November is a time to be thankful for the things we have (ironically just before December, a month full of wishing for things we DONT have…) I saw a whoooole lot of facebookers posting daily updates about what they were thankful for each day, and I decided that rather than pepper my wall (and everyone’s newsfeeds) with daily thanks I would write them all down day by day and share them all at the end of the month. Without further ado I give you to….(at least) 30 things I have been thankful for this passing November (with an occasional thought flitting through my brain at the time of writing it):
1: my adaptibililty
2: having a job even though it can be a real pain in the ass
3: new friendships
4: the opportunity to live in different countries
5: having so many reasons to smile and laugh
6: friends that have become family
7: Mundo Exchange
8: my hobo blanket and sleeping bag two things I could never travel without. These poor things have been through a lot.
9: my education
10: puppies! I just saw THE CUTEST puppy in the street and played with it for 10 minutes. Almost brought it home.
