Bendición náhuatl / Nahuatl Blessing

Con cariño para Fede y para ti, que llegaste aquí.

Que la tierra se una a la planta de tu pie y te mantenga firme, que sostenga tu cuerpo cuando éste pierda el equilibrio.
Que el viento refresque tu oído y te dé a toda hora la respuesta que cure todo aquello que tu angustia invente.
Que el fuego alimente tu mirada y purifique los alimentos que nutrirán tu alma.
Que la lluvia sea tu aliada, que te entregue sus caricias, que limpie tu mente y alma de todo aquello que no le pertenece.

May the ground join your soles and keep you firm, may it sustain your body when it loses its balance.
May the wind refresh your ears and give you at all times the answer that heals all that your anguish make up.
May the fire cherish your gaze and purify the food that will nourish your soul.
May the rain be your ally, may it caress you and clean your mind and soul of anything that doesn’t belong to you.

Some thoughts for my daughter

" Find a guy who calls you beautiful instead of hot, who calls you back when you hang up on him, who will lie under the stars and listen to your heartbeat, or will stay awake just to watch you sleep... wait for the boy who kisses your forehead, who wants to show you off to the world when you are in sweats, who holds your hand in front of his friends, who thinks you're just as pretty without makeup on. One who is constantly reminding you of how much he cares and how lucky he is to have you.... The one who turns to his friends and says, `that's her.' Unknown
