Which came first? The miracle or the egg?
“Things that are impossible are everyday experiences when you live in advanced states of mind, when you live in a world of constant miraculous awareness.—Rama
When I was a kid, I collected napkins. Now that I’m a bit (a lot!!!) older, I collect hats (which have turned out to be very useful during the pandemic), quotes and miracle stories.
The last predilection is especially easy. All I have to do is open my inbox.
When I can, I like to share inbox miracles here on the blog because well, it allows me to live, as the above quote suggests, in a world of miraculous awareness. Why would I want to live anywhere else?
Here’s a fun one that came in this week:
“I’m having the most amazing experience, daily. See, I raise English Labradors as a hobby (they’re my kids), and every week everybody gets a scrambled egg. Plus, I have a Mama Bear with puppies, so she gets scrambled eggs with ham and cheese every morning with her kibble.
“Enter the pandemic. Eggs grew scarce. I reached out to folks I knew had chickens and could get some, but not enough.
“So I asked the Universe for another stream to get fresh eggs.
“The very next day, a chicken flew into my front yard. I live in the country, and the yard is fenced, so she felt perfectly safe from predators, etc. But in nearly 20 years of living here, nothing like this has ever happened. I feed her but she prefers the free range.
“Long story short, Matilda lays me a fresh green egg every morning.
“I know, folks could say well that’s not so out of the realm of possibilities. And they’re right. It’s not, but I’ve lived here nearly 20 years . . .
“And the kicker? She faithfully lays that egg on my front-porch swing. Literally two feet from my front door. Every single morning.
“All I had to do was ask.”
