As you listen and read the news, do you ever think how nice it would be to hear or read good news or accounts of people doing something helpful? Be the Miracle: 50 Lessons for Making the Impossible Possible by Regina Brett fits the bill. The 50 lessons that Regina tells about are from her own experience or from people she has met in her years as a journalist. It was amazing to me how little things that we may think inconsequential, can really make a great difference in someone’s life. One day Regina stopped in an Ice Cream Shop to get directions, she met a young man scooping ice cream who wanted to be a neurosurgeon. He had been attending a prestigious school, but his family ran out of money. “When Regina called the school to check out his story, they were so glad to find him, they agreed to cover all his expenses.” When a neurosurgeon read the column Regina wrote about the young man, he offered him a chance to observe in surgery. And it all happened because Regina needed directions and took time to talk to a young man behind the ice cream counter. “George Bernard Shaw wrote that the great secret wasn’t about having good or bad manners, but having the same kind of manners for everyone.” You might be surprised at what miracles can happen when you take time to make them happen.
