Friday Five-Five things for which I am deeply thankful


Welcome to the Friday Five!
(picture is the view from the end of my street in Chelsea, NYC about 6:30am)
This one is going to be veeeery simple: List at least five things (...) for which you are thankful. You may elaborate as you wish, or keep it simple.

People:
1.My beloved who I met 16 and change years ago and who I married in the Jewish tradition several years ago and who I made my domestic partner in NYC and who I will marry in Canada if we ever get it together..
2. My therapist who has seen me through thick and thin, with a 15 year hiatus, for 25 years (can you believe it?)
3 My friends who are there when I need them and when I don't. And my friend Margaret who I met when we were both 22 or 23 and playing squash and now both old...er and ill and still having fun.
4. My godchild the grown women who keeps my young.


Places: NYC of course

Graces: See 1.

Miracles: That I've made it this far after what I've put myself through. And the moon.

Hat tip to Princess Mindy for the idea.

So much thankfulness! It's amazing to have a therapeutic relationship over such a long time.

So nice to read your gratitudes. Thank you. A good therapist really helps! (Mine died a few years ago.)
