Today is Thanksgiving in the USA and millions of people are sitting together with friends and family sharing turkey, cranberries, pumpkin pie, etc. Today I'm teaching a class at the university here in Germany and grading papers; it's a normal work day. Earlier this month I declared to a fellow American that November was a great get-it-done month since there were no holidays. I was promptly laughed at for forgetting Thanksgiving -how do you forget Thanksgiving?! By living abroad for so many years. Yet somehow it still feels strange to not celebrate the holiday.
Today I'm thankful for friends and family, for God who centers me, for the internet which has allowed me to stay in touch with people, blog, and meet new people, and for all those special moments we witness that just take our breath away.
What are you thankful for?
