Thanksgiving and gratitude

Our own little thanksgiving dinner. I have so much to be thankful for. I take it for granted sometimes, all of it, the little things, the big things, I don't daily appreciate what I have. I just see what is missing, or not done, until a fight like this weekend. And then I am flooded with the realization of what I have and how empty my life would be without him. Again, I was reminded this weekend of where he came from -how different that was from me. Holidays I get a yearning for family, large crowds of relatives, most of whom I do not like, but that is what I am programmed for. He is programmed to ignore the holidays..... He said he does not understand the fakeness that people have, the putting on the persona and being polite when everyone hates everyone. But, we do not have that  fakeness with each other. When he said this, I just gave him a hug. Nothing more to say.
