The Small Miracles

I have always been a lover of quotes, and this was taken in New York City’s Central Park a few years back during a Thanksgiving visit with a dear friend.

It was my first time to the city, so Central Park was a must-see sight. The park is sprinkled with lovely benches with dedication plaques.  A nice way to remember someone, and this particular one highlights what a miracle everyday is.

Another inspirational highlight in the park is the famous “Imagine” plaque, commemorating the late John Lennon, near the city street corner where he was shot.  The simple word set in stone is visited by many, and symbolizes the great things that can be achieved with the human imagination, and a vision for a better world.

Imagine if we treated each day as the miracle it is.  Pretty incredible, right?

Everyday is a new start, an open slate, and to breathe in crisp winter air (or warm, depending on where you maybe reading this from at the moment!), to think, enjoy, love….the list goes on and on.  Whatever the day brings, embrace it for the little miracle it is.

Well, what is stopping you?

Happy Thursday.

    1. Thanks for appreciating it and stopping by! My secret is I come across a quote I like, am drawn to it, and think of posting it. Then I think “that is kind of boring alone!” so I find a photo. That is my usual train of thought. But in this one, I was doing that, but came across the bench photo, and it was a quote and photo in one. Score! 😀
