I would have to say the biggest miracles that have happened in my life that i can recall at the moment are:
The time I was shot in the back with a BB gun, it was only a centimeter or so from hitting my spine and paralyzing me.
There was also a time when i was fairly young and couldn't swim, i almost drowned in a pool but was thrown out of the water (ironically enough) by
the man who was my stepfather at the time. It's ironic because he didn't treat my mom very well towards the end of their relationship but in that
moment he was actually concerned for me.
Another miracle (in my opinion) is when i was about 13 or so; I saved a little girl from drowning in the river. It was in New Braunfels, Texas where
people go tubing on the rivers (inner tubes). She fell off of her tube on a small (a foot or so) waterfall and was being swept downstream where it was
deeper; I wasn't paying attention, and she managed to grab my foot (i was standing on a rock in the middle of the river) i grabbed her and helped her
stay up until her mom got past the water fall.
The last miracle i can think of right at this moment is my relationship with my girlfriend. It's a miracle because of the way we got together and the
fact that we are still together. We met in high school (i'm turning 19 in February and she has been 20 since October), she was dating a guy on and
off for four years and they had planned to get married (talked about more than planned). He moved to North Carolina mid semester of her Junior and my
Sophomore year. She called me one day during the summer wanting to hang out with me but i couldn't because i was on a trip to New Braunfels with my
dad, so we agreed that as soon as i got back we would.
We hit it off immediately and we ended up falling asleep on the couch watching a movie with my friend. Our relationship went fine for about 6 months
and then her ex started calling her and feeding her more lies about how he wanted to be with her (i know he was lying because he wrote love letters to
her best friend). She was thinking about being with him but didn't want to because I treated her so good, then there were the times that she said she
didn't deserve me. Well, we made it through all kinds of ups and downs and now we've been together for over 2 years. Things have been great for a
year and really great for over 6 months, to me and her that is a sign that we are meant for each other.
One last miracle is the changes i've gone through. I consider them to be miracles, because now I have a totally different mindset than i did in the
past. I'm not really sure why it has happened, but it has. Now i try not to put myself before others, and i try to show everyone love and offer them
friendship or help if i can. This has happened over the past year or so. It's hard for me to explain to you guys, because you haven't known me my
whole life, but i think it's good.
Peace and love
