[Writer’s Quote Wednesday] Her Miracle

“I’m sorry she never got her miracle.”

“She did get her miracle, Landon, her miracle was you.”

-Nicholas Sparks, A Walk To Remember

Ask anyone about a miracle, and you’ll start a debate. They exist, they don’t exist, they’re the big shockers in life, they’re the little things every day.

Ask her about a miracle, and she knows exactly what she would say: all of the above. Because her miracle was him.

He existed, as solid as a brick wall, which was pretty much what he was during every argument they had. It frustrated her to no end. But now, he’s as solid as wisps of smoke, and she’d do anything just to have another argument with him.

They liked to say that her “yes” shocked the world. Because everyone who knew her knew that she wasn’t the marrying type. “It’s just a piece of paper,” she’d say. And every tiny smile that passed between the two of them, every quick good morning kiss and every good night cuddle, they were the little miracles that showed her she was wrong about the piece of paper.

Ask anyone about a miracle, and they’ll tell you that it’s a wonderful occasion, a once-in-a-lifetime extraordinary event that changes everything forever. But I look at her tears and I listen to her silence and I can’t help but wonder if she would have been better off without her miracle.

What do you think, guys? Is it possible for a miracle to hurt more than it heals?

  1. I think in you question it reminds me of the phrase be careful what you wish for. Buy a miracle isn’t a wish, it’s something miraculous and remind us that nothing is impossible. Anything that inspires and invokes faith can only bring healing. ❤

  2. I feel that the miracle of “true love” is always worth the potential loss. Life has only one guarantee, so don’t waste your limited amount of time fretting about possible loss and sorrow. For all you know, you might have decades of joy. Love with abandon.

    1. Those are wise words, Charles, and they ring true. With possible loss, there’s also a possible long life of love and happiness. Sometimes, we have to take the risk for the possibilities. Thank you for sharing your thoughts, Charles!

  3. i think yes it can, because for a miracle to happen that would entail sacrifice…the bigger the miracle the greater the sacrifice….well my thoughts at least….lovely post Jade! I enjoyed both the book and the movie.

    1. That is a very interesting insight. I never related sacrifice to miracles before, although it does make sense in a way. Thank you for sharing your thoughts! I too enjoyed the book and the movie (obviously ha!) I’m a big fan of Nicholas Sparks 🙂

        1. I agree! He makes North Carolina sound so beautiful and serene that it is now on my list of places to visit. No apologies for digressing, we go where the conversation takes us 🙂
