All the points you mention are valid except for the "all down to being a part of the EU which has allowed us to be part of all of this.", as there are plenty of such programs and initiatives outside the EU too.

To make an informed decision, you should also be critical and look at the cons. For example, the lack of democratic control in themes like the EU expansion policy, ECB programmes, migration. Brexit would be a great moment for the EU to reflect and ask its citizens what kind of EU they want, but unfortunately that doesn't seem to happen.
Sort of jingoistic!
Where are these "plenty of such programs and initiatives outside the EU too"?

You claim the lack of democratic control but the EU 27 vote on such stuff; there are vetos and factions with common interests.

EU citizens get to vote their MEPs and that demonstrates what kind of EU they want.
