Do you believe in miracles?
“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.” ― Albert Einstein
I think I have posted that quote before, but it is one of my favorites. As you know, I am a very simple person, and I live a very simple life. I don’t like to read the paper, watch the news, or talk politics. I know I am taking a very “head in the sand” approach to life, but that is who I am. If I start thinking about the bad things in this world, I have a panic attack and I am no good to anyone. So I live my life in blissful ignorance.
Part of finding joy in simplicity, is also seeing miracles all around me. Seeing the hope and strength of a flower pushing up through the snow will make my heart sing. Watching the pure enthusiasm in a dog playing in the snow, can bring a smile to anyone. Listening to the wonder in a toddler ask “why?” for the thousandth time, makes make my soul giggle. Hearing the sound of my best friends voice brings sunshine to my life.
My friends, life is a miracle. The pure fact that we exist is a gift from God. So I hope that you see the miracles around you. And I hope that you remember to thank God for all those simple gifts.
