My List

There are days when I miss certain things in my daily routine, I guess it happens to everyone from time to time, so here is a small list of why I'm grateful for what I do have. It helps to keep life in perspective don't you agree?

WHAT I MISS............................WHAT I HAVE

Microwave.....................Fresh Organic Produce

Starbucks...................... Endless cups of Brazil coffee right at home

Dryer............................ Clothes last longer

Driving................... Walks on the beach

Career....................Beli calling me MAMA,MAMA and I could not have a better BOSS

Friends......................I am working on making friends here and so far so good

Parents................My In-Laws have given me endless love and support they are my 2Nd parents

Sisters...................Have a wonderful Brother-in-law

Nephews............. .Beli is making new friends as well so I'm busy planning play dates

English................. Learning Croatian (classes begin in a few weeks!)

And I could continue but Beli just woke up and now back to Mommy duty.



(I wrote this list last year but now there are a few updates)

About the driving part; I'm more secure about driving around the city, all though the motorcyclists still scare me, they come around the corner so fast! AND I no longer miss the microwave.

Since moving overseas I have met many good friends which I'm very grateful for. They cheer me up when I'm having one of those days. (I took this picture at a children's birthday party, and I just thought it was so adorable that the little boy was trying to hug the birthday girl.)


And today is corner view "school" in Spain, hosted by Jane so I invite you to stop by and say hello! Even though Beli is not in school she does love to read books. Apparently in Spain children start attending school at 2 years of age!

  1. Someone dear to me once said that in order to receive something you got to open you hand and let some things you have slip out of the hand. Otherwise you won't get anything new. When you clutch your fist you can't receive anything . I am glad you are seeing the new experiences as enrichments in your life. It is hard to be in a foreign place, I know, but be open as you are and your home will be the whole wide world.

  2. Lists are very good at clarifying things for us, aren't they?! :-)

  3. What a great post!!! The part about Beli calling you under what you have instead of Career gave me a good laugh! So true in my life, too!! Since I love this post so much, would you mind if I become a copy cat and make the same list on my blog as well? I will credit you. I've been busy getting settled in, so I don't know when I will do it, but when I find the time, I would like to write a list of what I miss and have!

  5. What a sweet and lovely post. I find myself really missing my old home in Hawaii (I just moved about eight months ago), perhaps I will have to do a similar post to remind myself of my new blessings.
