateful for every moment we get to spend together. Now I truly know that Love is Love.
With Love, hippie

Today on Christmas eve there are two things I am very grateful for:

The first is STAR TREK. When I'm depressed in winter, or during these days, I've often cheered me up by watching Star Trek. It gives me hope and makes me feel good.

The same goes for the second reason: You all here in Stonewall. As Star Trek Online is my favorite place to be in the internet, its good to know that there are always friends to share and play with, good people cheering you up, making fun, and pew pew some bad guys to save our universe. I really appreciate that a lot and I'm grateful for it. THANK YOU ALL and have a nice evening!

Day 4: Today I am grateful for books.  A wonderful way to slip away into an adventure and forget the world around you.

Day 3: I am grateful for FRIENDS.

I am a rather shy person but I have the honor of calling a handful of people close friends though ups and downs for quite long times, and even as time passes where we all are busy with our own lives it's all back there once we meet. I am also honored to call some of our SGN members my friends, friends whose friendly greetings and unconditional friendliness lift my soul up even at times when I am too depressed/scared/lazy to leave my flat or pick up a phone to connect to people out in the real world. You people have helped me through very dark days!
In the course of a life, of course, one also looses some friends or you suddenly notice they weren't actually friends to begin with - but that is a risk you have to take to also find people where you can wholeheartedly say I have been and forever shall be your friend; where you have built up the trust that friendship lasts forever and friends will be friends.
Friendly greetings, hippiepunk.

I was about to be grateful for something else, but like Kevn and T'Lara I am super grateful for the cheap, affordable, reliable public transport system we have!

I'm also grateful for the holidays. Whether your Christian or not, religious or no, celebrating or not, there is a wondeful feeling in the air in the city at the moment and I love it :=) My mental health is always better at this time of year and I am thankful for that!

So I came here to post about being grateful for something else than the public transportation system but I had to agree with T'Lara!
Here goes for today; I am very grateful for my team of Fleet Captains! Anna, Cai, and Plazma, you guys are a pleasure to be in a team with.

Today I wanna share that I'm grateful for local public transport. What a great idea that is, to get people from here to there with very low cost in little time. If I had to walk all that on my own my feet would definately aching a lot. So my thanks for today go out to all the bus- and traindrivers who make our lives so comfortable. 


OMG this is so true! I really dislike driving a car and am so happy that we got a good public transportation system here.

I'm very grateful for the financial assistance from the government. The system has its flaws and annoyances, but it still means I have a roof over my head  and I can generally clothe and feed myself and Julie.

Day 2: I'm thankful that there are people, celebrity and otherwise, who are willing to publicly stand up for the oppressed. With all the ignorant, deceptive hate being spread towards trans people, women, sexual minorities, racial minorities, religious minorities, immigrants, etc. It is so very comforting to see people standing up for you and to see that people you look up to have your back.

I am grateful for the interwebs. There might be way too much hate and stupidity on display for all to see, all the time, but there are such wonderful random acts of kindness (echoing Gareth's sentiments here). And it has connected me to people all over the world who have a special place in my heart, whom I've never met in IRL. There are always people and things and sites that will cheer me up and lift my spirits, no matter my mood!

Im grateful to be in a gaming community full of members who show continued generosity, and will always go out of there way to help a fellow SGN member.
over the years ive witnessed the unwritten mantra "to give something to someone, after someone else gave it to you"
