Before we rip into more tangible presents tomorrow, what kind of gifts do you have in your life that make you happy?

Here are some of mine:

Mom, who taught me to be grateful and just sort of gets me

Dad, who taught me feminism without realizing it, and how to use tools

My ex, who taught me to be self-sufficient and think on my feet

Friends, who have stuck by me despite being a hermit with a shitty attitude

Neighbors, who have been my therapists, champions, and angels

Pets (cats and dogs), who have been my furry snuggle buddies (A special shoutout to Norma, my ride-or-die bitch)

New coworkers, who have been friendlier and more fun than I could have hoped for
