I received a call from a local newspaper. They asked me to bring my texts, and I got very excited. I took all my stories and poems and went to the town on my bike. But on my way there a strong wind blew in my face, and all my papers flew away. I felt like the work of few years of my life had gone. But with help of Saint Barbara I was able to pick up everything, and even my doggy helped me. It was a real miracle that I didn’t lose not one list. I thank the saint.

My mother and my aunt taught my son Carlitos to embroider. He created exquisite embroideries and was very enthusiastic about it. I was distressed and asked the Virgin of the Rosary to make so that my boy wouldn’t enjoy embroidery so much because if his father, who is a really macho, had found out that his son loved doing the women’s work he would’ve been furious. Thanks to the Virgin his cousin Luis taught my son to ride a bicycle. Carlitos enjoyed it so much, he forgot about embroideries.

October 22, by a miracle, a really nice bike appeared near my door. I thank for this miracle from the bottom of my heart because it made me so happy.

I married a nerd. I would have never thought that our life turned out to be so fascinating. I thank Saint Anthony for giving me such a clever husband. Every day with him is a surprise. For example, he invented a helicopter-bicycle, which we ride flying over the town and fields. We are very happy together.

My bicycle was a part of my life. But my wife wasn’t happy about me dedicating so many time to it. She even kicked the bicycle. I thank the Virgin of Guadalupe for my wife finally understood that, although I can’t live without my bicycle, I love her much more. She doesn’t get angry anymore.
