Weekly Photo Challenge: Thankful

The year isn’t over yet. But I must say it has been a tough time for me and my family as we unexpectedly lost our father to cancer. The loss was painful. And still it lingers.

Yet, life must go on for every one of us. I guess we just have to look at the brighter side of things.

Indeed 2012 has given me tons of experience, both happy and sad.

To travel with wonderful people, to experience breathtaking places, and to enjoy the unforgettable journeys– these are the 3 reasons why I am still grateful for everything that has happened to me over the year despite of what happened. And with Christmas coming, I’m pretty much sure there are more things to look forward to next month (assuming that the world doesn’t end contrary to what the Mayans predicted).
