I generally haven’t used the word “miracle” in my writing because it is so overused in today’s society. We see advertisements for “miracle” products, sports stories about “miracle” victories, and so on. It always struck me as kind of silly to describe ordinary things as miracles just because they were better than expected.

Lately I’ve been giving the word more thought, however. There’s probably something to be said for cultivating a mindset of expecting to find miracles in our everyday lives. Appreciating small moments of happiness in simple, ordinary events as if they were miracles can lead to a more hopeful, optimistic outlook—and then who knows, maybe something truly amazing will show up.

  1. Very well written Meg. One needs to be positive in every situation.

  2. Your nurturing is thought provoking, something for us to ponder awhile.
    Miracles can be everywhere … can’t they. It seems to be right in line with
    the word ‘Gratitude’. If we notice more we can be grateful more. Nicely thought out, Meg.
