“Miracles happen quietly every day – in an operating room, on a stormy sea, in a sudden appearance of a road side stranger. They are rarely tallied.” Mitch Albom
I’ve been on the receiving end of the operating room miracle, rescued from the stormy seas, and aided by many road side strangers.
But in the hustle of “today”, I sometimes forget the many miracles I’ve been afforded, and instead find myself focused on all that’s wrong with the world around me… the way people drive, inconsiderate actions of others, the fact that there’s no paper towels in the bathroom.
Henry David Thoreau said,
“It’s not what you look at that matters, it’s what you see.”
I want to be someone who sees miracles. All around me. Everyday. That’s what I’ll be looking for today.
