Anyway, this week I am thankful that K was accepted into the Au Pair program that she applied to and has already had one family make contact as they are interested in hiring her to look after their children.
While I will miss her dreadfully when she is gone, I am thankful for the great opportunities this will expose her to and the different cultures she will learn about. I am thankful that she will get to experience a completely different way of life (I just hope she will be happy to come home to our little humble abode given the house she will be living in if this family decides they would like her to look after their children - a mansion is a bit of an understatement !!!)
I am thankful that she has grown up into a mature young lady who is ready to move overseas and stand on her own two feet (to a certain extent) and take responsibility for two children (or one child and one teenager to be more specific).
I am thankful for telephones and computers and skype which will allow us to stay in contact with her.
I am thankful that we will be in a position to go over and visit her while she is there because, while we can stay in contact by phone and skype, nothing compares to a really big, really squishy, really tight hug.
What are you thankful for today ?
Have you joined in with Rhianna ?
What are you waiting for ?
