Weekly Photo Challenge: Thankful

I should have seen this week’s theme coming, what with Thanksgiving in the US having just passed.

How does one express thankfulness with one photo? As I thought about the challenge I realised that I couldn’t. Right now, as I sit here in Belgium and as I prepare to head to France and Switzerland to see friends, I am thankful for this opportunity to travel. I’m thankful that I’ve got to see my host parents, from when I was an exchange student in Belgium in 1988/89, again.

I’m thankful for getting to experience the amazing colours that go with European autumn.

I’m thankful that I was able to strengthen friendships with friends from way back when, and to get to know their wild, wonderful kids.

I’m thankful for sublime, rich Belgian beer and French wine …

And finally, (for this post, anyway) I am thankful that I don’t need to go to cathedrals, churches or chapels to find God but that I can appreciate them anyway.

I believe one should try to remain thankful daily – not just on one, special day a year. Life isn’t always easy, it’s true, but there is always at least one thing for which one can be thankful! Not so?
