Gracias Tio Sam & Happy Birthday America

If you've been following Babushka you know I'm all about the positive, wonderful things in life. So if you think this is a political statement JU SO FONII!!! Ok, si, maybe a little, but mainly it's about gratitude. Gratitude to a country that welcomed and still welcomes my people from Cuba.


Mil Gracias to you mi querido USA,
 for as a first generation Cuban American I can never say it enough.




 I know what my fate would have been if you hadn't welcomed my family.



MY CHILDHOOD

Children indoctrinated into Communism


MY YOUTH

Control in all categories


MY SHOPPING LIST

Rations Book


STORES TO SHOP
Slim Selection




And though we are all children of immigrants,
I only need to look 90 miles away to see where I would have been

 and know what I would have done.


Exodo del Mariel



Feliz Cumpleaños America,  Happy 4th of July!
Celebrate your freedom with pride and cheer.

For my part, I'm adding gratitude to the celebration.




Bohemian Besos a todos.  Cuidensen.

P.S.  The photos were found on Pinterest, some on Cuban groups on Feibu.  Perdoname that I didn't find or write down the exact sources.  The author of the video is Gianluca Zanna, a former Italian Immigrant.

Groovy Spanglish speaking Grandma of 6 who loves life and all its adventures. Motivational while still keeping it real, Babushka shows how all things looked at with gratitude are good, and how to say to la vida- JU SO FONII!!!
