I got an email from my sister yesterday, and she asked "Is it hard being in a place where they don't celebrate Thanksgiving?" The answere is both "Yes - very!!" and also "No, not at all." We miss our friends and family so very much, and that's difficult, but we are also so very thankful.
These months on the road have been many things: taxing, joyous, maddening, frightening, enlightening, eye-opening. Sometimes we think we're brave and intrepid, and sometimes we're convinced that we're complete idiots. Living in this uncertainty has made us so very aware of our blessings. I know it sounds corny. It doesn't feel corny.
Our plan for a Thanksgiving blog was for each family member to list the things we're thankful for, and we realized that it was almost absurd. There's nothing that we're NOT thankful for right now.
