PREGNANCY, FAMILIA & MARIACHIS

by TERRY
(ANGLETON, TX. USA)

IT WAS MY 1ST VISIT TO MEXICO AND AS WE DROVE IN TO GUADALAJARA I SAW HOW BEAUTIFUL IT WAS. I WAS PREGNANT WITH MY 1ST CHILD.

WE WERE VISITING ALL THE FAMILY GATHERED IN GUADALAJARA FOR CHRISTMAS. MY HUSBAND AND I HAD BEEN MARRIED IN JANUARY OF 2005.

MY BABY WAS DUE IN APRIL OF 2006. THERE WERE MY IN LAWS-DONA MARIA, DON REYNALDO AND 9 OF THE 11 SIBLINGS WERE ABLE TO GATHER.

I NEVER KNEW SUCH HUGE FAMILIES EXISTED AND I WAS IN AWE OF ALL THAT LOVE. THE FOODS WERE DELICIOUS AND THE FAMILY WAS VERY LOVING.

WELL, AT THE STOKE OF MIDNIGHT, HERE COME MARIACHIS. MY HUSBAND HAD CONTRACTED THEM TO COME AND SERENADE ME AND THE OTHERS. I FELT SO SPECIAL AND I KNEW THAT THE SONGS THEY PLAYED MEANT A GREAT DEAL TO MY IN LAWS.

WE ALL WERE SO EXCITED. I AM RETURNING TO MEXICO THIS CHRISTMAS WITH MY HUSBAND. IT HAS BEEN 25 YEARS SINCE THAT 1ST CHRISTMAS VISIT.

I AM LOOKING FORWARD TO IT SINCE MY FATHER IN LAW HAS NOW PASSED ON. WE HAVE LOST MANY MEMBERS. IT WILL BE A TIME OF REFLECTION BUT THE GREAT JOY OF BEING WITH EACH OTHER ONCE AGAIN WILL NOT BE DIMINISHED. GOD AND LA FAMILIA ARE EVERYTHING.

THE MARIACHIS MIGHT EVEN COME AGAIN THIS YEAR.
