The doodle above is one that I wrote in a little journal I use to jot down prayers, intentions, whatever I might be thinking about or longing for. Last Tuesday evening, I was reflecting on how fortunate I am.
I wrote most of the doodle above on that evening. On the evening of January 22nd, however, I added the Thank You to the message. That morning I received a call from Jenny from Fulfillment Services Marketing giving me one last chance to accept the GRAND PRIZE in the Swarovski Passport to Sparkle! Sweepstakes. An email had been sent out on the 13th of January. I reinstalled the data on my iPhone that same day and apparently lost the email somewhere in the reinstall process. Jenny was sweet enough to call to make sure I had the opportunity to accept. I’m pretty sure my angels were a part of that fortuitous call!
As the single grand prize winner, I will receive $1000 worth of Swarovski jewelry, a 5 day trip for 2 to Rio de Janeiro, $500/person spa services, a jeep tour of the rainforest and $1000 spending money!!!! WOW!! I am over the moon excited about it! I’ve never been to Brazil and am eager to visit!
I am most definitely a blessed and lucky person, but I truly believe that everyone who asks and is receptive to help from their angels can receive it. I started reading a book by Lorna Byrne last night, “Angels In My Hair – The True Story of a Modern-Day Irish Mystic”. It is a fascinating read. She has been seeing and talking to angels since she was a baby and shares some wonderful stories in her book. She stated several times in the book that our angels need only be asked and they will help us. Byrne says, “We need not wait until we are desperate and in great pain to ask for this assistance; we should be asking every day, or every month, or once a year: “I want my angels with me through everything I do.” This simple request will empower the angels to help us.” (pp.62-63)
Whether you believe in them or not, there are angels waiting to help you with any problem you are experiencing and to celebrate in the joyous occasions in your life. Just ask for their help and they’ll be there. Looking back on my life, there are many times where I know the intervention of angels helped my family and friends. One instance that comes immediately to mind occurred when I was very young and my youngest brother was a mere infant. Car seats were not the norm back then and I was riding with my siblings in the back of our station wagon. My youngest brother somehow managed to open the door while we were travelling down Fairmont Boulevard, a fairly busy street. My mom didn’t hear the door and continued driving and my brother nearly fell out, but I was able to grab him and keep him in the car. I alerted my mom who immediately stopped the car. I know there were angels watching over all of us that day. My mom has a guardian angel that has had to put in some overtime hours and has kept her safe through two heart attacks and an aortic bypass surgery. My family has some powerful angels on guard for us. That being said, sometimes we have to go through painful or difficult events because there is a lesson we need to learn and grow from. In these times, we can ask our angels to provide comfort or to help us to find a solution to a problem.
When our angels do come through for us and help us, as in any other situation, I think it’s only right and fair to tell them thank you! I’m sure the number of good deeds done by angels go largely unrecognized, so when we do find ourselves the beneficiary of a serendipitous circumstance it might be nice to give some credit and gratitude to our angels.
In good times and in bad, I am so incredibly thankful to my guardian angel and any other angels that are with me! They have kept me safe and provided me with many amazing opportunities and experiences. Thank you, my awesome angels!!
