Giving Thanks

Thanksgiving 2015 is little more than an hour away but I am thousands of miles from the last one. While growing up, and into my child-rearing years, Thanksgiving was always a family day centered on food (and a very traditional meal at that!).

Although I wasn’t on American soil for Thanksgivings 2013 and 2014, I still celebrated with family and food. What made these last 2 Thanksgiving holidays authentic was my PCV family and I am eternally grateful for their friendship, love and support.

So, to my A20, A21 and A22 family; I wish you a very happy Thanksgiving. To my Armenian hosts and counterparts, I apologize for not keeping in touch and send you my love; and to my family, friends and acquaintances I say “thank you” from the bottom of my heart. Because of you, I am acclimating; because of you, I am working; and because of you, I am finding my way home.
