However, I do remember them by showing me to never give up. Their words and actions will be with me forever, as hard as life gets, never back down, if you do… you better get back up. And to this day, I have been knocked down twice, but I have been able to get back up. Therefore, after losing two of my favorite people, there is now a good reason to celebrate Dia de Los
We'd light candles, say the prayers and motzi, and I'd happily devour whatever was placed in front of me. As the years went on, the dinners became smaller, and there was less meat, but it was no less delicious. Mother was a wonderful cook, but I could tell, the stress of Friday night was definitely not her favorite time of the week. Camp Life: We filed out of the grimy tent and I peered into the sad brown eyes of the woman in front of me. They were filled with hope, but I knew, that nothing could allow us to escape.
But try to look at the bigger picture. You have family and friends that love you, and are there to celebrate with you. Enjoy your family and friends and be grateful that you can create lasting memories. Express Your Gratitude: 1. Call or text your family and let them know how grateful you are for their love and support.
Later on in the day, we had our first meal. The cooks and staff treated the meal they prepared for us as a feast, even though it was very simplistic consisting of only canned meat and ramen noodles. Over dinner, I began to recognize the Haitian love for conversation. They were so intrigued with everything that I had to say, comprehending my words and creating an engaging response, despite their broken English. They would find happiness from the littlest of things said, never going a sentence without a soft chuckle.
There wasn’t a red carpet, but there were pieces of roses and other flowers spread on the ground like a trail. My Uncle was the main show, as his smile was contagious to everyone, especially my mom’s. Although no one noticed or cared, I felt because of my teeth, my smile was ugly for my age. After renewing vows, we had a quick dinner before most of my cousins and my brother got a chance to try the beach. It was really great, but didn’t last as long as it should of, but the sun had already set.
He had a little son that was sick he could not walk good. Bob hoped that Scrooge will rise his pay and he could pay the doctor for little Timmy and he will not be sick anymore. He also hoped that they will eat turkey some day because the turkey was expensive but at the end he and scrooge were very close friends and he was like the uncle of little Timmy he was very happy! In my opinion A Christmas Carol is one of the best Christmas movies that I have seen and it gives you a lesson on how to treat others because there is always some consistency, so you always have to be happy and give your
While there have been many bumps along the way for both of us we are still friends to this day. We both wasted talent, I could’ve been very good at basketball if I would’ve put in the effort but it just wasn’t there all the time. Mitch could’ve had some awesome opportunities to play lacrosse and wrestle in college. Our friendship at this point is almost unbreakable because of everything we have done together, we were basically like brothers for a few years. We would go on each other’s vacations with family, we would eat at each other’s houses, and would even stay at each other’s houses for weeks at a time over summers.
One of the special meals my Family has had last year was tamales on Thanksgiving,the reason why we had tamales is because my dad buys them from a lady from my neighborhood and that year he decided to share them to us and my whole family and everyone was there to enjoy the food we brought and we had music family and all the food was gone which is a good thing because everyone enjoyed it
In the midst of the pain, I found myself closer to my Oak Cliff community because they understood our struggle, as their very own struggle. Along with solidarity that came with just one look, our neighbors would knock at my door and bring us Pozole or Tamales anything they had cooked and we returned the favor vice versa, sending Gorditas or Enchiladas. Dancing in the parking lot, made it seem that we didn’t have any worries but as soon as the mailman brought the bills the smiles would be hidden till the next weekend when cumbias would blast. In one of these “nightly meetings”, I realized people in my “barrio” were full of life even if their bank accounts were mutually dead. Through the darkness, mi “gente” taught me that the torch must be passed along to keep the flame burning bright.
I am so thankful for everything I have in my life, like my family and friends, and reminding myself of that gives me a positive outlook on life. When something goes wrong, I am quick to remind myself that it can be worse, and that everything will be fine. I know that many more people have it hard out there, but appreciating what I have brings happiness into my life. My friends also give me joy, making me laugh about every little thing in our conversation. When we talk about the future, no one is pessimistic.
Thanksgiving dinner is a very special time and is getting close. We all go spend time with family, but most importantly eat good food. Now sometimes there is something on the table that you are craving fiercely and that’s all you think about until you get some. Well same goes for extreme sports. Have you ever looked at a cliff and thought, 'Wow!
Performance Analysis of “Appalachian Journey” An analysis of the documentary “Appalachian Journey” by Alan Lomax proves that the musical performances featured are examples of traditional music. The songs performed used traditional music instruments and styles. Many songs were passed down through oral tradition, and many were stories of real events. The people of the appalachian mountains used banjo’s, guitars, and fiddles while singing throughout the documentary, including hand carved instruments and sound making toys.
Sadly, it was the end of summer and it was the year I was going into 7th grade for junior high! I spent a long time trying to find the perfect school. The junior high all of my friends were going to was Desert Ridge, which was a huge school with many long hallways that never end. It was very close and convenient to our house. My family and I also found a school called GCA.
