Have you ever wondered if there is an Angel in your life? I know I certainly have wondered over time. Every sense I was a little girl there has always been something or someone protecting me from danger. Not the kind of childhood danger we all experience. After all this is a part of life and must be experienced. I am talking about the kind of protection when you are driving really fast and you should not be able to make the corner. Much to your surprise, you sail through the corner without a scratch. Yep, this is what it is all about. Special little things at the strangest of times. Here is one of my stories:
Bob and I and our three daughters moved to Pennsylvania in July of 1991. It was a truly beautiful summer here in the Pocono Mountains. I lost my job because it was just too hard to commute from where we live to Long Island City, Queens, NY. My car broke down and I had to rely on others to get my daughters back and forth to the bus stop which was two miles away. Many afternoons I had to walk in the cold of late fall and winter to walk back home with them because others were working and unavailable.
It was a very dark, cloudy, dreary day outside. Two days prior to Christmas we were three months behind in our mortgage, very little fuel oil to heat the house and no money for Christmas presents for the girls. I sat on my sofa and started to cry. I asked if there was something I could do to give my daughters a little Christmas. I have two large sky lights in my living room right over the sofa. As I sat there and the tears would not stop, I was frightened that I was letting the girls down as a mother. All of a sudden, a ray of sight came through the sky light and touched my shoulder. At that very instance, I knew in my heart that everything would be all right. I just knew and that was all there was to it.
That evening, Bob came home with a large check. It was more than enough to pay the mortgage up to date. We were able to fill the fuel tank which lasted through the winter and into the next. We had groceries for a month and most of all we were able to give the girls a nice little Christmas. I do not know what touched my shoulder that day. I do know the love and warmth I felt was so intense it made me feel as though I was whole. It made me realized I am not alone in this world. It made me realize I have a Guardian Angel watching over me on a daily basis.
Today, as I move through life, I feel the presence of my Angel. I am grateful for its influence in my life. More importantly, I can always speak to my Angel about anything. As it is with God I may not always get what I ask for, but I do get what I need to move forward in my life. I am wishing you an amazing day full of blessings and peace.
