International Week on the blog is in full swing. Niamh Clune contributed Paddy’s Green Shamrock Shore, and Heather Reid shared My Scotland. On Saturday, we’ll see Prem Rao and his incredible India. Monday it’s Susannah Friis with a laugh-out-loud piece on Australia. Our grand finale features photojournalist Tom Carter on China, including stunning photos and a photo-video presentation.
International Week has been an education and experience beyond my wildest dreams!
I’m grateful I have a loving family. I’m grateful that I’m near my son, daughter-in-law, and grandsons after 4½ months of vagabond hotel-hopping. I have a roof over my head and a few bucks in the bank. I’m one lucky grandma.
I’m grateful for our U.S. Military and for the sacrifices they make every day. Let’s not forget them this holiday season. Take a moment and address one of your holiday cards to:
A Recovering American Soldier
