We are each of us angels with only one wing, and we can only fly by embracing one another. ~Luciano de Crescenzo
No day should ever be passed in our life without knowing that an angel intervened in some small way, nor should it ever go unappreciated. In ways that we cannot always fathom with logic, angels descend like a mist over our darkest moments bringing forth a light that lifts us from the shadows.
A few weeks ago, I woke up in the middle of the night to find myself gripped in fear and an overwhelming feeling of sadness. I lay there tossing and turning while thoughts battered me with endless accusations and judgment. I felt so alone. While lying there, feeling the weight of the world and knowing I needed sleep, my body would not relax. I remember thinking, “God please just help me get to sleep and let go of whatever has this hold on me” –that is when I heard the first bell softly ring.
My Smartphone is set to let me know whenever I receive a new email. In this case, it is the email that I use for my blog. Whenever the bell rings, I know that some person somewhere in the world has thought enough of my post to “like it” or comment. It was interesting that in the midst of my battle with my own doubts and fears, these “bells” rang over some word or two that resonated with someone else, somewhere. What’s more interesting is that they continued for the next few minutes, quietly in the night. As I laid there listening, I thought how appropriate that a bell should ring with the small act of kindness and appreciation. I thought of you, the many angels that let me know how much my little blog means to you. Resting in this comfort, my body finally relaxed as I drifted off to sleep.
The blogosphere, the web of soul where we each dare to spin our threads of thought, inspires us to share and reach out in a way a normal meeting in the street might not bare. We only have words and a few pictures in which to reveal ourselves and share what are our passions and joys, but it brings a unique unity.
This post is to thank each and every “special” person who visits my blog. I know how much I enjoy visiting yours. I also want to thank those bloggers who have nominated me for the awards within the last few weeks. It means so much. Please know that for the next couple of weeks I will be a little scarce. I am having to concentrate on finals at school, but I have not forgotten your kind gestures and will accept the awards as soon as I can.
Every time the bell rings-I think of you.
Very beautiful post!
Thanks Gaye-I miss you!
A lot of wisdom wrapped in a little post. Nicely done …
Thank you Jamie.
I don’t know if you read my post this week called Something Happened, but I knew that it was an angel or God that placed that cross next to my pillow. I believe very much in angels
I will read your post. There have been too many things that have happened in my life to dismiss that we are alone.
Thank you for your lovely comment.
