A Year of Gratitude - Day Eight

Day 8 - Pride
Today was Portland Pride.  
I just didn’t feel motivated today.  Maybe it was because I got in late again last night - two nights in a row - and I’m starting to feel it.  (I think my Inner Tigger is bouncing less for the moment.)  That’s OK.  It was a nice day, and I got to see some friends along the way.  I also got my laundry done.
But with Pride comes the feeling that I am lucky to live in a day and age when being gay isn’t something I need to hide.  There are a number of things that I would change about myself if I had the power to do it.  Being gay isn’t one of them.
So today, I’m grateful for Portland Pride, and Pride celebrations everywhere.
