An "Extra Strong Pill" from Grandad and Nanna
I was racing on my bike from school where I had just delivered Andrew shortly before 9 a.m., back to my daughter's boyfriend's flat, having received a mobile phone call from my daughter Valentina to say a domestic crisis had arisen.

I had just become homeless and was staying at the Municipal Hostel. My daughter's boyfriend was storing my personal possessions for me in his flat, and I was staying there during the day, since the hostel bedrooms were only open at night-time. The domestic crisis arose because it was taking me some time to learn the "house rules" of the flat, and consequently I was upsetting my daughter Valentina's boyfriend.
As I raced along on my bike through the narrow streets of the Old Town, a 5-cent coin appeared in the usual place, under my front bike tyre. I had arranged to meet Val outside the flat to discuss the problem and was in such a hurry to get there that I hardly had time to think about the coin -- I simply jumped off my bike, grabbed it, put it in my bum bag and carried on. When I saw it lying there though, I recognized it immediately as a sign that Grandad and Nanna were right by my side in this miniature crisis. The coin, being 5 cents, was not the usual one-cent coin, and as soon as I saw it the thought flashed into my mind that this was an "extra strong dose" (five times the usual "strength" -- that is, value of coin) and its purpose was to act as a tranquillizer for me in this emergency, as well as to let me know once more that I was surrounded by unconditional love.
The heavy grey clouds of the situation are now beginning to disperse, leaving the way clear for us to begin to live harmoniously together, and enjoy life... that is what I hope for... Farewell for now!
