Thankful Thursday

Today I'm thankful for cultures different than our own. Sometimes, most notoriously as Americans, we are supremely ethnocentric. Ask any European who has been paying $4+ gasoline for years now.

I love Dutch tulips. I love the tango, German engineering and watching Kenyan runners. I love Thai peanut sauce, sushi, limoncello and sticky toffee pudding. I'm thankful for what research scientists are doing both here & abroad. I love the hope that Ellis Island embodies. I love those terrified but mighty colonists who left their families to try something new. And ultimately, I'm thankful for all those who came before us no matter where they were from.

What are you thankful for today?
