María Sarmiento González: “Yo, mayor,mayor, no soy”

cumple maria sarmiento 1Sábado 5 de noviembre. Nueve de la noche. Llueve a ratos en San Mateo y las calles comienzan a quedarse vacías tras un intenso día de Feria. Sin embargo, en la Avenida de la Constitución, concretamente en el Restaurante Día Feliz, la fiesta acaba de comenzar. Allí se reúnen más de ciento cincuenta hombres, mujeres y niños de cinco generaciones.  Son familiares y amigos de María Sarmiento, que celebra su 105 cumpleaños rodeada de cariño y atenciones.

María está sentada en la mesa principal del local, comiendo papas con mojo y picando queso y aceitunas. “Yo como de lo que haya. A mí me gusta todo”, asegura con simpatía. Dice además que en los últimos años le ha cogido el gusto a eso de comer fuera.  A su izquierda está sentada Soledad, su hija mayor, que con 81 años asegura que su madre está mejor que ella: “Yo tengo unos dolores en los hombros y la espalda, y estoy más o menos, pero ella no se queja de nada”. Su madre asiente con la cabeza “A mí no me duele nada”, dice con una vitalidad digna de admirar. “Nunca he tenido que llevar gafas, ni tengo azúcar, ni nada. Alguna vez he estado malilla, pero poca cosa”.

Una vida agitada

María nació en Tejeda el 5 de noviembre de 1911. Fue madre de cinco hijos, dos de ellos ya fallecidos. Se quedó viuda hace 28 años, cuando Francisco, su marido, falleció tras ser atropellado por un coche. A pesar de los baches que le ha puesto la vida, María siempre habla de lo positivo. Preguntada por cómo ha sido su vida, no se queja. “Yo he vivido bien. Lo importante es tomarse las cosas con tranquilidad y estar bien con todo el mundo”. 

Desde hace 5 años María vive con su hija Eva en el barrio teldense de Las Huesas. “Antes yo cuidaba a mis hijos y ahora me cuidan ellos a mí. En casa de mi hija Eva  estoy muy bien. Me cuidan mucho, me siento acompañada y estoy a gusto”, señala mientras bisnietos y tataranietos corretean por el restaurante.

 

El orgullo de la familia

Mientras María habla de lo bien que se encuentra, su familia continúa cenando. Con frecuencia, desde las diferentes mesas los comensales buscan con su mirada a la protagonista de la noche. Todos están pendientes de ella. Hijos/as, sobrinos/as, nietos/as… Es el orgullo de la familia. Lo denotan los ojos de cariño y ternura con los que la observan. Y el sentimiento es recíproco. Cada vez que se le acerca alguien, María siempre sonríe y presta atención a lo que le dicen.  Se confiesa feliz por verlos a todos reunidos: “Son tantos que es difícil verlos a todos juntos. Espero que el año que viene nos podamos reunir todos otra vez”, señala risueña. 

La noche avanza y a la fiesta de cumpleaños de María llega un grupo de Mariachis que hacen levantar de sus asientos a los invitados. El jolgorio alcanza su máxima expresión y la cumpleañera disfruta del momento. María sonríe y aplaude divertida al ritmo de “Tu retratito lo traigo en mi cartera”. La pregunta es inevitable: “¿Cómo lo hace usted para estar tan bien a su edad?” Y ella, muy rotunda, responde: “Yo, mayor, mayor, no soy”.

    what about this? what if you were to create a awesome headline?
    I ain’t saying your content is not solid., but suppose you added a title that makes people desire more?
    I mean María Sarmiento González: “Yo, mayor,mayor, no soy” – Noticias de San Mateo is kinda plain. You could
    glance at Yahoo’s front page and note how they create post headlines to
    grab people to open the links. You might add a related video or a related picture or two to get readers excited about everything’ve written. In my
    opinion, it might bring your posts a little livelier.

  8. Howdy, I do believe your blog could possibly be having browser
    compatibility issues. Whenever I look at your blog in Safari,
    it looks fine however, if opening in I.E., it’s got some overlapping issues.
    I simply wanted to give you a quick heads up!
    Other than that, wonderful website!

    a whole lot and don’t manage to get nearly
    anything done.

  13. Its like you learn my mind! You appear to grasp a lot approximately this,

  14. naturally like your web site however you need to test the spelling on quite a few
    of your posts. A number of them are rife with spelling issues and I to
    find it very bothersome to inform the truth then again I will definitely come again again.

  15. Starting an email newsletter can help convert website visitors into subscribers. After signing up for the email newsletter, you can chat and bring it to your website. If you’re interested in more ways to reach potential or existing customers, newsletters are an ideal way of sharing current news, tips, products, and services to a large audience. By leveraging print or email newsletters, you can achieve major business goals by increasing revenue or sales, website traffic, brand recognition, and more. Sending a newsletter is not mandatory for your web presence. You can manage your website and post regular updates in some sections on the site, or in a social media account. Nonetheless, a newsletter is one of the best ways to engage with your customers. It is more likely for people to read more about a new offer or open a link to discover more information on a particular topic if they receive a newsletter. Your email will stay in their mailbox even if they don’t read it right away. They will not be distracted by tens of other posts by people or groups, as often happens on social media.

    However, one of the most far-reaching services that most agencies overlook is email marketing. Due to its increasing benefits, lots of businesses today are leaning toward this service. This is why the demand for email marketing agencies is on the rise. When creating your email templates, consider the email categories and how you could bundle your email templates. These could be sold as one-off packages or as services. It wouldn’t be an exaggeration to say that MailChimp is among the most popular email marketing services on the web. This heavy hitter in the email game provides a full-featured marketing platform that can work well for all business owners. It’s accompanied by a website builder, hosting, and CRM features. Moreover, its design tools let you easily connect your store and transform your emails into scheduled social media posts.
