Love, Hope, Miracles…

Corrina and Michael Schumacher

“She would view breaking faith with the hope of a miracle a betrayal, little better than treachery”

Sometimes, on an otherwise mundane day of our lives, life brings to us stories of true love, of grit, hope and other such miracles of life. Today is one such day, when I came across the sentence quoted above. This was a family friend of the Schumachers, Corrina and Michael. He was echoing sentiments of Corrina, Michael’s wife, who is hoping for miracle. We all know the F1 champ is in coma since Dec 29, after suffering severe brain damage in a freak accident while skiing. Corrina, his wife for 23 years, is spending £10 million on a fully-equipped medical facility at their residence, in the hope that her husband can return home to recuperate, instead of being lodged in an ICU.

In the world full of ‘practical’ people, who prefer rational approach while dealing with such hope-without-hope situations, her belief, her companionship, her unflinching support to a near-lost husband is a rather relieving news. There is hope for hope, it seems!

Schumacher, our beloved champ, is in prayers of his millions of fans. I am adding Corrina’s faith too in my prayers. After all, didn’t someone say, ‘Miracles are natural. When they do not occur, something has gone wrong.’

Let’s add our faiths to hers; it is still known to move mountains…

And, Murray Stays On…

MurrayWell, it wasn’t a great sight when I started watching today’s Wimbledon men’s quarterfinal – Andy Murray was playing unseeded Spaniard Verdasco. Keeping with this season’s tradition of lesser known players killing the Wimbledon dream of giants like Federer and Rafa, Murray had lost 2 sets back to back, and when I switched on the television set, I saw in the stand Murray’s girlfriend had tears rolling down her cheeks. I, an ardent Murray fan this summer, almost whispered to myself, “Well, what’s really wrong with this day?”

There are days when you feel really low – down; barely holding enough not to go out, just as yet. With two sets down, this much loved Brit tennis player was certainly not in high spirits. But he wasn’t out as yet, I told myself…

And then he came back from behind into the game. And came back with a bang, winning the next 3 straight sets, finally winning the match. It was quite an emotional match and he held his nerve.

Something inside me too won today with his victory. The day, finally, seemed to come to a good end. I am sure different kind of tears are rolling down the cheeks of Murray’s girl post match.

As they say, everything comes if a man will only wait. With Murray coming back to the road of victory via mountains in this match, I am optimistic that very soon, England’s wait of over 70 years of an Englishman winning the coveted Wimbledon trophy will come to a happy end.

Hopes are alive, they are. I am looking forward to a good day, a good game of life…
