we are surrounded by angels and that we are unaware of it most of the time.
They touch our lives in the form of family, friends, neighbors, even strangers.
This Christmas my family received many unexpected blessings and all of our needs were provided for.
The very last gift I opened on Christmas morning was from a lady that I haven't known for very long and had never received a gift from before. It was a beautiful little angel looking up toward the sky with a sash that read in plain writing:
ANGELS WATCHING OVER YOU
It brought tears to my eyes because this is exactly what I was feeling. To me this was more than a gift, but a message to confirm just what it conveyed.
Above is a picture of a snowman nodder that I added angel wings to for a girlfriend's birthday recently. On the tag I wrote "Old friends are like angels, precious and rare".
My hope for the upcoming new year on this Christmas evening is that we can all slow down enough to realize our blessings. There is always something or someone to be thankful for.
