A little girl went to her bedroom and 
pulled a glass jar from its hiding place 
in the closet. 

She poured the change 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 
 six  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 busy at the
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' the girl said.
   ' 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
 ,  a well - dressed man , was
standing there . 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 audible. 

'And it's all the money I have, but I can get some more 
if I have

'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 
 who  specialized  in neuro-surgery.  

The operation was completed free of 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 dollar and eleven cents...
 plus the faith of a little child. 

In our lives, we never know how many miracles 
 we will  need. 

A miracle is not the suspension of natural law, but the 
 operation of a higher law. 
 I hope  you'll keep the ball moving! 
Here it goes. Throw it back to 
someone who means something to you! 

A ball is a circle, 
 with no beginning, no   end.  
 It keeps us together like our Circle of Friends.  
 But the treasure inside for you to see is the treasure 
of friendship you've granted to me. 

Today I pass the friendship ball to you. 

Pass it on to someone who is a friend to you.
