When our relationship goes through very difficult times, I might despair that things are never going to work out the way I want. Perhaps an affair has struck, or a separation, or severe money or health problems have surfaced. At such times, I may hope for a miracle, while at the same time being pessimistic about one occurring.
If I look at how a large snowball is formed, I can see that its made up of a lot of small snowflakes. Maybe some miracles are made up of a lot of small ones, in much the same way. Maybe its only by recognizing the small miracles when they happen that we find the "big" one.
I find such small miracles when I look for positive things in our lives that happen unexpectedly. For example, if we are struggling with a separation, and I get an unexpected hug from my SO, maybe that is a small miracle. If were dealing with an affair, and my SO shares some feelings they never shared so openly before, maybe that is a small miracle. Is my life really void of miracles, or have I been missing ones occurring right under my nose?
Miracles happen only to those that believe in them. - French Proverb
