This afternoon, after my French class, instead of calling him, I went to lunch and shopping. "alone". I need time to think about life here in Paris.
This evening my cell phone rang:
"Hello?" I say.
"What happened? Avez-vous reçu mon message aujourd'hui and yesterday?" he asked.
"Yes, Oui, I did receive your message today and yesterday, but I was busy." I replied.
He will not let our 'relationship' fade. He knows how much I enjoy the, fancy dinner parties, interesting people and places. When he told me about the soiree I was missing tonight, on my "1-year Paris Anniversary", I screamed.
"Okay." I agreed, knowing that I will most likely be asleep.

"Ughhh..." I said out loud when I hung up the phone.
Tonight, although I am missing a wonderful dinner in the City of Light tonight, at a place I've been wanting to experience. I am grateful for the invitation.
Although I am also missing my niece's High School Graduation today in Las Vegas, (the other City of Lights) I am grateful for my wonderful family in Las Vegas.
It's important to be grateful for all the things in our lives, no matter what it appears to others. What are you grateful for?...feel free to share a comment.
