Angels

Something happened today that I thought was worth sharing. I have been in a down mood. I tend to not talk about it when it happens because that is not what this blog is about. I want to keep the blog positive and I don't come here to tell you about my complaints. Okay, so I was down and had lost some faith as we all do from time to time. I needed a bit of sparkle and today I received it. I had a flat tire. Then I changed the tire with the help of a neighbor, then went to have the tire repaired. Only the spare tire became flat on the way to the mechanics. I pulled off into a gas station and wondered what I would do next. Four bikers (angels) came and asked if I needed help. They had the old tire fixed, the spare off and the fixed tire back on in about 10 minutes. They were there right when I needed them. All of life can work that way if we remember that help is there and open ourselves to it. I had let myself forget how magical and
sweet life can be. Today I was reminded. That flat tire was a gift. XOXO
P.S. Sweet Pea and T are in love :-).

It is always wondrous and strange when the help comes that way. I had one vivid experience in Stamford's South end when I was at the Community of St Luke off loading a donation of furniture. The items were very heavy. We were well established and knew everyone down there. Suddenly a huge man comes and asks if he come help. Of course we said yes. We had never seen him before and never saw him again, obviously an angel.

Your angels are now angels for us all, just with that beautiful story. Hope you are well, even in the gloom.

Definitely worth sharing. This really is the way the world works, but it can be so easy to forget sometimes.

I love it when we can be angels to one another. Great that your tyre situation got sorted so quickly and so well. I reckon that karma thing is doing the rounds your way. :-)
