Recently, I reviewed Can't Wait to get to Heaven by Fannie Flagg and I remembered after I wrote up the review that I wanted to add this quote from the book to my list. Then I thought it really belonged on this blog so I'll type it up here. I think you'll see why. :) A little while later, when Dorothy and Elner were outside on the front
porch having their coffee and cake, Elner sat looking out, amazed at the sight
before her. While she had been inside talking to Ernest, the sky had
turned an exquisite shade of aqua, a color Elner had never seen before in her
life, and the entire front yard was filled with flocks of beautiful pink
flamingos. Large blue swans with bright yellow eyes swam around her in a
pond that wound all around the house, while hundreds of multicolored birds flew
overhead. Elner said, "Don't you just love birds?"

There are two ways to live your life.
One is as though nothing is a miracle.
The other is as though everything is a miracle.
