El Día de Acción de Gracias

This year, I'm going to be celebrating Thanksgiving for the first time with some American friends. I'm having dinner with them after my Spanish class and am really looking forward to it!

To get into the spirit of things, I thought I'd pause for a minute during this busy day and think about what I am actually thankful for - it's an exercise that most people don't do nearly enough and puts things nicely into perspective! Here's what I came up with:

  • I am young and have plenty of time to achieve my goals.
  • I am in good health.
  • I have an amazing family, which I can always depend on.
  • I have a fantastic group of friends who always keep in contact with me, no matter how far away I go and no matter how long I stay there.
  • I have met some incredible new people since arriving here.
  • I have had a good education.
  • I am employed.
  • I like my job.
  • There is a roof over my head, food in my belly and a cup of tea in my hand.

    And, of course...

  • I'm in Spain!!
Happy Thanksgiving to one and all!!
