Ordinary Miracles

Today I wish you a day of ordinary miracles.

  • A fresh pot of coffee you didn't make yourself...
  • An unexpected phone call from an old friend....
  • Green stoplights on your way to work....
  • The fastest line at the grocery store....
  • A good sing-along song on the radio...

  • Your keys found right where you left them.
  • A hand-written letter from a friend in your mailbox...

These "ordinary miracles" came in an email pass-this-on attachment.  They made me think of all the OTHER "ordinary miracles" that I often take for granted.  Things like...

  • A mislaid cell phone located finally...oddly enough right where I left IT, too!
  • Coffee on sale at the grocery when I need it...
  • Ditto for toilet paper!
  • Willpower.  Click here for details.
What would YOU add to the list?


  1. Much needed rain
    Able to get my contacts in without a hitch this morning
    Cooler temperatures
    Catching glimpes of hummingbirds at the feeders

  2. A clear, beautiful sky to look at in wonder before going to bed.

    Beautiful flowers that are on sale for me!

    Yard art on sale too.

  3. Oh, these are so perfect! I would add "A hug from someone you thought had forgotten you."

  4. A miraculous extra hour in the day.

    My son remembering to close the cupboard doors as he runs through the house.

    Five consequetive rows of knitting without a glitch.

    Dinner tonight... that I didn't prepare! :)
