I will keep this short and sweet today.
I am sitting on my balcony overlooking the water, watching the sun just start to make an appearance. It is still Thanksgiving back home…..we just had our “ex-pat” version last night. It wasn’t perfect, as we had to work, but we still tried to make it special and something familiar. So as I sit watching the sun peek in as it has just left the other side of the world, I find myself especially thankful for so many things:
I am thankful for new friends here that help keep me “sane”
I am thankful for finally being paid decently for a job that I am good at
I am thankful for having friends and family that support this adventure
I am thankful for having a balcony that allows me to watch the sun rise in the morning and set in the evening
I am thankful for the Internet that allows me to stay connected with the people I love back home
I am thankful that I have a little furball here that seems to love me (although I think he plots to kill me in my sleep?)
I am thankful to have the most amazing husband that just cooked for Thanksgiving by himself for the first time!
And I am so very thankful that I get to go home for Christmas in 3 short weeks
