I’m thankful for so many things, like, where I get to live up here in the country with wide open fields and deer that roam free. I’m thankful to be living on the edge of a beautiful, tidy, little, village here in Germany. The homes are made of brick and stone, and the gardens are manicured and bursting with thick, green grass, beautiful flowers of all different types, and trees that are older than you can imagine.
I’m grateful that my rent is paid as well as electric, water, and so forth. I’m very lucky and thankful to have good food to eat and nice things to drink, not to mention clean water. Being able to bathe whenever I want is such a luxury that I’m truly grateful for.
I’m so thankful to have my funny, playful, Poodle-puppy, my constant companion who loves to amuse me and help ease the loneliness in my soul regarding my family and friends in America and England that I still so greatly miss after decades of living here.
I have someone so special in my life who loves me like no other, and for my man, I’m truly and deeply grateful. He does everything he can to make me happy and comfortable. I feel protected here, and this is something that means so much to me, as I am living in a foreign country and I just can’t seem to be able to immerse myself in the culture because I’m just too open, too friendly.
This brings me to the point where I say, “Yes, I’m grateful, however, I do miss a few things, and those things seem enormous when all you have are the memories.”
