Last week I spotted this egret taking flight, and it took my breath away. He looked angelic.
As I continued to wander, I began thinking about angels…I believe in unseen beings who mysteriously come to help in just the right moment.
And I believe that we as humans sometimes serve as angels for each other as well. Not in a perfect white-winged way, but in our human way, supporting and caring for each other during our challenging times.
I thought of people who have been angels for me, too numerous to count…the friend who humbly offered sage advice when my own thinking was clouded, the young man who stopped and changed my flat tire, the friends who sat tirelessly with me as I faced a medical challenge, the little girl in the woods who offered to share her snack with me.
There have been so many angelic moments over my lifetime, and I know there are many more to come.
So today and every day I am thankful for all the human angels who have graced my life…
