Thanksgiving and Contrast
The most touching part of this Thanksgiving weekend though happened in Canterbury. Knowing that The Heiress was far from home and family her dorm mates got together and planned a proper feast as a surprise. She had tears in her eyes at the sight of a poster in the lobby inviting students to write down what they were thankful for. A card was passed around for everyone to sign and she showed us how full it was over Skype. While the others did the cooking, The Heiress gathered leaves to decorate the room and twelve of her new friends sat down to dinner. If I could I would give them all a big hug and say "Thank you!".
