This month, we celebrate Veterans/Remembrance Day, and Thanksgiving. While I personally only like a few holidays out of the year, these two have a special meaning to me, as a US Navy veteran & as someone who lost a parent last year. Even though my military enlistment was short, I am thankful for all of the life lessons that I gained during my training, and the friends that I made. I’m thankful for having a chance to fix misunderstandings with my Mother, before she passed away in 2017. I’m thankful for my family, my in-laws, and my honorary family members (friends) who have supported me, through the good times and bad. I’m thankful for all of those who have served in the military, who are serving now, and who are considering serving their country in the future. I will remember those are still Missing In Action, and those who are POW’s who haven’t come home yet. In the virtual world, I’m thankful for my partner, Josh, who is also my real life best friend. I’m thankful for the friends I’ve made in the 10+ years I’ve been on Second Life, who at times have been closer to me than people I’ve known for much longer. I’m also thankful for the friends I’ve made in other online communities, such as LiveJournal, Myspace (remember that? lol), and Facebook, as they have become a part of my extended family as well.
