    Right now, this day with sparkling fresh snow, dimming the noises. The bunch of flowers right in front of me, my coffee, in fact all which is perceived around. Pure wonder.

    Our first real snow of the season is beautiful. I had a nice drive into work with a pretty sunrise with lots of pink/orange colors in the sky and the snow glistening as the sun rose over the fields. I do love the 4 seasons, winter the least but I do love the snow how it cleanses the earth.

    I am about to go down to the beach and swim in the never-ending waves.
    I know the waves are physics… I consider the waves and how they formed and physics miracles.
    Have a great day everyone!!

    I am experiencing my winter travel right now. We are in S.C. near Columbia for 2 more days. The weather is a bit cold and gray 45 degrees…but I have the miracle of a lake next to my campsite…and the birds and squirrels…and later this afternoon…I know I will get to see an armadillo..all miracles of this great creation…and me! Surely, my life, my being is indeed a miracle. So happy to be here today.

    Sitting here in my warm little house, on
    this cold January morning, watching
    the rising sun, light up the clouds for
    another beautiful display of colors.
    The leaf bare trees silhouetted against
    the colorful sky are now being lit up
    In flaming reds and oranges as the low
    sun hits them. Birds waking up and
    starting their day. And it all starts again.
    I start again. Another breath. Another

    Thich Nhat Hanh in the book Your True Home said, “Around us, life bursts forth with miracles — a glass of water, a ray of sunshine, a leaf, a caterpillar, a flower, laughter, raindrops. If you live in awareness, it is easy to see miracles everywhere. Each human being is a multiplicity of miracles. Eyes that see thousands of colors, shapes and forms; ears that hear a bee flying or a thunderclap; a brain that ponders a speck of dust as easily as the entire cosmos; a heart that beats in rhythm with the heartbeat of all beings. When we are tired and discouraged by life’s daily struggles, we may not notice these miracles, but they are always there.”

    I’m extremely grateful to have been given this day. Life itself is a miracle and a mystery. The problem is we often focus on the mystery and forget the miracle!

    I am experiencing the miracle of healing. Today is 2 months since my Eczema attack began and I am believing that I am healing every day and that the healing has begun inside and will manifest outside very soon. I’ve mentioned before that I was diagnosed with an auto-immune condition at 8 years and in addition to a lot of body scarring and muscle reduction, the doctors told my parents I had 1 year to live. I will be 50 years this year and have a full life with a wonderful husband, son, career (though I recently lost my job), friends, family, home. I have been witnessing the miracle of my life, of my being alive well past the timeframe I was initially given. My current eczema is just a small small issue in the overall miracle that is my life.

    Watching the sun slowly melt ice crystals on the trees outside. It looks like a momentary Wonderland.

    Initially, I thought, my breath. And then quickly, I thought my entire body. And then all the other life forms in my life. I thought to myself, today, I want to remember I am amongst miracles constantly.

    I love when the question brings me into awareness of something that I was disconnected from. I’m gazing out the bedroom window. I have a beautiful balcony that overlooks my wooded yard. It’s so quiet right now. It’s a Monday, but you can just feel the tingling of people beginning to wake up. I can hear cars a few miles away on the road. And just the first tinge of pink in the sky. It’s an east facing window. So now I’m gonna situate myself here and enjoy a sunrise. Every single sunrise is a miracle.

    My own presence in this very moment. I have been bestowed great fortune despite the self-sabotaging, (therapy parlance) behavior I have practiced throughout certain times of my life. I am grateful.
