It's a Christmas Miracle

Well, sort of, it wasn't on Christmas and there may be some debate as to the miraculous nature of the event, but to me it was like a Christmas miracle. Here's the Story:

A few days back, I was coming home from vacation in Panama City, FL.  The airport there is pretty small, and we were sitting and waiting for our plane.  I started looking for a soda machine as I really wanted a Coke.  We found a machine and my brother-in-law was sad because he only had a dollar, and the machine cost was two.  So, I opened my wallet and found four one dollar bills.  I let him have one, leaving me with three.  Plenty for a Coke of my own.

Then I had the thought, "I wonder if my wife would like a drink."  So I asked her.  I was sad to discover that she did indeed want a Diet Coke.  Having only 3 dollars and each soda costing 2 it was looking as though a Coke would be out of my reach.

I purchased my wife her Diet Coke. Then I looked in my wallet, and there were TWO dollars in it.  Extremely confused as to where this extra dollar came from, I purchased my Coke and thirsted no more. 

Now, maybe I counted wrong.  But, that's not what matters.  The happiness it brought to me upon discovering that I was indeed going to get the Coke that I so desired was a miracle to me.  Kinda lame I know.  But it had been a hard few days, and it was just something that made me so happy, I had to share with my 2 blog readers.

I'm going to start putting what I'm currently listening to on the bottom of my entries.

Bad News

In this world of trepidation
Trapped by my imagination
Fearing the aftermath of
A single piece of news

Do we really understand
The entire implication
The sugarless necessity
Of the one I truly love

Above anyone else
I fear my best friend
What she can do to me
With a simple smile

Or the pain I feel
Knowing she's in pain
The immense hurt
Knowing she is hurting

I cry like a baby
But only on the inside
Outside I am cold
Emotionless and mean

A pathetic attempt to hide
Hide from the thoughts
That betray my every wish
Crushing my every desire

Lord I pray to you for help
I'm lost in my self pity
Hoist me out quickly
As you've done in the past

Protect my love this day
From the ills and woes of life
If not forever
Then at least for a moment

Grant peace and comfort
Deliver happiness and joy
Carry her to where
I am too weak take her myself

I may try
But I'm not enough
Be for her
All I cannot
