There's a dialogue in a favorite movie of mine from the late '80s that goes something like this:
Character 1: ... you better be right, because it looks like this last one is going to take a miracle.
Character 2: It's Christmas ... It's the time of miracles ...
This came to me as I was thinking about what to write for the blog as we enter the Christmas season. Although miracles take place every day, regardless of the time of year, there is one particular miracle that happened during the holidays when I was child, a miracle that I didn't understand very well until I was older and that had a lasting effect on our family.
