Christmas Eve in Spain one more year. I wonder what the toast will go to this year. It always went to us not flying back, but now that all hope is lost, we'll have to come up with something new... we'll see... For now will make a toast to gratitude, for I am just very grateful for all what this 2005 has given me: passing my state test, living in Spain a grown-up kind of life I had not know before, all my co-workers and even the brats I teach... I am grateful for everything I am learning, for the chance of being aroud my parents and friends.
My wish for the past five years was always to come bak and live here forever, and since one year will have to sufice, I am glad at least I am having it!
For the upcoming years, when I want to find my way back home for the Xmas season, I will just have to listen up close, and maybe I will hear this...
Just hear those sleigh bells jingling,
Ring ting tingling too
Come on, it's lovely weather
For a sleigh ride together with you.
