It’s not that usual when everything is beautiful
It’s just another ordinary miracle today

The sky knows when its time to snow
You don’t need to teach a seed to grow
It’s just another ordinary miracle today

Life is like a gift they say
Wrapped up for you everyday
Open up and find a way
To give some of your own

Isn’t it remarkable?
Like every time a raindrop falls
It’s just another ordinary miracle today

Birds in winter have their fling
And always make it home by spring
It’s just another ordinary miracle today

When you wake up everyday
Please don’t throw your dreams away
Hold them close to your heart
Cause we are all a part
Of the ordinary miracle

Ordinary miracle
Do you want to see a miracle?

Its seems so exceptional
Things just work out after all
It’s just another ordinary miracle today

The sun comes up and shines so bright
It disappears again at night
It’s just another ordinary miracle today

It’s just another ordinary miracle today

Ordinary Miracle – Sarah McLachlan

I love this song loads. I’m told that it’s in the Charlotte’s Web film that’s out at the moment which I’m actually not bothered about seeing (roll on May when the cinema opens here and I dont have to trek off on the train to go to the pictures). I read the book when I was much younger but I can’t remember too much about it’s plot.

There are some books from my childhood I still adore and re-read – I finished reading Goodnight Mr Tom by Michelle Magorian yesterday and that is a powerful tale that still amazes me. Unfortunately (or not, depending on how you look at it) Charlotte’s Web is not in that category and it’s just too much effort to go to the cinema to see the film. Maybe when it’s on DVD.

Anyway I think Sarah McLachlan is a hugely talented singer and I’ve always liked her songs. She has a way of putting really feeling and emotions into her songs – and that just makes them even more powerful than the lyrics would suggest.

Things just work out after all – that is something I’ve been trying to focus on a lot lately in hopes of leaving behind some of my stress, guilt, anger, and depression. Several people have told me it’s working and I can half see it for myself but not too clearly. So that is one of my favourite lines from the song.

And when you think about it, Nature is a miracle in so many ways. Ways that change with each day and moment that passes.

Its seems so exceptional
Things just work out after all
It’s just another ordinary miracle today
