The Power of Mariachi: Reconciling a Love Affair

Me and my wife Irma have been married for about 28 years.

in 2007, I had a bleed in my brain and I was in the hospital for about a month. When i got home, some things seem different between me and my wife. i was out of work for a year because of my injury.

It seemed me and my wife were separating far apart from each other. She would come home late from her work and we would argue about things.

But one day -- on a Saturday -- it was her birthday.

i told her i would take her to breakfast and to be ready by 10 am.

When we were about to leave, mariachis walked in are front door and sang to her for one hour.

I surprised her; I had never done that for her.

She cried and told me how much she loved me. Ever since then, we been madly in love again.
