If you can open yourself to receiving and understanding the meaning of these gifts, you will experience the possibilities, the blessings, and the sense of harmony within the universe that they offer.« less
PERFECT BOOK FOR ALL-OCCASION GIFTS
I hate sappy books. Trust me, this was NOT one of them. The beautiful, simple true stories amused, amazed, and brought a tear to these jaundiced eyes. What a lovely surprise!
A very inspirational "warm fuzzy" kind of book. The stories are followed by "comments" that bring everything into full focus. Some stories pull at your heart strings - others you find yourself saying "wow" outloud softly. This was yet another book that I found to be a quick read. I have held onto this book for a while because I really enjoyed reflecting back on it.
Small Miracles is the first book written by the authors (several others have since been published).
I read this several years ago and then put it away on a book shelf because I knew that I would want to read it again. When I found "Small Miracles for the Jewish Heart", I knew I had to order it.
As a result of reading my new acquisition, I started re-reading my old copy of Small Miracles. (See my review of Small Miracles for the Jewish Heart).
I can only say that my second reading of this book made an even greater impression on me than when I read it the first time.
All I can say is that you will either really love it or really hate it....depends on whether you are open to the possibility of real miracles right now all around us and in some cases, we are part of the story.
This book is about extraordinary coincidences from everyday life. Its a great book. Because it is a collection of stories, it is a good book to read on the subway. Its small enough to fit in an attache case or handbag.
