Lately, I have been reflecting on how lucky I am to have met such fabulous ladies in Geneva. They had some pretty tough shoes to fill as far as awesomeness with my gals back home. However, I have been very fortunate, and thus this week’s gratitude post.
It’s always nice to have a support network. But in a foreign country, it is equally as important.
As culture shock comes on, or a “bad Swiss day” rears its head, I am thankful to have these women in my life. Plus, there’s only so much Gabe can take 🙂
A lot of the times, we have the same frustrations and joy. It’s good to know that other people usually have been through what you are going through, or just simply understand. This could include major things, or minor things. It’s pretty funny some of the stories we all share. Like, for instance, everyone has forgotten to label the produce at the store and gotten yelled at. And, everyone’s had an extremely awkward doctor’s visit.
It’s also fun to share holidays away from home with others. Both with people who are familiar with the traditions, as well as sharing what we do with others
It’s also awesome to celebrate the good times. Of course, many birthdays, and even I’ve had the pleasure of seeing 2, almost 3, little ones be born.
Geneva is a transient city. People come and people go. The length of time one might stay in a city is easy changeable and usually not very long.
This Friday, I continue to reflect on my good fortune and I’m just happy to have had the opportunity for knowing them in this period of time.
