so I asked her....

"how in the world do I ever thank my blog loves for being my guardian angels and saying such amazing things to me when I really needed their support"
and
she told me
"someday all of them will have beautiful wings like mine to go along with those beautiful hearts I keep seeing and feeling because they've earned them"
and
then I turned and slowly walked away
and
when I glanced back at her
she winked at me
and
mouthed
"they really are amazing aren't they"
and
then tears filled my eyes while I covered my heart
knowing that here
I am blessed

  1. This post is really lovely - how did you ever find the picture of the angel? I think guardian angels come to us from all over the place. I am only new to blogging but I have been humbled by the lovely people that are out there :)

  2. This shot is so perfect !!! Sweet, funny and lovely, just how I imagine a chat with my angels.

    I love how God provides us angels on Earth whenever we need them. We get to be angels for each other right here and now - how awesome is that ?

    I am grateful, as always, for the chance to soul connect. So glad you got the love and comfort package we all sent ! ;)

  3. Mothers Rock! If you want anyone to watch your back, hold you on wobbly legs, dry your tears, or just gently hold your hand as they remind you of your value ... seek out Mothers! Glad to be able to be part of your own special Mother mafia!

  5. Oh, Beth -- you do know how to have every word perfect and from the heart. I, too, have experienced the angelic forces of blogland and it is overwhelming, joyous, and so very special.

    Your chalk angel looks a bit like you... hmmm. There are no coincidences...

  9. Umm, me? Angel? So not...anymore than I'm an actual Mom. Well, in the biological sense for both of those.

    But, in love with you and your work? Now that I can admit to...

    Have your heart in my hands just as you have mine? No question there either.

    Be careful to entertain strangers...for thereby have men entertained angels unaware...

    HUGS!
