For our tribe of 27,158 busy people who share encouragement and gratitude.
Dec 6, 2010
I urge you to please notice when you are happy, and exclaim or murmur or
think at some point, “If this isn’t nice, I don’t know what is.”

People usually consider walking on water or in thin air a miracle. But I
think the real miracle is not to walk either on water or in thin air, but to
walk on earth. Every day we are engaged in a miracle which we don’t even
recognize: a blue sky, white clouds, green leaves, the black, curious eyes
of a child — our own two eyes. All is a miracle.

I’m sure that your life isn’t perfect right now, and there may be some big
or small annoyances you are dealing with today, but let me ask you this:
What is NICE for you right now?
What teeny miracle is helping make life
a little richer, saner, more bearable?
Savor the NICE in your life, and perhaps spend a minute or two creating
NICE for someone else..
