Random Acts of Kindness




Here's a feel good post for today. My friends Sarah recently "tagged" me to post a Random Acts of Kindness thread - a chance to show gratitude. I happened to have heard a song on the radio today and seemed to really sum up what I was feeling. I wish I could play it for everyone to hear. It's a beautiful very moving song by Sarah Mclachlan.




Ordinary Miracles





It's not that usual when everything is beautiful


It's just another ordinary miracle today




The sky knows when its time to snow


You don't need to teach a seed to grow


It's just another ordinary miracle today




Life is like a gift they say


Wrapped up for you everyday


Open up and find a way


To give some of your own




Isn't it remarkable'


Like every time a raindrop falls


It's just another ordinary miracle today




Birds in winter have their fling


And always make it home by spring


It's just another ordinary miracle today




When you wake up everyday


Please don't throw your dreams away


Hold them close to your heart


Cause we are all a part


Of the ordinary miracle




Ordinary miracle


Do you want to see a miracle'




Its seems so exceptional


Things just work out after all


It's just another ordinary miracle today




The sun comes up and shines so bright


It disappears again at night


It's just another ordinary miracle today




It's just another ordinary miracle today




It's great to reflect on your blessings and all that each of us truly has. All the material things we have been blessed with, friends, family, happiness, sadness, trials that have made us grow and become stronger, the beauty of nature all around us. The new buds in spring, a cleansing rain, the soft falling snow, the sunrise and sunset each day. I could go on and on. Thank you sarah for giving me the gift of reflection this day. I'd like to share a few photos like will hopefully speak to you in their own way and give you some peace inside as you take a moment to contemplate the random acts of kindness you have recieved today. You may have just been someone else's ordinary miracle and you didn't even know it.
