I’m in transit today, and this is the first year I’m without my family on Thanksgiving. But I’ve never been more thankful in my life. I’m so thankful to have loving family and friends around the globe looking out for me. I’m thankful to have had the opportunity to study in Europe not once, but twice, opening my eyes to so many new points of view and making me braver and stronger. I’m thankful that I’ve been healthy this whole semester. I’m thankful for all of the classes I’ve taken with smart and kind professors. I’m thankful for good food (even though the turkey and cranberry sauce are lacking over here).
And a huge shoutout to my parents for being supportive in letting me go on crazy adventures to learn about the world. I love all of you, even though I don’t say it enough. I’m missing you today, but you’re in my heart and even though I’m having a great time, I can’t wait to see you at home!
