I know that this post is a few days late, but being a Native English Teacher in Korea means that I get to teach my kids about Thanksgiving for the whole week! So…
Happy Thanksgiving guys! This is that time of year where I miss my family and friends at home a lot. I know that my journey in Korea is reaching its second year, but I’ve had Thanksgiving with my family for twenty-four years before I packed up and left them. This is also the time of year where I suffer from major FOMO because I see my family and friends back at home enjoying white people food and most importantly their company. I emphasize white people food because there is not a grain of rice in sight, until black Friday. There are all of these opportunities to see the world because the world is a beautiful place, but there is also the price of not being with your family during the holidays!
But I digress, let’s go back to what Thanksgiving is all about! White people f- I mean-being thankful. I think what makes life worth living are the things that you are thankful for. So here’s what I want to give the most thanks to:
Family- I honestly wouldn’t be where I’m at if it wasn’t for the love and support of my family.
Mom and Dad- You gave me the world and you gave me the strength to go on this journey.
Jessica- you are one of my best friends and I am always here for you.
To the rest of my family, my big crazy family, thank you for the love and support that you’ve always given me, I hope that you feel the same way about me. I try to tell my friends about you guys and they can feel the love from over here.
Remember to sit back and think about the things that you’re thankful for, remember you don’t need a day to acknowledge the things that you’re thankful for. Life is short, let people know that you love them because we all know the world could use some more.
