The iPod contest
It was Christmas time and I had decided I wanted an iPod Touch but I didnt know how I was going to ask my father for one. I imagined that he asked me, “So, what do you want for Christmas?” And I answered, “An iPod Touch” He then replied “What, of course not! That thing must cost about $5000 pesos”. And then of course it really happened. So you can imagine, there was no gift for me on the Christmas Eve. I had already read about The Secret but I thought it wasnt true.
Well, a few weeks later I discovered that an important University here in Mexico was running a short tale contest and giving awards for the first three winners. It was a scholarship to study in that University, a TV screen for the first winner, a Blu-ray disc for the second winner, and you guessed it, an IPOD TOUCH for the third winner. So I send my short tale and every day I imagined either myself playing with my iPod, or my name on the winners list, and I felt really happy.
Finally on the Friday the results were given, I arrived home and asked my grandmother, “Grandma, did I receive any phone calls?” and she answered, “Yes you did. A man called and said you have won a scholarship and another thing I didnt understand.” I was so happy! I ran to my computer and checked the winners list online, my name was on it!!!! I was the third winner!! The iPod was mine!!!
I write this with so much happiness. Thank you God for my faith, and thank all The Secret stuff!!! Thanks a lot!!!
