It is the everyday miracles that have the greatest influence in our lives

A baby's first response to its parent's voice
The child that searches for you in the middle of the night after hearing a scary noise
Losing a first tooth
Finding your first Easter egg

A preschooler recognizing their name
Sitting on Granpa's lap playing a game

A caterpillar crawling slowly on the sidewalk
Later seeing it drift by as a butterfly

A father watching his child be born
Or hearing children's laughter in the distance as a loved one is mourned

Making a friend smile
Or just knowing when to let them cry

Being pushed on a swing
A favorite song to sing

Watching a bird take a bath in a puddle
Your dog eyeing the geese flying overhead

Blowing the candles of your birthday cake
Granny teaching you of the cookies to bake

Picking a flower, jumping in a pool, raking leaves, throwing a snowball
Feeling contentment at the end of the day

May we all take the time to witness the miracles that surround us everywhere we go
