A Thanksgiving Miracle

He didn't have a reminder on, neither had he marked his calendar. It was etched in his memory and would remain so for a long time to come. It was this day last year.

Like all others in his business, he had a routine which he followed religiously. Every day of his busy life and wealthy existence was almost the same. There was never a good time to slow down or think back. Even today, he was drowned in his work and music, just like the day before. But life decided to play a different tune that day, a melodious song that brought his fast paced hectic world to a screeching halt. Something, someone really beautiful entered his life.  He no longer knew what was playing on his mp3 player. All his attention was drawn to this beautiful girl as she entered the room. She had managed to make the music, and everything else sound dull. Her pink complexion, her tender skin glowed in the light of the mercury lamps. To him, she was the epitome of beauty, so fragile and delicate he knew he wanted to care of her for the rest of her life. Till the end of time.

In the past he had been claimed almost overconfident. Today, for the first time in his life, he felt he needed help! He didn't know what to do. He had never been so sure of his goal and yet so unsure of the means. He had always found a way. In his heart he badly wanted to hold her in his arms. As she turned her head slightly, his heart skipped a beat.He wanted someone to tell him, he deserved this angel. God had sent His finest in his care. He would love her and keep her safe from this world, preserve her and cherish her. Really afraid of reaching out to her, of hurting her, he looked around for help.

His eagerness could be seen in his eyes. Lucky for him the nurse looked at him, and slowly walked across the room towards him. As he held his daughter for the first time, a tear of joy rolled down his cheek. Daddy's little angel had brought a smile on his face that day, and she continues to do it till today. And he still thanks God everyday.

PS: I am really thankful for a loving and understanding family, fun and caring friends and everything else  that makes my life wonderful. Happy thanksgiving everyone! =)
