Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!

Life is getting better in Spain.  I got a 9/10 on my 5 page test today in class.  YES, 5 pages!!!  So I am feeling like a Spanish speaking Goddess right now.  YIPPEE!!! QUE BIEN!
This is my first Christmas ever away from home (Dad or Moms).  So far I am doing okay on the homesickness front, but being in Spain has made me appreciate my family so much more.  There has been holiday seasons where sometimes I feel like I want to runaway from my family, but being away, reminds me of how special my family really is and what an amazing place I grew up in.  Because I am in Spain, where the cultural is so different than American homes, I am finding that I am one of the luckiest girls in the world, with the best parents, siblings and friends who have been my main support my entire life.  I am feeling perfectly blessed right now, with many lessons learned here in Spain. Lessons like being grateful, taking it little by little, letting go, and patience.
Tomorrow I am on my way to Manchester until Christmas Eve.  I am beyond excited to see Geraldine and Frank.  I will blog all about it.  I am a little behind on blogs, as I still need to share Barcelona with all of you, but no worries, it will get done.
I HOPE YOU ALL HAVE A WONDERFUL CHRISTMAS AND A LOVELY NEW YEAR!  
PLEASE BE SAFE IN YOUR CELEBRATIONS AND KNOW THAT I AM THERE IN SPIRIT!!
