Things I'll Miss


   

It is the beginning of May and my time as a
    DoDDS teacher is nearing the end. As I frantically try to complete all the retirement paper work, pack out my house, teach, and everything else that needs to be done, I have had to remind myself to stop, breathe and take a look around. I still live in Germany! I have had the privilege to see the beauty, culture and many sights this country has to offer. I have enjoyed the fields full of flowers and mountains of snow, the spring green and colorful autumns. I have visited castles and cathedrals that are centuries old.  I have driven 100mph on the autobahn! I have eaten many varieties of schnitzel, black forest cake in the black forest, and gotten fresh bread from the neighborhood bakeries. And I have celebrated many Christmas’ at markets all around the country. I may have lived here for many years, but I still have to pinch myself as a reminder that it has not been a dream. The endless paperwork will not get the best of me!!!
