I felt the need to post about ordinary miracles today. We had our 2nd large snow fall of the season yesterday amongst other ordinary things. I snapped a picture about an hour or so into the storm. Last night we took Scottie out for potty and was greeted by our neighbors dog who had gotten loose while clearing the snow from their driveway. It was pitch dark and we live in the woods where bad things can happen to house pets running in the night so I leash him up and return the not even 1 year-old bouncing Tigger dog to its home. He was all in his glory of having his rooming freedom and attention from new people…bouncy bouncy Tigger dog…for sure he thought this was all about play which gave me a good chuckle as our dog is a mature 13 years young and doesn’t bounce nearly as high as this pup! So we trudge our way through the 13″+ of snow and arrive at my neighbors drive where they’re feverishly working at clearing the snow. I could sense the frustration they had that their dog had gotten loose and inconvenienced me but quite the contrary, I was thankful to have found him and gave him a safe return home. Just another ordinary miracle right? This was no inconvenience to me, I feel a dogs life was saved, who knows what may have happened otherwise. I’d like to think someone would return the favor.
I found this song entitled “Ordinary Miracle” by Sarah Mclachlan featured in Charlotte’s Web. It’s a nice reflection on ordinary miracles. Take a listen to it . . . all I can say is “beautifully put”!
