thank you.

We've been a little busy around here, so my posts have been intermittent. In honor of (American) Thanksgiving (and love), I thought I'd move my usual spot of Friday gratitude to today. And put it in a simple short list of thankfuls...

{sol : colonia, uruguay : by me}
family and friends and reconnections
the ability to travel and to return (erm, married + with child)
the art of letting go--perhaps impossible to master, but I've grown heaps in this area of letting go of non-material things
sweet mail with tiny lettering
the cheesecake baked and the apple crisp still but a glimmer in my imagination
a gringo thanksgiving at the end of the world
that candle wax accidents can be removed (note to teenage me: do not cut the carpet fringe)
internet (because, really, how was 14-year old me supposed to know how to get the wax out?)
frutillas regionales
to explore "home" for a lifetime, to discover it's everywhere S + I are together
to adapt together
waking up refreshed
the first hug of the morning
baby hiccups, elbows and knees that pop and somersault around my womb

What thanks are you giving today?

These are such beautiful things to be thankful for... some large and some small. I am thankful for those around me who love and support me. I am always thankful for them. I am thankful for God who loves me like no other... for all he has given me, for those he blesses around me. I am thankful for little miracles that I witness, for special moments and memorable times.

I wish you a lovely weekend ahead,

Consider me inspired from my visit here this evening. How cool that you don't wait an entire year to be thankful. Indeed, it seems to be woven into the very fabric of your life.

I love your list, and I love being enveloped in a warm hug in the morning.

How amazing it must feel when baby boy summersaults in your womb. Just wait until he starts doing backflips, lol!!

A warm hug for you, my dear :)

Me gusta el día de acción de gracias, es una lastima que en España no lo celebremos, espero que lo incorporemos a nuestras fiestas con el tiempo!

Hi H- Great thankful list- I agree the internet rocks- My older son asked us a few years ago- 'mom when you were little and you wanted to find out the biggest and most poisonous animals did you go on wikipedia' the converstation ended in me feeling REALLy old!
Hope you can stop by tomorrow...

I love reading your posts. They just put a smile on my face.
I hope to someday have a list like yours, but today I will be thankful that I have a loving family, loving dog, and the belief that such things are possible for anyone, even me.
