Miracles

     Miracles are little things that happen everyday. Most of the time we don't take the time to see them. In the previous post, I told you about a miravle that happened to me when our house burned down. I would like to share another miracle with you.
     
     My daughter, Sarah, who is now 10 is a miracle. When I was in college I was taking the Depo shot. I was on the second shot and went in to get my third when I found out I was pregnant. "Oh shit." was my first reaction. "There is no way," was my second. I thought long and hard about all of this. I even remember having dreams about her when I was three months along. I knew what she looked like and even what she was going to be like. The only thing I can think to say about this, is that I knew her soul before she was even born. 

      As if getting pregnant while I was on the shot wasn't enough of a miracle, Sarah was born a month premature with the cord wrapped around her neck. She came so fast, the doctor didn't have time to get there. The nurse, I'll never forget her name, Nurse Michelle Lawrance, went from having 2 normal arms and hands like the rest of us, to 8 arms. She was doing everything all at once. She was on the phone while resuscitating Sarah, cutting the cord and well, you get the picture. Panic set in. I was sure that she was not going to make it. I cried in my pillow and prayed to God. "Please let her live. I want her so bad," I said.

      A couple seconds later, but to me it seemed like forever, Sarah took her first breath and screamed. It was the most wonderful sound I had ever heard. Today, she is 10 years old. She had long beautiful copper colored golden red hair with freckles. She loves to dance and sing. She loves to make people smile and she is a perfectionist when it comes to her school work.
 
      Her soul is beautiful. I knew her before she was born.

      I bet your wondering why I told this story. The truth is that there are so many miracles around us that happen everyday. We just don't know about them. When the sun comes up and we have all had a good night sleep, that is a miracle. When the mail comes on time and there isn't a bill in it, that's a miracle.

      As for me, I look at everything in my life and wonder how I ended up so lucky. I may not be rich, but...then again, maybe I am. I would love to hear about the miracles in your life. We all need a little inspiration. What better way to start the day then by sharing a good thing that you noticed?

Hugs to all!!

Joann, I LOVE THIS!!! <3 I have tears of joy in my eyes from this blog entry. :) Very touching, and SO very true. Thank-you so much for sharing this miracle with the world. :) I know what you speak of where knowing your daughter soul before she was born. A past life, I think the 2 of you had shared. She was familiar, and you'd recognized here in a dream months before she came into this this new life.

I have many miracles I've experienced to share, and the 1 that stands out the most was a prayer answered in the time I was most desperate and selfless. I'd done everything I'd known to do, suggested to me, and offered to me where my youngest son was concerned. We'd been through so many difficulties, and I wasn't about to give up on him. An angel came to us, and showed "herself to us in a photo I'd taken in my home shortly after my prayer for help. I immediately knew my prayer was heard and answered. A short time later, my prayer was fulfilled. God Bless, and I thank-you ever so much. <3
Lots Of Love,

That is an interesting story about your daughter. I had a vision of my daughter a few years before she was born. She was running down the hall with long blonde hair. I had the vision several times - and years later she was born...and she has long blonde hair.

I think it is easy to lose sight of the little miracles that we experience every day. Thank you for the post, and it has definitely reminded me to give thanks for the miracles that are so often overlooked.
