Little Miracles

Today's Gospel (Mk 8:11-13) has a great messgae to all generations who need a "sign" to believe:

The Pharisees came forward and began to argue with Jesus,seeking from him a sign from heaven to test him.He sighed from the depth of his spirit and said,Why does this generation seek a sign?Amen, I say to you, no sign will be given to this generation.Then he left them, got into the boat again,and went off to the other shore.
I come from a generation used to not waiting for things. I want a chesseburger with fries, I go to a fast food store and get it. I want a song I just heard, I go to iTunes and download it. I want information on almost ANYTHING, I Google it, and find it. So I can see how it may be difficult for someone of my generation to believe in something they can see, look up, or download. everyone wants "proof".
Well, I say the proof is there, in what I call the Little Miracles of everyday life. We all have experienced them, we just have to be open to see what they really are.
Some people call them coincidences.
No such thing.
Chance happenings?
Little Miracles. For instance, I needed time today to catch up on office work. Guess what? We got a dusting of snow and school was cancelled. Uninterrupted time today (so, I'm bloging instead - that's not the point).
What are some Little Miracles you have experienced recently?

I think this was a little miracle. Because we were invited out to dinner one night, we met a Priest. Because of a remark that I just happened to make, Divine Providence came into play. As a result we have teaching Sisters' in our Catholic school. If we had not had that dinner, we would not see those Sisters walk into Church for Mass each day. To me this was a mini miracle.
