Albert Einstein said, “There are only two ways to live your life. One is as though nothing is a miracle. The other is as though everything is a miracle.” Now that’s genius! The holiday season is a time for miracles. Make a miracle happen at least once a day. (Might make a good Advent practice.) Surprise someone with Christmas cookies, offer free childcare, offer to store someone else’s Christmas presents and wrap them, take someone who doesn’t drive to a concert or play, include in your Christmas cards a note about how much the recipient means to you, offer to clean a teacher’s classroom on the last day of school, shovel the next-door neighbor’s sidewalk or driveway, get involved in a community or parish project. While performing such an activity, pray for the recipient(s). That will make each act a double miracle.
