If there's one thing I've learned in Deutschland it is definately the importance of Family. This trip has made me realize that my family goes way beyond the nation of Canada. In fact it reaches all the way across the Atlantic ocean to the wonderful country of Deutschland.
I have met so many new family members during my time here in Deutschland, and even though it may only be my first or second time meeting them, I already feel like part of the family. My family in Deutschland is a nice, generous, beautiful, amazing group of people and I already love them SO much. I know I've met amazing people when I feel like I've known them forever after saying my first hello.
Arthur's party was beautiful today. I felt completely at home. I laughed, I talked, I ate, I sang, I cried.
You know that saying 'It's better to have loved and lost, than to never have loved at all'? Well today that saying actually has real meaning to me. Even though I will miss all of my family greatly, I would not trade the experience for anything in this world. It was better to have met you all, and miss you know, then to never have known you at all.
So, my tears are over for now, but the memories are going to last a lifetime. And that, my friends, is priceless. I owe it all to my family here in Deutschland who I've known only for a short time, but already love to bits :)
This post is for everyone of my relatives here in Deustchland. May God bless you abundantly, for I will never forget how you have blessed me.

I love you guys.
