a week of ordinary miracles, day 1

an amazing sky

As promised, I have an ordinary miracle to share.

We went shopping yesterday to look for an Easter outfit for Sloane.  I didn't want to schlep my purse the whole time - that sucker gets heavy.  So, I put my wallet in my pocket and we shopped for several hours.  At the end of our day, I realized that I had lost my wallet somewhere along the way.  We spent nearly an hour revisiting each store to look around and ask about my wallet.  No luck.  My beautiful ostrich skin wallet that was a gift from my Dad - gone.  Everything in it - gone.  Me?  Nearly in tears.

Today I was able to go to Macy's and pick up the wallet some kind soul had turned it in.  Not a single thing was missing.  My ordinary miracle?  The integrity of strangers and a family who never teases or gets frustrated when I make stupid mistakes.

What an excellent miracle. I was just telling my daughter today how many times I have been rescued by the kindness of strangers!
