It started off to be a work day like any other. I was collating stories for this issue, when unexpectedly, I realized I’d been an eyewitness to not one, but two, completely unrelated miracles.

It was an awareness that caught me completely off guard.

Before this, I never thought about miracles manifesting in my life; and, if asked, I would probably have said miracles are things that happen to really exceptional people, the kind of people who catch whatever life throws at them and who still keep working to make things better for others. It’s like they deserve miracles more, right? I also figured that miracles played favourites anyway, just like lady luck—and I definitely didn’t see myself on the short list. And I was ok with that.
