Being thankful.../Dar gracias...


...that is what life is all about. We must learn to be thankful for what we are, for the people in our lives, for every time that we awake to a new day. And specially, we must be thankful for those who love us dearly and try to make our life better and happier every day, never mind what means they choose to use to do so. It's their intention that counts.

Thus, I am thankful for my daughters, for my brothers and sisters, for my students at school, for my job, for the many friends I have made along the way, as well as for those people who were just in my life for a season... all of these have made me what I am.


... de eso se trata la vida. Debemos aprender a ser agradecidos por lo que somos, por la gente en nuestras vidas, por cada día al que despertamos. Y especialmente, debemos ser agradecidos a aquellos que nos aman y tratan de hacer que nuestra vida sea mejor y mucho más feliz cada día, no importa de qué manera decidan hacerlo. ya que lo que vale es la intención.

Por eso, le doy gracias a mis hijas, a mis hermanos y hermanas, a mis alumnos en el colegio, a mi trabajo, a los tantísimos amigos que he ido haciendo a lo largo del camino, al igual que a los que estuvieron en mi vida sólo por un tiempo... ya que todos ellos hicieron que yo sea lo que soy.

That's very true Dear Jeannie! :)

Every living being that connects with us and in turn becomes part of our life, no matter how small or big, makes us the people that we are - we are all connected.

Muchos Besos Dear Friend!

Jean, could I ask you for a favor? I have read Spanish for an year when i was in college, which is about 4 years ago. I am really interested to learn more of it and revise whatever i had learnt.
Could you please tell me about some good online links from where I could learn it again.

Jean dijo...

I have no idea about that, but will search for a few sites and let you know the moment I come up with one I consider to be good, ok?
Check your blog... I have posted a new comment in your post "reaction"... or something like it! =)

Gracias Jeany, yo me considero una amiga, y es por eso que me identifico, en verdad hay que estar agradecidos por lo que tenemos.
Te quiero mucho.

Jean dijo...

Por supuesto que sos mi amiga!!!!
Pero más que estar agradecidos por lo que tenemos, es estarlo por lo que somos... lo que tenemos va y viene, lo que somos perdura en el tiempo, aún cuando ya dejemos de estar por estos lares. Yo tb te quiero mucho!

yes, that is what life is about, being thankful for everything we are and have as well as the people in our lives. But it is also about loving and being loved in return.
Keep up the good writing! I thoroughly enjoy what you write and how you do it, showing your heart and soul as they are.

Thank you, Andy, for your encouraging words! That is me, all the time! =)
