Miracle or Just a Gift?

Yesterday I received on of those emails, I know you have all gotten them, filled with angels and a little prayer. In addition to the instructions not to delete but send to seven friends, it even said I would get this miracle by 8:30 a.m. the next morning. I have never counted the exact number of friends I feel "safe" sending these kind of emails to, but I dutifully sent off the email to my "email friendly" set. This morning, one of the friends from the list called and wanted to know what miracle I had been granted (plus she gave me instructions to take her off of my "email friendly" list). So, I had to think if any miracles had occurred. This is an activity I think I need to do more often, and I recommend it to all of you as well. So here I was thirty minutes past miracle time figuring out if I had had any miracles. So this is what I came up with. Do you think it was a miracle or just a great gift? Yesterday I had my windows cleaned (all I had to do was write the check) and I can't believe how wonderful it is. Today I am going around the house all happy. It is like everything in house seems cleaner and newer, brighter and better! I had cleaned the house (myself) the day before and it felt good to have a clean house. It always does, even if I feel cripple for a day following the actual cleaning. But to have a clean house and clean windows. Wooow! I knew I had this one window (the one in the photo) that was bugging me because I could tell it was filthy. Also this is a window I have to look at often because it is opposite the throne in the "library." (Those of you who know me, know that I visit this spot frequently.) Well this window has been bothering me for awhile. I never knew the other windows were keeping so much of the beauty out!
So there you have it. I am full of joy today because my house is still clean and the windows also being clean is icing on the cake.
So do you think I got my email promise of a miracle or did I just get a wonderful gift?
