QOTD #21 - On the miracle of today

"You can become blind by seeing each day as a similar one. Each day is a different one, each day brings a miracle of its own. It's just a matter of paying attention to this miracle."
Your turn: What miracle will cross your path today?

very wise and truthful words....I received a surprise "pay it forward" treat yesterday...it seems much like (random act of kindness) but it certainly is taking over a lot around here lately.....imagine if each one of us keeps going without breaking the chain....!..what a wonderful world for all......

Already crossed. I missed 5 out of 8 periods of class legitimately. Two cuz I was on duty at the Initiation ceremony of the new little tots in our school's kindergarten division, and 3 cuz we School Cabinet members were rehearsing for the Swearing-In Ceremony :D

I know there will be one crossing my path today and it will be a miracle if I'm paying enough attention to witness it. I'll try!
Thanks for the reminder to keep my eyes open.

Oh yes...todays miracle:

Walking along the pavement, deeply into a book, ears alert to nearby traffic, eyes alert to swishingpast cyclists....my foot hesitates less than an inch away from the pavement as I suddenly lurch sideways and come to a halt against a fence.

Just behind me, on the pavement, sat The Largest reason why our local council fines dog walkers for not clearing up after their dog!

Missed. Narrowly missed. I would have had to turn back. And throw away my shoes. ((shudder))

I have not been so deeply grateful...for quite some time!
