23. Miracles in Life

“There are only two ways to live your life.
One is as though nothing is a miracle. The other is as though everything is a miracle.”
…Albert Einstein

A Story shared by Thomas:

A certain company has a tradition of holding an annual party followed by a lottery.

The rules of the lottery draw are as follows: Each employee pays ten dollars as a fund. There are three hundred people in the company.

In other words, a total of three thousand dollars can be raised.  The winner will take the sum .

On the day of the lottery draw, the office was filled with a lively atmosphere.

Everyone wrote their names on the slips of paper and put them in the lottery box.

However, a young man hesitated when he wrote. 

Because he thought that the company’s cleaning aunt’s frail and sickly son was going to have an operation recently, but she did not have the money to pay for the operation, which made her very troubled.

So, even though he knew that the chance of winning was slim, with only 0.33% chance, the man wrote the name of the cleaner on the paper.

The tense moment came. The boss shuffled the lottery box, and finally drew out a note.

The man also kept praying in his heart: I hope the cleaning aunt can win the prize…Then the boss carefully announced the winner’s  Name, a miracle happened!

The winner turned out to be the cleaner!  Cheers broke out in the office, and the cleaning lady hurriedly came to the stage to accept the award.

She almost burst into tears and said : I am so lucky!  With this money, my son has hope!

At the beginning of the party, while thinking about this “Life’s miracle”, the man paced to the lottery box.

He took out a piece of paper and opened it casually. The name on it was also the name of Aunt Clean! 

The man was very surprised. He took out several pieces of paper one after another.

Although the handwriting on them was different, the names were all the same, all of them were the names of the cleaning aunt! 

The man’s eyes were red, and he clearly understood that there is a Life’s miracle in the world, but the miracle will not fall from the sky, but people are required to create it by themselves!


Life is a series of thousands of tiny miracles.. notice them
