El día de la acción de gracias–great food, good words

Thanksgiving–my most favorite holiday, is right around the corner.  And with that exciting news a Spanish Proverb comes to mind:

barriga llena,  corazón contento
 (a full stomach  makes for a happy heart)

With all the yummy Thanksgiving food this particular saying seems appropriate.  But Thanksgiving isn’t all about a full tummy. It’s about spending time with others, enjoying family, and being thankful for what you have.  So I believe we should amend this saying to:

corazón lleno, corazón contento
(a full heart makes a happy heart)

A todos, ¡disfruten el día de la acción de gracias!
