ok, here’s the situationPosted: June 14, 2013
Ok, not really.
Anyway, here’s what’s going on. Thanks to a number generous friends, I am doing IVF. Holy fucking shit, y’all. People are *giving* me money. And? People are *giving* me sperm. Some of these people I know and some I don’t and Jesus H. Christ on a cracker, people are giving me the things that I don’t have and cannot get myself so that I can have a baby. The world, my world, I guess, is right at some very basic level.
Let’s use ye olde internet to find some words to express just how grateful I am:
thankful – appreciative – beholden (from direct from my initial search)
beholden, gratified, indebted, obliged, pleased, thankful (from thesaurus.com)
Those are all correct (because I found them on the internet), but also don’t really hit the nail on its proverbial head.
The second definition from Miriam-Webster is
giving pleasure or contentment to the mind or senses <I’m glad for the grateful warmth of the fire on such a cold day>
And the synonyms for that one are, well, better? Something.
agreeable, blessed (also blest), congenial, darling, delectable, delicious, delightful, delightsome, dreamy, dulcet, enjoyable, felicitous, good, grateful, gratifying, heavenly, jolly, luscious, nice, palatable, pleasing, pleasurable, pleasing, satisfying, savory (also savoury), sweet, tasty, welcome
All of which is to say, yes.
And thank you.
