My Good Time Stories

Every once in a while, I come across a story that renews my faith in miracles. The following true story is an example of how miracles just “don’t happen” but come from a higher being.

Tess was a precocious eight-year-old when she heard her Mom and Dad talking about her little brother, Andrew. All she knew was that he was very sick and they were completely out of money. They were moving to an apartment complex next month because Daddy didn’t have the money for the doctor bills and their house.

Only a very costly surgery could save him now and it was looking like there was no one to loan them the money. She heard Daddy say to her tearful Mother with whispered desperation,

“Only a miracle can save him now.”

Tess went to her bedroom and pulled a glass jelly jar from its…

About Jennie

I have been teaching preschool for over thirty-five years. This is my passion. I believe that children have a voice, and that is the catalyst to enhance or even change the learning experience. Emergent curriculum opens young minds. It's the little things that happen in the classroom that are most important and exciting. That's what I write about. I was a live guest on the Kelly Clarkson Show. I am highlighted in the seventh edition of Jim Trelease's million-copy bestselling book, "The Read-Aloud Handbook" because of my reading to children. My class has designed quilts that hang as permanent displays at the National Liberty Museum in Philadelphia, the Fisher House at the Boston VA Hospital, and the Massachusetts State House in Boston.

    Jennie, I confess, I do not get to read all of your posts. This one was definitely digging at my curiosity and I must tell you that it worked. Mary and I are again needing to move. The current place and landlady (realtor Janet Cramb) did a number on us and only filled this apt. with our warm bodies and money as she intended to sell all along. We have only been in here for 7 1/2 months. Suffice to say, Mary and I have desperately wanted back in Groton. Miracle is that we just looked at apartment on Elm St. which is where I lived with my daughter when we first came to Groton. Our tenancy there lasted 11 years and we only vacated due to that landlord wanting to sell property! Imagine, that full circle. The apartment on the first floor is now open and we had a chance to view it and file our forms in hopes it will go well. This is the kind of miracle which requires a strong dose of Faith and belief that miracles really do happen. Not just once, but, as many times as is necessary in one’s life. Never STOP believing that God has us in the palm of His Hand….The all sufficient God.

    Thank you for your wisdom and giving spirit Jennie.

    A friend,

    Linda Witham
