A Miracle For A Dollar and Eleven Cents

A Miracle For A Dollar and Eleven Cents
A little girl went to her bedroom and pulled a glass jelly jar from its hiding place in the closet. She poured the change out on the floor and counted it carefully. Three times, even. The total had to be exactly perfect. No chance here for mistakes.
Carefully placing the coins back in the jar and twisting on the cap, she slipped out the back door and made her way 6 blocks to Rexall's Drug Store with the big red Indian Chief sign above the door.
She waited patiently for the pharmacist to give her some attention, but he was too busy at this moment. Tess twisted her feet to make a scuffing noise. Nothing. She cleared her throat with the most disgusting sound she could muster. No good. Finally she took a quarter from her jar and banged it on the glass counter. That did it!
'And what do you want?' the pharmacist asked in an annoyed tone of voice. I'm talking to my brother from Chicago whom I haven't seen in ages,' he said without waiting for a reply to his question.
'Well, I want to talk to you about my brother,' Tess answered back in the same annoyed tone. 'He's really, really sick ... and I want to buy a miracle.' 'I beg your pardon?' said the pharmacist.
'His name is Andrew and he has something bad growing inside his head and my Daddy says only a miracle can save him now. So how much does a miracle cost?' 'We don't sell miracles here, little girl. I’m sorry but I can't help you,' the pharmacist said, softening a little.
'Listen, I have the money to pay for it. If it isn't enough, I will get the rest. Just tell me how much it costs.'
The pharmacist's brother was a well-dressed man. He stooped down and asked the little girl, 'What kind of a miracle does your brother need?' 'I don't know,' Tess replied with her eyes welling up. 'I just know he's really sick and Mommy says he needs an operation. But my Daddy can't pay for it, so I want to use my money.'
'How much do you have?' asked the man from Chicago. 'One dollar and eleven cents,' Tess answered barely audibly. 'And it's all the money I have, but I can get some more if I need to.'
'Well, what a coincidence,' smiled the man. 'A dollar and eleven cents - the exact price of a miracle for little brothers.' He took her money in one hand and with the other hand he grasped her mitten and said 'Take me to where you live. I want to see your brother and meet your parents. Let's see if I have the miracle you need.'
That well dressed man was Dr. Carlton Armstrong, a surgeon, specializing in neuro-surgery. The operation was completed free of charge and it wasn't long until Andrew was home again and doing well.
Mom and Dad were happily talking about the chain of events that had led them to this place. 'That surgery,' her Mom whispered 'was a real miracle. I wonder how much it would have cost?'
Tess smiled. She knew exactly how much a miracle cost ... one dollar and eleven cents ... plus the faith of a little child.

The Little Mermaid

While I do believe that a creature resembling a mermaid can exist, I don't think that's it. It looks too much like a hoax and too much like the description of a mermaid. The only way a creature like that could exist is if in the early years of the primates, one of the subspecies took to the water and stayed there. (kinda like the ancient land whales)

Many people seek success but never find it in one's life. You can only find success by looking for knowledge. Once the knowledge is found than there must be action taken upon this knowledge gained. When you learn how to apply the knowledge than one can say they are successful in life.

I myself have been searching for this knowledge in many ways. Looking in an endless manner but never finding the direct path to success. To find this path I have found you must look at your self-discipline and find your inner self being. Once you have accepted the fact that all things in life can be gained be knowledge than one must seek out this knowledge in life.

With knowledge you can manifest the things in life you want with little or no effort. You may ask; what knowledge can do this for me? I would answer this with one simple answer. Follow your gut feelings to the things you want in life for they will bring you the success you are seeking. The manifestation of your needs can only be gained by staying focused on what you want in life and not on what you don't want in life. While searching for these needs in life you will follow a path to your destination.

If you ask; how do you know you are taking the right path to success? It is simple to follow the path if your focus is to find success. It is knowledge in a focused view of what you need to make the things in life to manifest for you. You will see this success, once you feel it takes little effort to making the funds to what you are looking for in life. It can be as little of a thing as just finding new friends to share your life and enjoy it. This is a vary important point to look at, for this is how we make money in life. Building relationships with others who want ths same thing in life. The ability to gain power over one's inner thoughts to a more sharing view. Once this is accomplished you will find the kind of relationships that build wealth. Once you find this kind of success you than can say you are successful in life.

Now I would like to tell you this is one of the greatest feelings you can have in life. Sharing with others the success you have found and teaching them how to succeed them selves. In ones life we all must seek success in one way or another so we can enjoy life!
