To me there are miracles all around. Not supernatural miracles, but natural ones. Some people feel that science takes the wonder and mystery out of the world. I disagree. To me, the more I learn about how the natural world works, the more miraculous it is.
As our region emerges from the nastiest winter in the past 18 years (since we have lived here), instead of whining and complaining, the plants and animals just go about their business, doing little miracles.
It's a miracle that:
|…there are daffodils in the blink of an eye once the sun melts the snow and ice...|
|…and little irises too, popping up out of nowhere...|
|… pansies actually survived many single-digit nights buried under ice, blooms and all...|
|…and the birds did too! Now they're everywhere, courting with their funny dances, building nests, fattening up.|

"Dogs really ARE miracles with paws!"
