Can I be the miracle of today? Not to be totally egocentric or anything but I think I did a little miracle for someone else today. There was a mother at a local play group that had a bit of a struggle with one of her children. Well when I got home I was really thinking about her and the situation. I had 2 options, pray for her and her family, or do something. I did. I sent her a message telling her that we all have those kind of days with our kids and that she was a great mom to great kids. Now I barely know this woman but from what I see of her I knew those two things about her. She messaged me back and thanked me for my kind words. Now I didn't do it for praise, I did it because I have had those days already in my short parenting life that I just wanted to cry and say "why is this so hard?" When you just want your kids to behave and they don't. So my miracle is that I put a smile on almost a stranger's face and hey maybe at the end of it all I might have a new friend, or if I don't that's okay too. The smile was worth the doing instead of praying today.
