My daughter Susana loved when I was reading stories to her. She loved fairy tales so much, she learned to read sooner than her sisters to be able to read them by herself. When I got sick, she read tales to me, and it was wonderful. I thank the Virgin of Zapopan for such a clever and caring daughter.
