Celebrating Thanksgiving abroad helps me focus my attention on gratitude.
As an American abroad I often celebrate Thanksgiving in a vacuum while the rest of the society around me races along. Still, as we plan gatherings of Americans and source turkey, stuffing, cranberries and the other necessary fixings for our favorite Thanksgiving dishes, I notice that I have more time to simply be thankful. And that is what it’s all about.
Happy Thanksgiving, wherever you are!
