The other day, after I picked up my daughter from school, I could tell she was in an awesome mood. Zoey scrambled into the car and snatched up my aviator sunglasses before I could say “Top Gun.” She placed them on her tiny face and started singing a song about how much she loved me. She was like a little rock star, performing this ballad of love.
I love taking videos of her when she’s this happy, because although I don’t know what she’s going to do or say, I can always count on being entertained.
So I pulled out my phone, started recording, and asked her a simple question:
How was your day today?
Her response was priceless:
I’ve never been one to get all starry-eyed over rock stars, but she’s one that I will always go crazy for. I mean, my gosh, I ask her how her day was and she ultimately decides that it was a MIRACLE? Who is this child?!
Oh, that’s right: she’s the one I want to grow up to be like. I want to live every day like there’s a miracle around the corner just waiting to happen. It may seem challenging, but maybe it’s not really that hard. Another (pretty famous) rock star summed it up quite well:
So today, let’s channel our inner rock star — our inner Zoey or our inner Bon Jovi. Let’s go out and make today miraculous. The miracles are there — we just need to look for them.
(Just remember to wear your sunglasses, ’cause when your future’s that bright, you gotta wear shades.)
