Happiness Tip: No Two Miracles Alike

When I bought my Christmas stamps from the post office this year, I got a lovely surprise. The stamps are gorgeous, actual photos of four different snowflakes. A clever photographer developed a new method of capturing individual flakes and keeping them cold while he photographed them. So beautiful, and such a lovely reminder of the everyday miracles we experience. Just as no two snowflakes are alike, no two miracles are, either.

I believe in miracles, but the ones that are important to me don’t involve big, showy events. I like the everyday miracles: The food we eat becomes body cells, muscles, thoughts and even emotions. Our brains and nerves generate and conduct electricity to create our thoughts, ideas, mental habits and even our personalities. Our bodies can be wounded and somehow regenerate muscle, skin and blood to heal, often without a trace. The best miracle in my life is other people. They show up when I need them. They care about me. They often cause me to laugh or cry. They introduce me to new ideas, and new ways of looking at things. They bring everyday magic into our lives. We are surrounded by the wondrous every day, most of it unexplained as yet by science, and we so often fail to notice.

Seeds are miracles. From a tiny package, some so small you can hardly see them, plants and trees grow. Every seed contains in it all the DNA that creates the plants we eat, the flowers we enjoy, the trees that shade and feed us.

Each of us is also a miracle. We grow from tinier seeds than plants do, from a miracle that combines the DNA from each of our parents to create the unique miracle each of us becomes. And we pass the miracles on. Each time we are kind and loving, every time we help and care for one another, each time we have a new idea, or create something, we are participating in the larger miracles of life. We are the angels who bring the miracles to life. What an awesome, inspiring and joyous thing it is, this astounding life we get to be a part of.


ANGELS IN DISGUISE
Lyric: Tina Tessina
Music: Ron Creager
Through your busy Holidays you may not notice much
How many hands are giving and how many lives are touched
Turkey dinners, Meals on Wheels fill hearts and stomachs, too
Toys for Tots brings Christmas treats where hope is overdue

A solitary senior hesitates to cross the street
The kindness of a stranger's arm steadies her feet
A child, lost and frightened, and his frantic Mom
Are quickly reunited by a shopclerk's intercom

CHORUS: Wake up Christmas morning
open up your eyes
everywhere you look are
angels in disguise

Who's to say that Christmas
is the only day?
if you'll only let them
the Angels come to stay


Every thoughtful gesture, every selfless gift
Eases someone’s heartache, gives a needed lift
Ordinary people, even you and I
can be Angel agents, and allow our hearts to fly

BRIDGE: Was that little windfall in
your empty-pocket days
Really accidental, or did
Angels pave the way?

This holiday season, I wish you the joy of being part of the miracle, and being aware of it.

Re: Life Lessons

Hi Tina,
Great email. The last part reminds me of the movie The Secret. Have you seen it? All the best,
Nada
thank you, Nada. You’re not the first to recommend The Secret to me. I just got it.

Beautiful and powerful poem, Tina.
I do enjoy your newsletters.
Warm regards
Steve

Thank you, Steve.

I particularly liked and responded to this article, and the poem, and thank you for such an articulate and emotional Happiness Tip. I intend to share it with my wife and some close friends who will appreciate your words and feelings.
Charlie

thanks, Charlie. I hope your family and friends enjoy it.

Dear Tina,
Your words are lovely and truly meaningful. I am so glad that you've found happiness with Richard and, together, have made a lasting relationship. I, too, feel blessed, for this Saturday, Joel and I mark our 50th anniversary. The years have passed by, seemingly, in a blink. We have differences at times, but always work them out. I'm the one with a memory like an elephant, but
only recently have I realized that I have to let go of things that have angered or annoyed me.

I felt so sad for you when i read how you lost your family at such a young age. But I also
admire you tremendously for making your way in this world-perhaps lost at first-but once you
found yourself, look at what you've done for other people through your words, your books.

Thank you for sharing your poem and your thoughts. I do appreciate it very, very much.
I hope, one day in the near future, to meet you in person.
Hugs, Arline

Thanks so much, Arline, for sharing your own thoughts with me. And congratulations on your anniversary. 50 years is indeed a miracle.

Hi Tina,

I recognize that I've been at a crossroads of sorts for quite a stretch of time now. If I told you of the events of my life during the last five or six years, your jaw would likely drop, just as it has each time I've shared the details with those I know. Sitting here now, even I find much of it to be surreal.

I connect so well with what you've shared in your message this month and find that a profound internal awakening such as the one you describe has been my path as well. You've shared so many powerful statements, but probably one of the most important is this: "...the wisdom guiding each of us is available if we just listen and trust what we hear."

Thank you for trusting us with your personal experience and for bringing light into our world.
My best to you,
Tami

Thank you, Tami, and I wish you every good thing.

I am enjoying your newsletters so much..thank you. You are an enlightened lady and have truly found your purpose. As a favorite uncle of mine once said,"Adversity Builds Character.. Many of your clients have had lots of adversity..and have come through stronger, more peaceful and loving people...ready to serve that purpose..thank you for being there for all of us. and for helping us to discover our soul..love, donice

Yes, Donice, there is no shortage of character-building in life – but we who can help each other turn out to be the lucky ones. Thanks for your kindness.

Something about this months Happiness Tips has struck deeply into my heart. I have forwarded this to many people.........so many people can learn from your wisdom. I certainly can. I love looking forward to each months new inspirations from you. Thanks, Marlene

Marlene, I am so happy to have touched you. Thank you for letting me know.
