Three Small Miracles

(1) Last night Prince Charming arrived at my door and declared: "Madam, I am here to save you." He was handsome, earnest and about 25 years old. I was somewhat nonplussed before I realized he was the night guard assigned to Rotary House during Emmah's absence. Some things that are lost in translation ("save/protect"/whatever!) can be found in cross-cultural chivalry.

(2) Even more miraculous is the experience of having had 96 -- count them! -- consecutive hours, to date, of electrical power on the hospital grounds.

(3) The most wonderful miracle of all is that my grandson turns 16 today. (How did that happen?) Happy Birthday, Huck!
