I have a friend who sent me some angels today and I really needed them. Desperately. She is a very special person, unique in ways that defy description. I don’t believe I have ever met anyone who is truly filled with love and whose goal was truly peace until I met her. I am grateful and awed to be any part of her life and honored to have her as a part of my life. In her case, I truly do believe in fate. It was fate that we met. It was fate that we found each other. I simply can’t believe otherwise.

And though we have never met in the real world, I couldn’t love her move. I couldn’t treasure that connection more. And it’s funny because we aren’t in contact in any constant sense. We don’t email everyday or gab on the phone often. Yet, I always feel like she is there, in the room with me. I carry her in my world and maybe in some inexplicable metaphysical sense, I talk to her every day on that level.

The people in our lives are so special and we so rarely acknowledge that, much less say anything out loud. I realized this today. Maybe it was the angels who opened my eyes, or the spiritual connection I feel to this most special person, or maybe it was just something I don’t need to define in any way. Maybe I just need to accept that something happened today for me. Something changed. And I’m a better person because of it.

I believe in angels, I always have. And I hope I always will.

  1. What beautiful image and a beautiful post. πŸ™‚

    Hey Teeni,
    I loved the picture too – it’s what I see when I imagine it.


  2. How sweet….friendship is an awesome thing.

    Well, Nano starts in a few hours πŸ™‚ All the best to you AnnieGirl! Keep the faith!

    Hey Gracie!
    Yep, and I haven’t written a word yet, but the night is still young. Are you having trouble on that website? I am. Whassup with that? πŸ˜‰


  3. πŸ™‚ .

    Annie, you deserve an Angel. And it speaks for you that you recognise them.

    Someone once says that it takes an Angel to recognise one…….

    That would mean that there a lot more out there than we think.

    But for now I am just happy you have that person in your life.


    Hey Sweetie,
    She’s a truly amazing woman. You’d love her – in fact, anyone would.


  4. Here is a freaky thing….a couple of years ago I was walking toward a fire pit that was sunk into the groud with a border of stones around it. As I approached and got close I tripped, fell forward and then stopped for like a second or even two it seemed, suspended. It was as if there was a hand on my chest pushing me back upright. I did not fall into the fire. Now, perhaps I just have far better physical skills than I had thought…but mostly I just think it was a divine moment so I thanked that angel audibly just then.

    Hey MM,
    Wow, that is an incredible story – and I’d believe it was a divine moment too. Some things you just can’t explain by the laws of physics, huh? I’m glad that helping hand was there for you.


  5. that’s a nice story and she sounds like a wonderful friend. some of us get real lucky to find out special people. i know i’m lucky!

    You know Reggie,
    in the greater scheme of things, we are all lucky. Sometimes we just have to really look to see how true that is.


  6. A lot of us take friendship for granted. Then we get stranded on a desert island for a few years, and we’re forgotten about. Then when we return, we still have no friends and we’re alone.

    That didn’t have a point, but I do have a corny statement for you:
    “WC, I don’t think that angels can be sent angels themselves.”

    See what I did there?

    Why not? Friends can send friends to friends. Really, what’s the difference? πŸ˜‰


  7. That’s such a gorgeous picture. I can almost imagine it as a stained glass window somewhere.

    I’m something of an agnostic, but I love the imagery and the idea that there’s something (or someone) watching over us when we’re in need. We take friendship for granted but it’s one of the most comforting and human things about us. And true friendship is rare indeed, and such a blessing. Thanks for the beautiful post; it was a great way to end the day. πŸ˜‰

    Hi CJ,
    I loved the picture too – the golden warmth and the simple beauty makes it very powerful. It was a beautiful moment and I wanted to share it – happily it is spreading some smiles.


  8. I have an almost identical situation. It’s magical and inspiring and I’m always in wonderment of how connection’s like this can happen with someone you’ve never met. I’ve been writing quite a lot on my blog about connections like this.

    I have to say I have found it hard at times to have never have met someone and feel for them so much- and want to believe that that feel the same way about you. Some people seem to cope better than others with computer connection’s. I have found it quite hard. ( I’m a girl that wants more )
    I know I shouldn’t BUT HEY!! Just the way I am.

    I believe in Magical and Spiritual energy, in what ever shape or from it comes.

    Smiles and connections


    Hi Di,
    I think the computer is simply the conduit. Things do happen for a reason I think. Is it fate or something else? I really don’t know but I do know that I have many friends whom I’ve never met – for whom I would do anything I could. I love them that much.


  9. I used to think that to but a few knocks down the line has left so many scars.

    I would do absoutly anything for people that I love weather I’ve met them or not. ANYTHING… Even get in to trouble. πŸ™‚

    I quess I’m just trying to understand computer connections, I used to have a very full computer life. TOO FULL. Today I don’t have a computer life as such. I just have my ( all me blog ). I have a very lonley computer life today. I actually don’t know what I did wrong ) I just support people thats all. Especially friends cause that’s what we do isin’t.Reading this post yesterday brought up so many tears for me. It reminded me of how I used to feel.I hope your connection’s remain strong and stay free.

    Hey Di,
    I understand. I have had similar experiences and because of them I was shy about starting a blog. But it has proven to be a very gratifying and fun endeavor. I think we all grow and change and sometimes the people in our lives don’t and inevitably we grow apart and lose contact. But today is a new day and there are people out there who would be delighted to know you – the only trick is in finding them. πŸ˜‰


  10. I have spent the last several weeks among those who deny the existence of any sort of spiritual world. Nonsense, I say. If there is no spiritual world, then our existence is indeed a dismal and pointless one.

    For what it’s worth, I wear my grandmother’s angel pin on the lapel of my coat, as a reminder of her and also to remind myself that there is more to the world than meets the eye.


    If I believed that this was all there was, I don’t think I’d have the heart to continue sometimes. I truly believe that it is the spiritual that keeps us going, ever so much more than the material.
