I believe

I posted this on Friday...Saturday...now today...if it does not stay today..I will forget it...More on the rest of the weekend later tonight..

I believe in angels,
the kind that heaven sends,
I'm always surrounded by angels,
better known as friends!

I like this quote, but I believe that our friends are those people that we’re are matched up with to provide mutual support of each other during everyday life. While the “angels” that come into our lives are the ones that could be our friends but because of life situations and events we only encounter them for short periods of time……These people seem to come into our lives when we least expect it and when we need it the most because we are at a crossroads or at a turning point. They are that little extra nudge or push to keep us going on the right track.

Usually, I think, these people don’t even realize what they have provided to us…they are just living their life and the way that they do it and share with us at the time that we encounter them is what has such an influence on us. They are people that encourage us and provide us with hope by just being them and being open about who they are.

I recently met someone like that and it happened at a time when I told myself “OK this is it….You need to get off your butt and start on becoming the person you want to be and stop making excuses?”

I have wonderful support day in and day out by some very special friends and my family and I don’t discount that at all. But this person just provided that little extra spotlight to help me say ok “KEEP going…KEEP working on it….KEEP moving forward, because there is more….there is more out there”. I know these things…my friends and family remind me of this….but sometimes I think everyone of us just need that extra something that resonates in us brought out by someone or something else.

I don’t expect to see this person again anytime soon but I will remember that person and the things that made me think. I will keep reminding myself of what I learned because it is important and I don’t want to take it for granted that I will “learn” it again.

Our friends are those that we are lucky enough to hold onto….our “angels” are those that we are lucky enough to bump into…to my most recent “angel” I would like to say THANK YOU ...but then they would probably just think I was crazy…..I just hope they know that they are special. I wish them the best of luck.
