Everyday Miracles

If you think that you are an extraordinary person you are definitely right because every existence represents a miracle and every miracle is extraordinary by definition!”
~Mehmet Murat ildan

Nothing like pain, disappointment or misfortune to get your praying for miracles. Even in ordinary times I’ve prayed for miracles, big one, little ones, impossible ones. Miracles are like snowflakes; each miracle is unique in its own way. They’re as individual as the person praying for that miracle and we’re always looking for a miracle or looking for something extraordinary to happen in our lives. While we wait, a thousand other things are happening around us that go completely overlooked because they’re not significant enough, we see miracles as something extraordinary, mind-blowing and captivating.  We see them as something so rare, they only happen once in a life time and most often only to special people or those who are exceptionally faithful to God.

We all have our own definition of what a miracle is or what they should look like and while many wait to walk on water. Many are thankful for the miracle of waking up each morning. While many wait for angels to descend from heaven, others are thankful for the miracle of watching the sunrise.  I’ve learned to appreciate the miracles that are happening around me every day. So while you wait for that extraordinary something, that mind-blowing, captivating feat against law and nature I am grateful for the miracles of life that are constantly in motion.
