Giving Thanks On Thanksgiving To People Back Home (Laos)
November 26, 2009
As we celebrate thanksgiving with family here in United States. I am thinking back to Laos witnessing and experiencing how less they have but yet they seem contented. Over the years I have the opportunity to made many great friends during my visits. I gained so much in sights of the lao rich history and traditions. My grand mother for instinct; she is in her late 90’s. She doesn’t remembered her day-to-day activity, but she yet remembers her younger days, as I sat with her I asked her many questions. When she was a child what kind of games does she plays and how did she meet my grand father and was it an arranged marriage? Her story was very intriguing and very sad since she loss her husband at a very young age. She told me she has a lot of “boun” since she out lived all of her best friends and have many children, grand children and great-grandchildren to enjoy. I just hope she has the opportunity to see my nephew, he is the first great-grandson born in the United States. I hope my sister make a trip to Laos soon.
The best part about holidays are spending time with families and friends. I made a trip back to my family as much as I can.
I want to wish people whose visit my blog’s the best Thanksgiving.
