Happy Thanksgiving aus Deutschland!

Happy Thanksgiving everyone! It is late in the evening here and I hope everyone is having a wonderful day with family and friends! There is SO much to be thankful for, our loved ones, our health, all the blessings we experience everyday!

Things I am thankful for today:
My health and my legs: I have been walking so much and was able to run today with my brother.
  • Sunshine and sky: the beauty of the earth in the sunshine, the plants, the sky! I am even grateful for the rain because it makes the sun that much better.
  • Friends! I am catching up a bit on Facebook and see my friends and family following my trip, wishing me well and baking for their big turkey dinner, my friends and family are so beautiful and I am so thankful for them!
  • Forgiveness: I am so thankful today for the chance to constantly start over and have mercies that are new every morning, cuz boy do I need them! From God, my family, my brother (putting up with me as a muddle through my first European experience) and for being able to forgive myself when I need to!
  • Life and freedom.

So far, my trip has been amazing!! I am in love with the countryside and the beautiful and varried cities! I love the little villiages and the old parts of town. We are doing more traveling in Southern Germany and Bavaria than I thought, but are being very fruigal and it is worth every moment! Here are some highlights!

The view from Neuschwanstein castle built by Ludwig II. It was beautiful! Nestled into the foot hills of the Bavarian Alps, the view from the balcony is of his fathers castle!
