There is an answer in every experienced tragedy; we need only be willing to find the question. First we must put aside: anger, self-pity, doubt, public opinion, and the loss of what could have been. Once the question is found, its answer will bring strength and the ability to move forward. Faith brings hope, hope brings possibility, and possibility brings achievement. All achievements are little miracles because of the hurdles overcome to get there.
In How Nicholas Became Santa Claus, Nicholas the infant had to deal with the trials of life. Life forced the child to choose between giving in or to fight without being broken in spirit. To be successful even though the people upon whom you have depended all through life thus far are no longer present. Finding a way to triumph over seemingly overwhelming odds with a smile on your face and a laugh in your belly is truly a gift. Everyone is given this gift on a daily basis. Recognizing our triumphs as gifts is part of the magic of being Human. Have you found the gift you were given today? Have you found your magic?
