I'm thankful to be playing the sport I love (well not at the moment...) in a country that is also crazy about it. My team just won our last Pokal game, which means we are one of the eight last teams in all of Germany!
I'm thankful for these three sweeties, who bring so much joy into my life. I can't think of any other time that I laugh more than when I am with these fools.
I'm thankful for my mom who taught me how to be a strong, independent woman.
I'm thankful for my dad who taught me the importance of common sense and how to put a roof on a house (literally).
Honestly I don't like animals, but Avalanche has been in our family since we got her in Hawaii. She has been a part of my life for the last 13 years. My parents had to put her down a couple months ago because she was having health issues. I never thought I would cry about losing a dog!?
My sisters somehow talked my parents into getting this stuffed animal last year.
Heute bin ich dankbar, dass ich als Amerikanerin alles machen kann in Deutschland.
Today I am thankful that I an American can get by in Germany.
I respect the Germans and their crazy complicated language, which is why I am trying to learn the laguage, but I am always thrilled to see things like this:

I went to look for eyeglasses today and in one of the shops I said, "I just want to look," (in Deutsch of course) and she said (also in Deutsch), "What language do you speak?" (My American accent gives me away EVERY time.) I said English. She said, ok let's try it and we spoke the whole time in English.
Unfortunantely my English is getting a little schlecht.
Sometimes when I try to form sentences in English, I canNOT think of the right word, so I use a Deutsch word. (see the sentence above)
