Congrats on being an American, Chela!

My sister-in-law is Mexican. She's been in the U.S. for a couple decades. Always a hard worker, she has three or four jobs at a time, putting in 60 or so hours a week.

She loves Mexico. But the big news with her is that today she will be a citizen of the United States of America. As she told me, on March 6, she will become a "gringa!"

She's planning a party, her relatives from all over will be joining in to celebrate her achievement.

While I take being an American for granted, she is thrilled at joining the "club." I thank her for putting things in perspective for me.
