I was in Argentina last year during the Thanksgiving holiday. This year though, I was home and thrilled about spending quality time with immediate and extended family.
I ate way too much and over indulged in about 5 different desserts. I felt old when my cousin told me he had just spent $1000 on his apartment deposit. The same kid who I cradled and fed when he was an infant.
Another cousin had her geography book open to create a map of South America. When she was asked about teenage dating, she explained that high school relationships only last a few days so she wasn’t interested in dating. 😂
My nieces have gotten so tall and I honestly can’t believe how much they are growing nor how intelligent they are. I noticed their beauty coming through and recognized the fear that they will soon leave girlhood behind to become young women.
I missed all the Thanksgiving text messages from friends because I was too busy talking, catching up, laughing and taking it all end. I crept in bed at 3am wishing I could do it all over again.
