Carpe Diem Farms has sadly added another angel to heaven. Our incredible Miracle lay down, went to sleep and died.
Each creature that has graced my life has held a special place in my heart. Miracle was, without a doubt, the most remarkable.
Born blind and deaf, I adopted him at 10 months old. He arrived from Alabama, full of life, awkward and most loveable. Miracle’s infirmities never impaired him. He loved life with every fiber of his being, greeted all he met with joyful enthusiasm, asked for what he wanted and showed his love and appreciation with sweet gentle kisses. He risked life every day as he, on a leash, led us on long walks around the farm. His keen sense of the energy field around him kept him from running into things, he navigated stairs with careful abandon. He ran with his head held high, dragging me behind!
Like “Tuesday’s With Morrie,” Miracle had an enormous wealth of lessons to share and teach. In his life of joy at every waking moment and his death without warning, he simply lived one moment at a time, took his last breath and was no more.
This is It, today, this moment in life is not a dress rehearsal!
More Miracle Man Lessons: Stop more often to appreciate all there is… people, animals, birds; the place; Say thank you for the gift of life, this breath; The trees, flowers, water…see it all, hear it all. Miracle could not and yet he “found” everyone who entered his space and shared his joy and gratitude…may I remember those gifts, those lessons, every day when I awaken and while I still have breath.
You were an amazing spirit in a little body, thank you my Miracle Man for sharing these 11 years with me. I will love you always.
