My birthday was truly a celebration of love. My heart is overflowing with emotion because God has shown me today how blessed I am. Thank you for all of the warm wishes, beautiful words, and awesome reminders that I serve a Risen Savior and Living God! Each of you have given me another memory which I will treasure forever! I am so happy I am alive and able to enjoy life, and I am thankful for each of you who shared my day with me! There were several times today that I was brought to tears.
This morning, Cason and I were being a little lazy, and I heard a noise outside my window. I looked out, and one of my neighbors and his grandson were in my front yard. I got up and went outside (barefooted as a yard dog). The gentleman and his grandson greeted me with, “Happy Birthday!” To my surprise the gentleman was pulling weeds, which needed doing badly; and the young man was spreading pine straw. They were doing this out of the kindness of their hearts.
About an hour later, I heard the patter of little feet and a knock on my door. When I opened the door, three precious little ones were standing there with beautiful smiles on their faces. They had brought me homemade ice cream and a precious homemade birthday card. They all said, “Happy Birthday,” and I asked if I could have a hug. After I received three sweet hugs and thanked them, they quickly left. By the time I turned to come back inside, the tears had started to flow. When I read their awesome card, I was a completely blithering mess.
If you don’t believe in angels here on earth, I can make a believer out of you. God knows how hard holidays, birthdays, and celebrations are for me now, and He sent five angels to me today. My children, grandchildren, and friends have been my guardian angels. Every day we are in the presence of angels, and we can be His angels! All we have to do is keep our eyes and ears open and keep our hearts, hands, and feet ready and be his “tools” here on earth. Guardian angels come in all shapes, sizes, colors, and species. They do little things and large things. The beauty is they help and save us!
