Thank you for this opportunity to be sick in Bangkok, because it means I am in Bangkok. I am grateful for this boon of time, to be sick, and the remind of my general good health that I can further appreciate.
Thank you for the wonderful opportunity to meet new people from around the world and get to hear their experiences. Thank you for the sweet movie we joined together to watch and talk about afterwards.
Thank you for the fantastic neighborhood that I live in, with so many windows into Thai life. Thank you for the dear woman who cooks fried chicken and asks us when we pass where we are going, even if that is all we can translate with her.
Thank you for the friend who immediately adopted us when we got here and has taken us on so many adventures. Thank you for the friends we’ve made while traveling and all of the pending adventures that we will go on!
Thank you for my partner so I have someone to share these adventures and that bit of security in not having to go it alone.
Thank you for the other bloggers out there who have inspired and encouraged me. Thank you for the sparks and dreams they’ve created in me (Camino de Santiago!).
Thank you for all of my loved ones back home and the comfort they provide, even with these thousands of miles between us.
Thank you for all of the many other joys and people not listed here who have helped to shape this amazing experience of life.
This post was inspired by the fantastic blog, So Many Places, and her effort to express more gratitude. I’ve been sick and getting mopey so it seemed a great time to refocus my thoughts on gratitude and this amazing time on earth. Thank you Kim! Check out her incredible adventure on the Camino de Santiago! I hear it calling me now too!
