Best post ever!!! Thanks, Turtle. You hit it on the head with so many of your observations. “If you have a comal, you, too, can have a business.” So true!

It reminds me of a couple of phrases in Spanish that I can never quite fully express in English:

“Se la ingenia” referring to someone figuring out a way to do something even if they don’t have the right circumstances, tools, resources. Kind of like MacGyver (people often call my husband a “Mexican MacGyver” because he’s a master at “ingeniárselas”.)

“Échale ganas” Kind of like doing your best, with enthusiasm, hard work, putting your best foot forward.
