“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.
“I am a warrior. I fight to keep you safe and now I fight to keep her safe as well. I need nothing more than your graciousness, m’lord. I have no need for land, I am free, you supply me with coin, and I have position. I am happy.” ~ Cappy, Noble Courage Chapter 5
Sometimes we need to take a step back and think of what we are most thankful for in our lives. They may not always be what we want to have, but if our needs are met, we have no grounds to complain. Especially if we aren’t working towards fixing what we don’t like by ourselves. Life is ever changing. Will it matter what material things we posess when we pass away? Probably not. Be thankful for what you have or do something about it so you can be.
I find that I get lost in the sadness of children flying the nest or not having my home be just the way I’d like it to be. However, I love having the rest of my loving family around me, I have my talents, I have a roof over my head, and I have food in my belly. Things could be so much worse. I love what I have.
My amazing artist, Dan RonQuillo from RonComp Technologies, has redesigned my cover for Noble Courage so I can put it up in Kindle’s eBook program. I was never happy with the cover my publisher slapped on there and am so overjoyed to have something that is a better fit! Dan has also designed my covers for Tears of Penance, Salvation of the Forgotten, and an eBook version of The Price of Power. There are photos on my website that he doctored for me from a photoshoot of a cast of characters as well. I sure appreciate this guy!! 🙂
“That is proper etiquette, is it not? To beg forgiveness of those we wrong?”
~ Aspen Tiller, Noble Courage Chapter 3
This is one step in relationships that often gets neglected. Asking for forgiveness is an important part of proper healing. However, many times the one doing the wrong cannot swallow their pride and admit that they have done wrong. When anyone asks you for forgiveness, dig deep within your heart and try to find it in you to accept. It took a lot for them to come to you in the first place.
If we all made more of a practice of telling someone how sorry we are, perhaps there would be fewer broken families or children that grow up holding a grudge and spend their lives angry. And although there are some things that can’t be worked out, many can and just aren’t. Be an angel to someone else. Guide them to a path where they too can find your degree of happiness, self esteem, or sucess. You will feel all the better for it!
I love my family dearly. My children are my life and my husband is my prince. We are a blended family and hit speed bumps along the way all the time. It is the power of “Oh man, I am really sorry!” that helps to keep us together. There are times when it is inadvertent that we offend someone, and times when it is quite intentional. But the elelment of asking someone to forgive them and start again is key to our survival! lol
It is about time that I got with it and made a blog. This will be a fun ride for us all. My name is Daisha Marie Korth, I write books for everyone to read.
