    > A little girl went to her bedroom and pulled a glass jelly jar from
    >its hiding place in the closet. She poured the change out on the floor
    >and
    >counted it carefully. Three times, even. The total had to be exactly
    >perfect. No chance here for mistakes. Carefully placing the coins
    >back
    >in the jar and twisting on the cap, she slipped out the back door
    >and
    >made her way 6 blocks to Rexall's Drug Store with the big red
    >Indian
    >Chief sign above the door. She waited patiently for the pharmacist
    >to
    >give her some attention but he was too busy at this moment. Tess
    >twisted her feet to make a scuffing noise. Nothing. She cleared her
    >throat with the most disgusting sound she could muster! No good.
    >Finally she took a quarter from her jar and banged
    >it on the glass counter. That did it! And what do you want?" the
    >pharmacist asked in an annoyed tone of voice. "I'm talking to my
    >brother
    >from Chicago whom I haven't seen in ages," he said without waiting
    >for a
    >reply to his question. Well, I want to talk to you about my
    >brother,"
    >Tess answered back in the same annoyed tone. "He's really, really
    >sick...
    >and I want to buy a miracle." ''I beg your pardon?" said the
    >pharmacist.
    > His name is Andrew and he has something bad growing inside his
    >head and
    >my Daddy says only a miracle can save him now. So how much does a
    >miracle
    >cost?" We don't sell miracles here, little girl. I'm sorry but I
    >can't
    >help you," the pharmacist said, softening a little. "Listen, I
    >have the
    >money to pay for it. If it isn't enough, I will get the rest. Just
    >tell
    >me how much it costs." The pharmacist's brother was a well dressed
    >man.
    >He stooped down and asked the little girl, "What kind of a miracle
    >does
    >your brother need?" I don't know," Tess replied with her eyes
    >welling up.
    >"I just know he's really sick and Mommy says he needs an operation.
    >But
    >my Daddy can't pay for it, so I want to use my money." How much do
    >you
    >have?" asked the man from Chicago. One dollar and eleven cents,"
    >Tess
    >answered barely audibly "And it's all the money I have, but I can
    >get
    >some more if I need to" Well, what a coincidence," smiled the man.
    >"A
    >dollar and eleven cents---the exact price of a miracle for little
    >brothers. " He took her money in one hand and with the other hand
    >he
    >grasped her mitten and said "Take me to where you live. I want to
    >see
    >your brother and meet your parents. Let's see if I have the miracle
    >you
    >need." That well dressed man was Dr. Carlton Armstrong, a surgeon,
    >specializing in neurosurgery. The operation was completed without
    >charge
    >and it wasn't long until Andrew was home again and doing well. Mom
    >and
    >Dad were happily talking about the chain of events that had led
    >them to
    >this place. That surgery," her Mom whispered. "was a real miracle.
    >I
    >wonder how much it would have cost?" Tess smiled. She knew exactly
    >how
    >much a miracle cost...one dollar and eleven cents ...... plus the
    >faith
    >of a little child. A miracle is not the suspension of natural law,
    >but
    >the operation of a higher law......A TRUE STORY!
