My Father

I remember the rubies. I remember the 18 carat Gold jewelry that he used to give me in Argentina for my birthday.

My father was a doer, someone who could get things done. When we came together to America, he had to unlearn many things. He was no longer the boss; now he was an employee, an older employee. I don’t think he minded it very much. Being in the United States had been his dream all along. He had time to listen. He cared.
