Giving Thanks

Give thanks to the Lord for He is good, His love endures forever.
— Psalm 107:1

I can hardly believe it's been almost three weeks since I landed back on US soil. It still feels like a dream that I was in Taiwan for a year, and it's even more surreal that I'm back in New York.

David and I are currently apartment hunting and living out of our suitcases so I feel a bit out of sorts. It's Thanksgiving, and I don't have access to my own kitchen or tools, which means no turkey thawing in the fridge or some baked good in the oven. We'll actually be going out to a restaurant to celebrate with family - something new and different. 

I'm not going to try and stuff this one post with everything that I'm grateful for - I pray that thankfulness is something that I can incorporate more into my daily life. But I will say that even though we don't have a place to call our own yet, I am thankful to have a roof over my head. I'm thankful for new friends and connections since I've been back - connections that I would not have made if I did not have my experience in Taiwan.  Friends. Family. You. Yes, you - the handful of you that take the time to read my ramblings. Thank you. 

Wishing you and yours a blessed Thanksgiving!
