It is the birthday of my dear Marcus, who turns 11 today. And it is the birthday of my good friend, Maggie who is 61. Both of these cherished people have had close calls - they might not have been here to celebrate this day. That they are, feels miraculous.

Over a long period of time I have come to appreciate that we are constantly surrounded by miracles if we only choose to see them. Albert Einstein said "There are two ways to live your life: one is as though nothing is a miracle; the other is as though everything is a miracle." I go for a walk, I look out the window, I spend time in silence - and I feel overwhelmed with gratitude.
Lately, I've been listening to a lot of Peter Mayer's music. This one feels just right for today.
How about you? What quietly or outrageously wondrous things are you experiencing?
