What exactly is a miracle?
When I don't really think about it - and I usually don't - I'd think of a miracle as something huge, something completely out of the ordinairy, something that can only be explained by divine intervention. But then, like now, when I do try to think about it, suddenly every single little thing seems a miracle.
A bird, and the sky.
This computer, my eyes.
My hands typing these words.
A sound, and the fact that I can hear it.
A progression of sounds, making a song.
The universe, a grain of sand.
Love. A man, a woman.
A child. Oh my God. A child!
I'm going to be a father.
I'm not easily impressed, but this has got me stunned.
Never have I been more afraid.
Never have I been more hopeful.
Never have I realised the miracle of life as much as right here, right now.
