When we integrate both the experience and the meaning of coincidences into our own lives, we open ourselves to the enriching possibilities, the blessings, and the sense of harmony with the universe that they offer. Small Miracles presents 60 real-life coincidences--some heartwarming, some strange, some awe-inspiring. 

Small Miracles is a gem of a book that I borrowed from my friend, and I'm glad I did. The book focuses on highlighting some of the miracles that have happened in the everyday lives of various people. Many of the stories were about romantic, quite a few were about family and some were about people who were virtual strangers. When it comes right down to it though, the common theme of each of these miracles is the fact that they all revolved around love.

My favorite story is about the father and son who didn't see eye to eye, resulting in them not talking for years. It was only many, many years later that something (you probably thought I was going to mention what it was, huh?) happened to reconcile the two.

Each story, no matter how short or random the incident, managed to touch my heart and make me feel happier and more optimistic about the world as a whole. I would definitely recommend Small Miracles to anyone as something to read when you're feeling a little low - the hope that each miracle brings to fruition is sure to inspire you and strengthen your wavering faith!
