Tonight I saw the movie “Charlotte’s Web.”
If you’re looking for some inspiration
and a reason to believe as you head into
the new year, I urge you to see it.
I had read the book when I was young,
but had forgotten much of the story line
and the underlying message.
It reminds us of the power
that’s in each of us
to make miracles happen.
Take this spider web, for instance
(not difficult to find in my home!).
The fact that a tiny little insect
can produce and spin silk
into an intricate and purposeful web
is an everyday miracle.
If a little spider can do this,
just think what we all can create
by opening our eyes
and opening our hearts
and believing in ourselves.

The movie ends with a song
sung by Sarah McLachlan called
“Ordinary Miracles.”
I think the lyrics are beautiful,
so I’ve posted them here.
You can also see Sarah
perform the song at

It’s not that unusual
When everything is beautiful
It’s just another ordinary miracle today
The sky knows when it’s time to snow
Don’t need to teach a seed to grow
It’s just another ordinary miracle today
Life is like a gift they say
Wrapped up for you everyday
Open up and find a way
to give some of your own
Isn’t it remarkable
Like every time a raindrop falls
It’s just another ordinary miracle today
Birds in winter have their fling
But always make it home by Spring
It’s just another ordinary miracle today

When you wake up everyday
Please don’t throw your dreams away
Hold them close to your heart
‘cause we’re all a part…

Of the ordinary miracle
Ordinary miracle
Do you want to see a miracle?

It seems so exceptional
That things just work out after all
It’s just another ordinary miracle today
Sun comes up and shines so bright
And disappears again at night
It’s just another ordinary miracle today
It’s just another ordinary miracle today
