In Colombia whenever someone sneezes, another will say, salud or health.
If you sneeze a second time, they will say, dinero or money.
The third time you sneeze, they say, amor or love.
Salud is having good health—a strong and able body and absence of sickness.
Dinero is having the means to provide for oneself—not necessarily lavish but comfortable.
And amor is what it’s really all about—having those who you care deeply for no matter what.
This Thanksgiving I am going to be thankful for these three things.
Salud, dinero, amor.
The only three things I’ll ever really need.
