We Walk Among Angels

I am a firm believer that angels walk among us.  To me an angel is someone who has endured hardships and has come out of the difficult times with understanding and grace.  The angel that walks among us knows only love and compassion and both listens and teaches with utter attentiveness.

Personally, I have been blessed to have crossed the path of many of angels.  Regardless if it is in line at the supermarket, the hairdresser, or on an interview, their words lighten your heart and put a smile on your face.

Whether you are a believer in God or not, that is your choice, I am not one to force my religious beliefs on anyone.  But I do believe that he is quite busy and has many angels here on earth, sending hope and encouragement to those who will take notice.

When you meet an angel, all you have to do is listen.  You might hear some sound words of advice for that particular problem you are having trouble understanding.  It might be that person, who is the jokester and constantly tells jokes about everything, and the lesson might just be to lighten up and not take life too seriously, or it might pass you by.

You will find old, young and middle-aged angels.  They have been there and done that.  They are handpicked because of the unique qualities that they possess.  These are the people that amaze me.  Just when you’ve seen it all, their courage and strength shine through.  It is during their moment of weakness that they draw inner strength to rise above the situation and take control of their destiny.  Their hardships don’t harden their soul; it gives them a voice for others to be heard.

Sure, you might have another synonym for the word, angel.  That is why you must always treat people, how you would like to be treated, and never talk down to someone because you never know when you are speaking face to face with an angel.

My journey through life has brought me along the path of one of those angels.  She is an incredible, courageous woman.  Here name is Linda Walls and her book is, “Surviving Heartbreak Valley,” which is available on
