[I posted this on Facebook to share with the world so I am sharing it here, too. Another associated blog that I wrote last year is Master Number 33 by Wayne T. Dowdy. Though I do acknowledge that I attend Twelve Step programs, I do not represent any such programs. I am simply a person who loves to show others that miracles do happen, one day at a time.]
April 5th, 1995, was the last day I used a mind-altering substance, the day a true miracle occurred since I have remained drug and alcohol free ever since. Someone once said that if I ever decided to play the lottery that I should play it on April 5th (I stopped smoking 9-years later on that day, too).
Driving to work in the rain that morning, about ten yards in front of me, a car in the right lane decided to cut across the left lane to make a left turn (from the right lane). I swerved sharply to avoid being hit in the right side of my car.
Another miracle occurred on that day when I avoided a collision. I didn’t even blow the horn, just kept on driving to my destination and thanking God for His continued protection of me.
Before the night was over, eBay notified me that my Peter Rabbit collection sold (the first item that I had listed). I shipped it today and have maintained my Five Star Rating.
The moral of the story is that miracles do happen, and even though I refuse to see myself as a miracle, I do acknowledge that I am evidence that miracles do happen. I hope that a miracle happens in each of your lives, every day, as they do in mine when I live to see another day with all body parts intact and still working.
