I used to have a large collection of angels. I had them surrounding my life...on my mantle, over my kitchen sink, on my nightstand, and even hanging on my walls. It was nice to be able to see those reminders constantly and it gave me that safe feeling that I was searching for. About 4 years ago I got rid of all of them and sold them for about 10 cents a peice at a garage sale. It saddened me to get rid of them but I felt like I did not need those constant reminders anymore. Lately, I've been seeing angels everywhere....It's one of those things that if I'm at a store or even another garage sale, it makes me stop in my tracks to look at the beauty of an angel. I love them and I love the way they make me feel.
I was skyping with my sister this morning and we were discussing the things we always talk about...kids and husbands. But just recently, our coversations have taken a turn in a different direction. My sisters oldest son was just diagnosed with Asbergers Syndrome which is a form of Autism. Everything she thought was important a year ago is now null and void. Brian has become the center of her heart and trying to get him all the help he needs to live a long, meaningful life. I sat there watching her face as she talked about Brian and as she read me some information regarding Asbergers and my heart filled with the same feeling I feel everytime I see one of those beautuful angels at Hobby Lobby. She loves unconditionally...no matter what. Her love for her children made me see the reason why I love angels so much. It's love. They love me and watch over me just like Karen loves and watches over her children.
I think I'll start my collection again.
