Thankful Thursday: 8/29/13

[Thankful Thursday is a weekly segment that began 1/10/13 - read why here.  I invite you to join me in practicing gratitude!]

When this post publishes, I'll be on my 14-hour flight to Seoul, South Korea!

At Luke's last Tuesday (which I can't believe  was over a week ago, by the way) I made a Google Form so friends and family could sign up to receive biweekly emails while I'm living across the globe.  I was debating whether or not to add any fields apart from name and email, but in the end I included an "Additional Comments" box -- and am I ever glad that I did.  So today I'm thankful for all of the well wishes and supportive comments that people left me through that form, on cards, and in texts & emails.  

It feels a lot more difficult leaving this third time than it did the other two, and I'm sure it's not any easier on my family and friends.  So thank you, parents, for letting me leave again; I know I will learn a great deal this year, and plan to share as much of it as possible on this blog so that others can learn/benefit from the experience as well.  Thank you family and friends for entertaining my crazy idea of moving to South Korea, and a preemptive thank you for keeping me informed of what's going on in all of your lives : )

  1. Leaving is always so tricky! I always cry. Even for just a two week vacation!

    I'm looking forward to reading about your adventures!!
