I truly think that just getting up and breathing in the morning air is a miracle that happens everyday. Our mere existence is a miracle.
Having said that, when I saw this quote I could not help but think of babies. Our whole beginnings of life starts with the formation of fertilization. Our bodies continue to grow, move and breathe within our Mother which of course ends with our birth.
We are bundled up and presented. Ah, the miracle of life!
Sometimes we truly are miracle babies. A personal case in point. After the birth of my first child, I was faced with the very real possibility of not having anymore children. Since I was only 19 at the time, this was pretty devastating.
However, two years later I gave birth to a bouncing baby boy. This in itself was a miracle but even more so because my son and I almost died during childbirth due to a botched C-section.
Miracle baby indeed!
There are also those who have felt the pain of miscarriages, like my daughter but eventually able to conceive and enjoy motherhood.

There are also those who cannot have children for a myriad of reasons but someone, somewhere, has decided to allow an adoption.
Oh yes, miracles of life! How precious. How true.
I am glad to have this miracle and this gift.
