Yesterday, the day before Thanksgiving, we returned to home to Okinawa after exploring Taiwan for almost a week. The trip was educational, inspiring and enlightening–truly fabulous. Today, we rested and gave thanks. We did so without turkey, cranberry sauce, garlic mashed potatoes, or pumpkin pie. Rather, we ate a late lunch at my favorite Chinese restaurant, located across the street. Needless to say, I am grateful for not having to prepare a Thanksgiving meal. We also are grateful for the opportunity to live in Okinawa and the means to explore the world. We are grateful for Russell’s employment. We are grateful that our adoption exit process paperwork has been submitted to Korea’s Ministry of Health and Welfare. We are grateful for our health. But, most of all, we are grateful for our family and friends, without whom we would live in a monochrome world.
From our family to yours, Happy Thanksgiving.
