Seeland Park Stories: My Miracle

July 23, 2020

I have always believed in miracles; and during this terrible pandemic, I have not been disappointed! My mother always planted pansies every year; and she told me, “When you have white pansies, they are telling you that somebody is watching over you.”

I have never planted pansies so you can imagine my surprise when I went out to check my rose bush in the front rock bed. Sitting around the bush, were many pansy clumps! And in one of them was a beautiful group of white pansies.

This was my miracle – my beloved Mother had sent birds to plant these beautiful flowers! And in the one grouping, the bouquet of white pansies said to me, “God & your Mother are watching over you during this difficult time. Your dad, myself, & Jesus walk with you every day.” Each time I look at the pansies, I smile!

Hold on to your faith and keep a smile. As strong Americans, we will get through this large bump in the road. If you need an extra nudge, come see my miracle pansies!

Social distancing is just physical distance. We can all connect through words on a page. Submit your idea, and we will contact you with some simple questions to answer.
