I'd like to wish all my American friends a happy and peaceful Thanksgiving!

My only Thanksgiving was back in 1987 when I was an Au Pair in Washington DC. Thanksgiving was a holiday I looked forward to, one so American it didn't make me homesick. To be honest, I can't really remember much from the meal itself. I do remember watching over this giant roasting bird in the oven, basting it and waiting for this little thingy on the side to pop up. The gravy was to die for and the potatoes were delicious. I'm sure there was stuffing and all kinds of wonderful things, but all I can remember is feeling very full at the end :) Oh, and a four day weekend! Very important for an Au Pair!

I loved the tradition of saying thanks. It's so important to take a moment and reflect on what we do have instead of chasing what we don't. So, as I sit on the other side of the Atlantic, I'd like to say how thankful I am for getting to know you all and this of course includes my friends from all over the world. You brighten my days and broaden my horizon.

In a couple of weeks we enter advent. I love lighting candles and sitting on front of the fire place. Norway can be pretty cold and dark this time of year and candles add warmth and also the hope of a new spring. So tonight I'm lighting one for my flist! *hugs*
