Although it is not celebrated here in Serbia, we did get to enjoy the Thanksgiving Holiday. The school put on a “Holiday Celebration” on Thursday evening at the UK Ambassador’s Residence. They conveniently live a block away from us and we had a great night. The music teachers at the school are opera sopranos and they had a truly awesome performance. The food was delicious and plentiful and we had plenty of wine and laughs. Mrs. Davenport was especially kind to have the Detroit Lions versus Green Bay Packers football game on during the evening! We topped off the night with a Skype session with my brother’s family back in Michigan. My dad was there and he got to see Ocean and the kids.
We are doing it again today with our family thanksgiving dinner. We’ve invited some non-American friends to share the great “American Slava,” Thanksgiving. I have so much to be thankful for in my life and I appreciate all that has been given to me.
