Small miracles

Last Fri night I was in so much pain, I could not sleep, it was hard to edit cause it hurt so bad just to sit up. Normally editing distracts me from the pain, but this time the pain was so bad that it was distracting me from the editing. So I did something mindless and cleared out double files and pictures from my folders. But I was thinking how nice it would be to have a new book to read. Now I have plenty of books some I've read and some I haven't, but I wanted something new, something that I didn't have any idea what it was going to be about to distract me from my pain.
Next morning one of my friends who works at a book store called and she had gotten a copy of a new series from one of my favorite authors and all I had to do was come and pick it up. To me this could be serendipity or a blessing or a small miracle or just the kindness of a nice friend. It may not have been the big miracle of being completely healed but it did qualify as a small miracle to me to make my life more comfortable.
