This month's Homework Assignment is to show us or tell us about those things, people, etc. for which you are most grateful. Join me in giving thanks to those people who make your life special. I know that my Canadian friends have already done this, so perhaps you can share your photos and Thanksgiving stories from this year?
I have plenty of things to be grateful for and the people who accompany my life are a major part of that. I moved a lot during my youth and know how some relationships break because of distance. So I am very glad that I have some friends for years even though we don't see us that often. My friend Ey (here in a pink wig) for example is someone I know for about 10 years and the friendship survived her moving away...
My friends from the Ruhr area are also very dear to my heart. We met through parties and common friends, but these are the ones I turn for when I need someone to talk to or just hang out! Like SIntra above or the ones here:
My friends from the internet are also very special. Although my favourite forum has been shut down earlier this year, the follow up project is still going strong! I know many of the people also from real life and met them a community meetings or just festivals. But even the ones I never met in person gave good advice and had an open ear for me when I needed it!
I can even add all the people I met over my blog to that list! Seeing the comments chears me up all the time and some posts on their blogs really got me thinking. The blogger community - at least the ones that I met- are a very supportive and lovely bunch! I never so much as recieved an evil comment!
Some more real life persons are also very important to me. My family who is an awesome bunch! My mum who visited me last week, my aunts and uncles who might be a tad strenous, but help in every way they can. My dad and his girlfriend who helped me finding a flat here in Heidelberg. All of them - even my boyfriend's family- make me feel happy and loved in every way!
|BTW, not my family. They are picture shy|
And speaking of love - I thank all the gods I don't believe in for meeting my amazing boyfriend! He is just the best! Taking care of me when I'm sick, supoorting me when I have a hard time in my job, even wants to move with me to a part of the country he hardly ever visited. Sorry, girls, this guy is mine and it will stay that way! ^^
