Grandmas are one thing, but abuelas are another. Here are five things my Abuela taught me.
1. Always have a good meal.
Whether it's pan con queso (bread and cheese) or a tortilla - that is not a good meal. A good meal doesn't end until at least the third dish, with all your food groups. Because if you stop, Abuela will get you with a chancla (sandal).
2. Everything is included in the bill: the food, services, taxes and.... silverware?
3. Forgiveness is beautiful, even to those that don't deserve it.
4. Never leave home without a sweater, or else you'll catch a cold
(put on a sweater or else you'll catch a cold my baby)
5. Most importantly; to have paciencia y fe (patience and faith)
