Miracle Monday

I've been avoiding this place. I see it around the corner and run the other way. It tries to catch my eye, but I fake a yawn and turn away like I don't see it there. Occasionally, I even pretend we're friends and I sit and chat, but at the last minute I make an excuse that I have to leave... oh the kids are crying or I left something on in the kitchen.

But it's Monday today. And at least today, I can focus on the miracles. Seriously, I need a miracle day. Just one day to remember that life has it's good moments, too. Otherwise, I start focusing on all the stuff that feels off... like my computer problems--darn, technology. :( Or the fact that I feel like an utter failure when it comes to buying b-day presents for my son [shouldn't I know what to buy a boy who is blind?! I birthed him, didn't I? I know what he likes!]. Like how I spend a nice quiet morning with my husband, only for us to find out that he didn't get the message about reporting two and half hours earlier than originally posted, and he might miss out on the schooling that he wants to do. :( Grrrr. And then, when I know it's not his fault to say in my head [and to him, actually], "I told you to carry that damn phone with you!!" You mght have only been a half an hour late if you hadn't left your phone upstairs!

See? See what I mean? No wonder I've been avoiding this place. I'm worried about scaring all my readers away. hahaha.

MIRACLE MONDAY, the reminder that my world is bigger than the annoyances of daily living.

Today i'll go bigger and celebrate my son who was born 6 years ago, yesterday.
When I spent weeks worried about hydrocephelas and mental retardation, shunts and surgeries, I was gifted a son who has no eye on the left and no sight on the right. He is smart. Soooo incredibly smart, he will someday do great things with his extraordinary capabilities.  Until then, he enjoys farting noises and peepee jokes. He loves to read and can tell a great joke. He gives warm hugs and loves just about everyone he meets.


  1. Thanks for sharing your Miracle Monday. I too, needed but was avoiding a reminder. We are so lucky to be given our little miracles that remind us and keep us in line as to the priorities of life. We are the fortunate ones that have been given a miracle to live with everyday. All the other stuff is just life, lol...sucky as it is, lol.

    Now, I'm inspired to get to writing. Thanks for sharing!

  2. You son sounds like a wonderful little man :-) Something always to be thankful for there. And a happy 6th birthday to him from the uk.

  3. What a great reminder. It IS easy to get bogged down in annoyances and oh my do we all have them. Sigh. But Sean you are a miracle and on your birthday just seeing your huge smile as your cousins sang to you over Skype reminded me of the important thing too - God really is Love and Joy lies in the simple pleasures of being loved and loving in return. Mwah. We love you all.

  4. Nice to see you back, I am new to your blog, and some how I feel very close, almost like a kindered spirit. I really like your writing,and am glad you invited us readers in your life.
    Colette to my friends :)

  5. Yes, miracles are all around us if we let them in! You're not alone in struggling with finding the perfect birthday gifts or being short with the husband! Enjoy the moments as they come :)
