Yes I do, I really do still believe…Miracles can happen! What a very odd title you may be thinking. Well, probably not if you are among the kind readers who know this part of the twinship of Gabby and Autumn. I’m the Gabby part of the twins, I am perhaps the quirky one with posts having some very unusual titles from time to time.. Autumn is the weaver of magic, love and just awesome poetry.Oops, I have to interrupt myself with a newsflash from Autumn… That Twinnie insists I label her as quirky, too! Well, she insisted so nicely, there you have it!
I digress so easily, and no Autumn doesn’t do it as nearly as often as I do. Back to the miracle thing, I still believe in miracles even after all that life has handed me so far. A few miracles I was hoping and praying for weren’t meant to be, but I can honestly say I still believe and that’s a positive thing.
The kind readers who know this story already, I will make this short as not to be a bit of a bore. Evil cancer, in the form of Multiple Myeloma hit both my husband Dave and our Dad. The same exact cancer, the Multiple Myeloma Foundation said it was a first of this sort of thing. They died 40 days apart, was I wanting and praying for a miracle for both of them? Of course I was, along with tons of family and friends, etc. Did it shake my faith, did I turn my back on God? NO, that’s all as strong as ever and with the Divine Order of things, it was all meant to be and I don’t question these things. They each had their small miracles, Dad and Dave both lived longer than doctors predicted and they both bounced back from several horrible setbacks. It sounds strange, but yes, they were miracles. I survived the horrendous grief from the loss of them both, I stayed sane. So did our Mom, our family, that is also a miracle.
I looked out my window on this lovely spring day and saw the miracle of sun shining brightly, birds chirping among my trees. It had been raining and dreary the last few days and Wow! Just an all around beautiful sight, I look for simple things as my miracles and blessings. I will keep looking for miracles, I have already been a witness to several of them. How about all of you kind readers, do you look for miracles? I hope so, they are all over the place…Just look closely, very closely! Even the smallest, tiniest thing can turn out to be a miracle for you, keep believing I say and never stop looking…You don’t want to miss it! 🙂
Yes, I’m quirky 🙂 well, it’s wonderful that you still believe in miracles, that was totally beyond a night mare with Dave and Dad passing away of the same evil cancer and so close together. I’m happy you still believe, twinnie 🙂 TF ❤
Amen and amen, have had a few in my life and I thank God for them. God bless!
I am so happy you have had miracles happen, too and Thank God always for them! 🙂 God Bless You, too and thanks so much for sharing your thoughts. 🙂
That is a comfort, you are quirky right along with me Twinnie! 🙂 I will always believe in miracles, big or small and we all should. It was the worst thing ever having Dad and Dave have the same evil cancer and head off to Heaven so close. I am happy I stayed sane, you did and Mom did, too…We have to keep believing! 🙂 TF ❤
Both your Dad and Dave filled your life with so much love and beautiful memories…..yes Miracles do happen…isnt is a miracle that every time we think of a near and dear one, it brings back such fond memories.. 🙂
you have been so brave and lovely Gabby, not letting the loss let you down instead focusing on what gift it has been knowing them so well….
love ya sista 🙂
Miracles are everywhere and in so many forms….so agree with you Girls 🙂
loved the post 🙂
Thank you so much Soma, for loving this post and all your wonderful and kind words, too! 🙂 It’s so true about Dad and Dave filling my life with the beautiful memories. Miracles really are everywhere, I’m so happy you are agreeing but I think I knew what your thoughts would be on this one Soma. You are such a soul sister, I just had a feeling! 🙂 Love and Hugs 🙂
Gabby miracles still happen, they really do! I have been the recipient of several! Keep the faith! Much love!
That is so wonderful to know Wendell, I am happy you have been the recipient of several miracles! Always keeping the faith and love back to you! 🙂
we are always surrounded by miracles…just that sometimes our mind doesn’ t believe them..
That is such a good way to say it…Sometimes our mind doesn’t want to believe, even when we are surrounded by miracles! Thank you so much for adding that thought! 🙂
Me, too! Remembering how sick I was, I might be one of them — Mom says I am! 😎 (But then again, she’s my mom!) 😎
You really did have some very bad times with your health Judith. I agree with your Mom, I think you are a miracle, too! 🙂
From one quirkie to another. Isn’t it a wonderful way to be? Keep witnessing those miracles and let us know that we may believe as well.
Glad to hear you are a quirkie, too and it really is a wonderful way to be! 🙂 I am so tuned in to looking for the miracles and I am hoping everyone keeps believing, too! 🙂
as do I 🙂
Yes, miracles do happen!!!! You are right, I still believe in miracles too…
Best wishes and lots of love to you and your family!!!! ❤ 🙂
I am happy, you believe in miracles, too! 🙂 Thanks so much for your good wishes and love to me and the family. You are so kind and thoughtful Ela! Love and best wishes right back to you. 🙂 ❤
Thank you Gabby, you are a true Angel!!!! :)<
That really is the sweetest thing of you to say Ela! 🙂 My husband Dave always called me “His Angel”, but I was and still am, just being me! 🙂
Well, you are forever his Angel and he is forever your Angel too!!! Love is stronger than life and death…
I have lost myself many loved ones, but in fact I really feel that they are always with me and protect me…
He is always with you, watching over you Gabby… 🙂
Lots of love and many hugs!!!! >:)<
That is so very true Ela, Dave and me will always be each other’s angels. Love is stronger than life and death I do agree with you on that. Oh, I am so sorry to hear about you losing many of your loved ones…They really are around us, I know it and believe it, too. Thanks for sharing that with me, I know it’s ever so true and Dave is always watching over me. Our loved ones do get to pop in and check up on us, that really is a comfort. Lots of love and many hugs back to you! 🙂
I so love the title of this post Gabby, still actually reading the post! I also believe, its good to never give up even when things don’t go our way! God Bless you for such lovely post! 🙂
Thank you PJ for loving this post, title and all! 🙂 It really is so true, we have to keep believing and never give up. Those miracles are just waiting to happen! God Bless you, too 🙂 Hugs
Gabby, the fact that you share such uplifting and cheery posts, after what you’ve been through, is a miracle in itself! They do come in many ways, shapes and forms and if we’re open to them, we’ll see them…I’ve had a few, too, and will continue to believe. Keep the faith and keep smiling! Hugs! xo
Thanks Lauren, I really do consider it a miracle, too and I appreciate you seeing it. It really is a blessing I have come through it all and really try to be writing happy and uplifting things. You know, if my faith wasn’t this strong it wouldn’t be going in this direction. I am also happy to hear you have had some miracles in your life, we just have to keep believing and I promise to keep smiling! 🙂 Hugs back to you! xo
I’m glad you do have a strong faith, Gabby…at times, mine gets a bit wobbly, however, it’s there, always, and without it, hope would be lost. I have to believe He is watching over us and guiding us throughout each day and I know He has watched over you~ xo
Being human I think we can all have our faith get wobbly sometimes Lauren. But once we get ourselves back on track, we know and believe God really is watching over us. You are so right, he sure has watched over me overtime! 🙂 xo
