“These people here believe in you to help them and I believe in you to spin miracles for them.” ~ Thorne Darktower, Noble Courage Chapter 6
Every day you are a witness to miracles. Love is a very special miracle, as are children, nature, life, and the family unit. Each of us holds the power to make miracles happen for the people we come in contact with on a daily basis. Holding the door for a stranger, a smile at a sad child, a bottle of water for a homeless vet. We all think so much about ourselves and how much we have to do in the day and forget to go out of our way to make a little magic for someone else.
One of the best miracles to bless my life was my little niece. She was born with Down’s Syndrome and she is one of the happiest people in the world. She is now nearing a year and a half in her young life and she lives all the way across the country from me, but one photo of her smile makes me smile. She makes miracles happen for me when I see her, when I think of her, when I remember holding her during a visit. She will never know how special she is to me, she could never understand.
Just like my little niece, we may never understand what one moment of kindness means to someone else. And even knowing that, we should strive to go out of our way to be less self absorbed and more involved in who we see before us, calling silently for help. One small gesture on your part could give that person hope.
I am not an overly religious person and it is not my intention to preach to anyone. It is just my observations in making miracles happen each day that makes me think that the world would be a better place if we all tried just a little harder to care, to have some compassion. Our world suffers greatly from a shortage of love and happiness.
