National Be An Angel Day is August 22. Have You Spread Your Wings Lately?

 

Have you ever wished or hoped that there was an angel standing by you when angelyou were in need of help or feeling down?

In some form or fashion, I believe that angels do exist but perhaps not how we envision them...floating in the air with outspread wings.

 

I think there are angels within us, or at least the ability to be angel-like.

We are each of us angels with only one wing, and we can only fly by embracing one another. Luciano De Crescenzo

 

Short story...many years ago when I found out we were moving to Florida I was devastated. This was the first time I was going to be living so far away from my family.  

 

I was greeted with sad comments about how much I’d be missed from all those I told. It was also accompanied by their sharing thoughts of having to leave Houston and all my friends. Every comment was bringing me down.

 

I was in a deep funk until one day I walked into my office. A friend who’d been out of town had not yet heard the news of my move. When I told her, this is what she said…

 

Kathy, I’m so excited for you! What an exciting adventure you’ll be on!!! And...I’ve always wanted to live in Florida.

 

Those few words were all it took. My attitude changed immediately. That day, she was the Angel I needed. 

 

Remember how you felt when someone told you how much you mean to them, or when a stranger smiled and let you go before them in a line. 

 

Being an angel rarely costs you money or even time unless you want it to. And the rewards to you and to your recipient cannot be measured. 

 

A smile that says hello...a pat on the back that says everything will be ok...a wink to say I feel your pain...Angel activities!

 

Spread your wings and be an angel to someone, not just this day but every day. 




You don't have to be an angel, just be someone who can give. Patti LaBelle

Good morning, Kathy.... I've never thought of myself as an angel. This quote by Patti LaBelle totally defines my philosophy of life. We can all find ways to give, both little and large.

Good morning Kathy, this is so true.  And I really do believe this scripture (Hebrews 13:2) "Do Not neglect to extend hospitality to strangers (especially among the family of believers - being friendly, cordial, and gracious, sharing the comforts of our home and doing your part generously), for by this some have entertained angels without knowing it."  We should always be friendly, cordial, and gracious!

Good morning, Kathy - as you know, I'm no angel but it doesn't mean I don't try to be good and kind often.  It's a moment by moment activity and it's definitely a work-in-progress.

I loved this post Kathy. I try to focus on kindness every morning, hoping I'll act kindly throughout the day. This morning I again served breakfast at Glide; over 600 breakfasts are served 364 days a year. I'm one drop in the bucket, but perhaps I fluttered my angel wing a bit.

Nina Hollander I agree. Each one of us can help someone in some way. 

Graziella Bruner what a lovely quote.  Just think if every one of us followed this.

Michael Jacobs all of us have work to do in that regard. My wings droop quite often.

Morning Kathy.

Been there many times, I know there is life beyond what we know.  Angels, IMHO do exist.
