“You will when you believe.” So runs a line from Miracles.
This song hails from the soundtrack of the Prince of Egypt, a Disney animated film.
One can describe miracles as inexplicable, random occurrences. Rather, these little happenings mold each day.
Furthermore, these common, everyday occurrences may not have any obvious consequence. Therefore, people cherish, yet neglect them. Though unnoticeable, these minor events have an impact.
So saying, I offer thanks for the blessings that complete my existence today.
Little Miracles This Week
The Miracle of life is profound, complex and most importantly, relieving. Tumors developed in my brain 24 years ago, and doctors removed them after several rounds of surgical treatments. Although my executive functions aren’t as dynamic as they were before, I’m thankful for the chances to become a teacher and freelance writer. I’m grateful to shape in the world in my little way.
Of course, my dogs Misty and Cloudy make this list of miracles. Misty, in particular, is a 16-year-old miracle. She went through liver operations, epilepsy, and bumps to the head, and is walking about as if they never happened. She is ever the quiet, sturdy companion.
Another miracle is, naturally, my husband. A resilient man, Kelvin’s steadiness helped me to make it through many dry periods over the past 16 years. We have stayed together despite tough challenges, and I can say that we have conquered the mire along the way.
I’m also grateful for the miracle of my parents. My relationship with them isn’t as stable as I’d like it, but I’m grateful for the kindness they’ve extended to me throughout the years. It’s that compassion which helped me overcome countless obstacles.
Finally, I’m grateful for the miracle of my parents-in-law. Though they are of an entirely different background from myself, we’ve come to understand one another over the years. Their kindness and capacity for forgiveness impress me.
Let’s give thanks for the little miracles that take place in our lives each day.
Life’s newest grace
That fills the world with goodness and
