I was taught to believe that the definition of a miracle is that which is impossible but happens anyway. Growing up as an avid student of science, I couldn't believe in miracles. Because impossible is a word that has meaning.

Now I'm over 50 and I've seen a lot of miracles. But now I define miracle differently.

A miracle is that which is wildly improbable but happens anyway at precisely the right time to do the most good. It's possible. But not very plausible.

I wish this were a more widespread viewpoint. And I wish people were on the lookout more for the miracles that happen all the time. And share them and appreciate them.
