I think living overseas, if you let it, can make you a more thankful person. The things I once took for granted or even considered my "rights" in America are not so easily come by here. We ex-pats can either become bitter & cynical or thankful for the realization that any good thing we have really is a blessing. So here is my thankful list for today:
1) the sky is blue!!
2) there is water in my pipes!!
3) I got to take a shower this morning!!
The list could go on but it's study time now...
Happy Thankful Day to you!
