This blog has had visitors from more than 90 countries since we started it just about six months ago. (Our six-month anniversary was November 19, 2008). We wish all of our readers a "Happy Thanksgiving," even if it is not a holiday celebrated in your country. Thanksgiving is a time when we can reflect on the blessings we have in this world, in our countries, with our families and friends, and in ourselves. We are thankful for all of the blessings we have, even while we share in the sorrows such as those suffered last night in India.
I celebrated Thanksgiving in Italy with my Italian family here in Vicenza, and with friends from Italy, Germany, and Iran.
