At least once, shouldn't everyone get their very own miracle? Like some really immense-amazing-astonishing epic-event-experience that alters-mend-transforms everything? A blockbuster moment?
That’d be cool. And to answer that question, yes. But no too. No.
Stop waiting for cloud 9. Because while you’re waiting, clouds 1-8 already drifted by. And look, there went another one.
Albert Einstein said, ““There are only two ways to live your life. One is as though nothing is a miracle. The other is as though everything is a miracle.” I completely agree. Sometimes every ugly once-in-a-while nothing much seems like a miracle to me. I admit it. But usually, I choose to choose the other way. I choose to see the wonder, the phenomenon, the divine, whatever you want to call it. I guess what I’m saying is marvel at the marvels or you’ll lose your marbles. Miracles are particularly easy to find if you decide to look for them. Some examples:
1. Grapes turn into wine. Miracle. (More like science but still.)
2. Grapes turn into raisins. Miracle. (Again, science, but still.)
3. Grapes. Miracle. (Boom.)
4. Most of the snow melts in January. Miracle. (Er, more like climate change but still.)
5. Your dental appointment is cancelled. Miracle. (Maybe a coincidence but still.)
6. Discover forgotten chocolate. Miracle. (Maybe just forgetful but still.)
7. Didn’t completely screw up your kids. Miracle of miracles!
8. People read this. Miracle. (Seriously.)
9. Air-conditioning. Miracle. (For those three weeks in June? Totally.)
10. Someone pretty and cool and pretty cool married you. Miracle. (Admit it.)
