I am thankful.

I am thankful for my two kids that could have easily made these last five months unbearable.  I  have made them difficult at times, but they have not.
I am thankful to be married to the most unselfish man on earth.  Who only wants what's best for us and willingly gives it to us at all cost.
I am thankful for two older kids that are so capable that I don't need to worry about moving half way around the world. 
I am thankful for Monique who has been willing and has done anything to help me adjust to my new country.  She is truly one of the kindest and most thoughtful people I have ever met.
I am thankful for Lori and Kelly who have included me in their groups and have been great friends when I needed them most.
I am grateful for my family and my friends at home who claim to miss me and actually notice that I'm gone. (do you, really?)  Even if you don't, thanks for pretending.
I am grateful for the amazing group of women that I have been allowed to walk with and join the book club with.  Their stories are fascinating and they are inspiring.
I am thankful for the incredible women I have met through my ward and the examples they are to me. 
I am thankful for how tolerant the Swiss can be of us stupid Americans who don't speak their language and act like they should be able to speak my language.
I am not grateful for the mean Swiss people that have yelled at said stupid American for reasons I am still not sure of.


  1. I am thankful you are blogging about your experiences and yes we do miss you! Thanks for reminding me to make a list of what I'm thankful for.

  2. You made me blush..... Happy Thanksgiving to you and your wonderful family!!
