My Gaurdian Angels

Michael and I were discussing wether or not each person had a gaurdian angel. My initial thought was no, but that God does put his angels in our lives when we need them. Then I got to thinking about the most difficult time in my life, when I went through a bout of anxiety. If you have never experienced, I hope to God you never do. If you have, then you know that it is a horrible experience. Through my anxiety, God used people to nurse me back to health. These people are my gaurdian angels. To my mother and father who literally nursed me back to health and held my hand in support, you are my gaurdian angels. To my sisters and brothers who only gave me words of encouragement, you were my gaurdian angels. To my friends, Amber and Amanda who literally conspired together on how to make me better, and who I am sure offered up many prayers on my behalf, you were my gaurdian angels. Amanda actually shed tears on my behalf because she wanted me to be ok, now that is an angel. To Becky who prayed relentlessly because she knows what anxiety is, you are my gaurdian angel. And ofcourse to my church family who knows of the situation I was in and prayed for my wellbeing, you are my gaurdian angels. Alliebug, whose little smile seemed to make everything ok, you are my gaurdian angel. And last but not least, my precious husband Michael, who never gave up on me, never met me with words of discouragement, never looked at me like I was crazy, and promised me that I would be ok, you are my gaurdian angel. Gaurdian angels do not have to be celestial beings. They are sometimes simply God's people doing God's work. None of these people I am sure have ever thought of themselves as my angels, but God put you in my life for a reason, and you have all truly helped me through some difficult times. I love you all so much and am so thankful for the roles that each of you play in my life.
