Thankful Thursday: 11/28/13

[As a part of National Blog Posting Month (NaBloPoMo), I'm posting here once a day during November.  Today is Day 28.]

[Thankful Thursday is a weekly segment that began 1/10/13 - read why here.  I invite you to join me in practicing gratitude!]

Would you look at that, Thanksgiving coincides with Thankful Thursday!  How fitting.  I'm just going to get right to it:
  • I'm thankful for all of the people in my life: family, friends, and coworkers - in all corners of the world!
  • I'm thankful for my job.  I feel really lucky to have been placed in this rural town in South Korea.  Sure, I seem to have a heavier workload than most of my TTG peers, but I am so happy with my co-teachers and students -- so I don't mind working hard for them!
  • I'm thankful to have the opportunity to teach abroad. Having English for a native language is a huge advantage these days, and  I'm well aware that I did nothing to deserve it.  So I am grateful for the ability and the many doors that it has opened.
  • I'm thankful that I have enough food to eat each day, a warm bed to sleep in at night, and the freedom to choose how to spend my time each day.
  • I'm thankful that my country allows its people to leave and travel to other parts of the world.  I'm also grateful that I have access to the internet and all of its information.
  • I'm thankful that I have clean, affordable bottled water that I can purchase just blocks away from my house.
Before signing off, I want to share with you this gratitude post by Kirke from Kirke in Detroit.  As a reader of his blog, I am continually inspired by Kirke's selfless attitude and giving spirit.  I urge you to take two minutes and give it a read!    

Happy Thanksgiving everyone!
