Does it mean you’re less thankful if you just focus on a few things?
Our little family has been SO privileged to travel all over Europe and the US in 2013. I don’t say it much ’round these parts, but travel is just that – a privilege.
As Americans, we are free to roam around (mostly) as we please. Many countries open their doors to us; visas are (relatively) easy to obtain. We’re financially blessed with a little extra left over every month to fund our wanderlust habit.
As I worked on updating our Where We’ve Been page, memories kept popping up. Remember when… we stood on top of the world in the Swiss Alps, jumped into the sea at the Cinque Terre, acted like tourists in Salt Lake City, beheld the wonder of a zillion tulips at Keukenhof, and tasted the world’s best French fries in Brussels? How great was that?!
I am so, so thankful for the opportunities we’ve both seized and been given this past year. Not every year will be like this one, and we probably can’t support a regular adventure habit once we move back to the US.
Therefore, I’m taking time now to say… thanks, God. Thanks for all you’ve allowed the five of us to experience, work through, and walk together in 2013.
What one thing are you thankful for this year?
