Miracle Story

Recognising the Miracle

When my mother was dying, my aunty, who didn’t believe in any form of after life, asked Mum to show her a sign if there was something on the other side. Of course, Mum agreed, saying the sign would be something usual – the opposite of what she would be.

Mum finally passed away two days before New Year.

My aunty and uncle always spent New Year’s Eve with their daughter, and usually stay to just after midnight. My cousins walked their parents to their car, which they unlocked and opened the passenger door first.

They stood for a few minutes, talking and saying their goodbyes. When they turned back to the car, there, sitting in the seat, was a big Alsatian dog. “The dog came from nowhere”, my auntie’s words, not mine. They tried everything they could think of to get the dog out with no sound coming from the dog.

After half an hour or trying to get the dog out of the car, they were discussing what they would do next. When they turned back to the car, the dog had disappeared.

My aunty rang me the next day, asking, “Do you think this was from your Mum?”

“Of course,” I said.

Aunty replied, saying that Mum hated dogs after she was bitten as a child. She then remembered that dog was an Alsatian.

“What more proof do you want?” I said, hoping to give her comfort.

Still unconvinced, two months passed, and I received another call.

Aunty had said a few words at Mum’s funeral, and had typed this on the computer. Once printed, she deleted the file. The only files remaining on the computer were bookkeeping ones relating to the household expenses.

Why the call? She had opened a new page to write a letter to a friend, and there, on the page, was my mother’s name. Further down the page, “I am here”.

Once again, my Aunt was unsure whether this was the sign, even after she processed to try to work out how it could have logically appeared on her computer.

As I said to my aunt, “Accept the miracle when it’s presented. Often, we miss the miracle because it’s not what we think it should be, or how it’s going to appear in your life.”
