Happy Thanksgiving!

This Thanksgiving, I have so much more to add to my longstanding list of things I’m thankful for.

My longstanding list:

  • A loving family
  • Caring friends
  • Food, water, clothing, shelter, safety
  • An education
  • A job
  • Everything else I have, but don’t need.

New additions to list:

  • Impulse – for pushing me to randomly book a round trip ticket to Lebanon at 4:00am one morning..(who knew it would end up being a one way ticket?)..  😉
  • The “sense” of Adventure – for always making me seek out new and exciting life experiences
  • Lebanon – for opening my eyes to entirely different world, for helping me to learn so much about myself, for introducing me to some of the most incredible people I have ever met, for inspiring me to create this blog, for introducing me to Lebanese food (Man’oushe!), and for helping me figure out what it is I want to do in life!

Happy Thanksgiving everyone!

I’m thankful for Twitter and all the connections I could make after reading your posts,I’m thankful to be intrigued by the idea of “An American Living Here” yeah, sounds like a book title or yet again a movie 😛

    Thank you for opening my eyes on things I never thought would affect me so much, thanks for your interest in my so called country. I think I need to update my list as well 😉
