Your Angel on Earth by Gabby


First I have to say, *I did not write this! It’s something that is beautiful to share though and it needs shared. How did this story come to be in my possession? That’s a very nice story in itself, about 15 or so years ago…Our Dad found it and made copies for all of us 6 daughters. I think that was such a beautiful thought and a loving thing to do, a living tribute to our Mom. That’s the way Dad was…He loved our Mom very much. Even though we honored and loved Mom, Dad wanted us all to have this special reminder. Since our Dad is in Heaven now, all I keep thinking is how proud he is of us 6 daughters. We all look after our Mom when she lets us, (She can be a bit stubborn) we all love her to pieces. It isn’t always easy for her and I despise evil cancer for taking our Dad away. Dad and Mom were joined at the soul, a feeling I understand all too well. One of the saddest things Mom said to me 8 years ago, after we lost both Dad and Dave (my husband). Mom said never did she ever think her and I would end up widows, losing them both to the same evil cancer & 40 days apart. I digressed a bit, but I wanted to get it all said. So, here  is the beautiful story  now to share with all of you kind readers. Some of you maybe already have read this story. To us it was magic because “La Famiglia e tutto”, that’s in Italian, in English it means “Family is Everything”. So please do enjoy this story and let Autumn and I know your thoughts if you would like to share. 🙂 The title is of course “Your Angel on Earth“. The author is unknown.

A child preparing to be born asked God, “They tell me you are sending me to earth tomorrow, but how am I going to live there being so small and helpless?” God answered, “Among the many angels, I chose one for you. She will be waiting for you and will take care of you.”
The child paused and again addressed God, “But tell me, here in Heaven, I don’t do anything else but sing and smile, that’s enough for me to be happy.” Your angel will sing to you and also smile for you everyday, and you will feel your angel’s love and be happy.” “Oh,” the child said “and how am I going to be able to understand when people talk to me if I don’t understand the language that men speak?” And then glancing at God the child asked, “What am I going to do when I want to talk to you?” God softly touched the child on the head and said, “Your angel will place your hands together and will teach you how to pray.” The child then asked.”I have heard that on earth there is evil. Who will protect me?” “Ah,” God answered, “your angel will defend you even if it means risking her own life.”

The child said to God, “But I will always be sad because I will not see you anymore.” “Your angel will always talk to you about me and will teach you the way for you to come back to me, even though I will always be next to you,” God explained. At that moment there was much peace in Heaven, but voices from earth could already be heard, and the child in a hurry asked softly, “God, if I am about to leave now, please tell me my angel’s name.” Sweetly God looked at the child and whispered, Your angel’s name is of no importance. You will simply call her MOM.”

Heavenly Falls ~ by Autumn Sunshine


The name is called Heavenly Falls

The birds sing their beautiful calls

the flowers bloom so bright

all is airy and light

The magic lives

and seems to give

the very place a shine

of gold and silver so fine

Those that visit stop and wonder

if that one noise is thunder …

hmmm, they say

and doesn’t seem to sound that way

So rumor has it’s a bowling game

and not so very tame

it’s the magic, the fairies and all

the angels, too

love Heavenly Falls

the place is so grand

and a pair of unicorns stand

or sometimes they dance

and prance

it’s a unicorn romance 😉

a lovely stop in the forest, it’s so

all that visit will always know

that no matter what goes

the magic will grow

and show

you how to smile …

Angel ornaments and Dave… ~Gabby Angel


I got out my ornaments today, in hopes of getting my Christmas tree decorated. Doing kind of OK until I opened one box. There they were, the lovely silver angel ornaments my husband Dave had gotten for me. It was in 2001, he died May 30th of 2003.

There are a half dozen beauful angels, very unusal and I loved them upon first sight. He got to enjoy them with me for two Christmases…That’s a happy memory. Big mistake on trying for the tree being decorated today, it’s exactly 8 & 1/2 years to the day I lost him to that evil beast cancer.

I try not to pay attention to the 30th of every month, but I usually fail. That may sound rather strange to some people. It’s just the way I am, I make no apologizes for my feelings about Dave to anyone. Anyway, these angel ornaments…Just looking at them reduced me to tears again. The tears dripped onto the angels making me feel even worse. Such a beautiful and loving gift, I feel guilty because Dave doesn’t want me to be sad. I miss him… he was my husband, soulmate and to be taken so young.

It is more difficult at the holidays…It always is, sadly I never quite get used to that. I ended up putting all my ornaments away, maybe tomorrow I will be able to decorate the tree. Maybe tomorrow…I will feel stronger. Maybe tomorrow I won’t cry. Maybe the angel ornaments will work their magic and I can smile. Some days are just more difficult than others. Anyone reading Autumn’s and my blog, you must realize I am an optimistic person.I strive to somehow reach for the upside, the positive. To find a degree of happiness and joy every single day I am alive.Unless you have felt my loss, which I wish on nobody…I suppose it’s hard to understand.

I will round up my twinnie to help me decorate the tree. Autumn will help me make it more joyful, perhaps we will find things to laugh about. We can hang those angel ornaments up together. She is my twin sister, I am blessed…I never take that for granted, never. She knows how I am feeling and helps me as she has been doing since Dave was diagnosed in 1998. Thank you twinnie, for always being there for me…I love you, TF <3=Twins Forever.

The Angel Collection … Written by Gabby Angel


The Collection

It keeps growing. I thought of this just today, when I made my dusting rounds. Again promising myself I didn’t really need anymore. I have so many angels, the statue variety I mean.

Guardian Angel

Also  a guardian angel, who is always hanging with me. I can’t see her, but sure do hear her loud and clear sometimes. I also hear tell I have a few more that tend to hang around me, too. Which is a blessing, I can use all the help I can get.

Calm and happy

About my angel statues, it’s a fairly large collection. I have them scattered all around my house. A large white ceramic angel sets outside my door, standing guard so to speak. I know she’s a special angel … So far nobody has been tempted to make off with  her! 😉

These angels really do bring me comfort, and an unexplained calmness. Off and on over the years I have picked up statues of these beautiful beings. When when of them catches my eye and not all of them do by the way. For the ones who speak to me, I just need to buy that particular one and it and bring it on home with me. Most of them are quite unique in some way, I am not really drawn to the line produced variety. If I’m going to collect something, I have to do it my way.

Angels Everywhere 🙂

My husband Dave could pick out an angel here and there, he had the touch. Autumn also actually had one comissoned for me as a surpise one Christmas. It’s a hanging type, fairly large stained glass angel. 🙂  It is simply the most beautiful one I have ever seen, I will always cherish this angel she is a special on for sure.

I of course have a few pairs of angel earrings, being the collector of earrings, too. A couple of my angel globes are pretty awesome, each one plays a different tune. Having some shelves and cabinets here and there are quite handy for housing some of my angels. From time to time I look around, telling myself I don’t need anymore.

I try to resist the urge to multiply my collection, but some of them just seem to be calling out to me. In silent words maybe only I can hear 😉 I was kind of reaching on that excuse, No I don’t hear voices! No one needs to worry about me, honestly. 😉

Seriously, I could be collecting a lot weirder things…So far, I am finding plenty of space for them. From time to time I have given angels as gifts, especially to my nieces. They have been very well received, especially the one niece. I think I have her hooked, she’s got a very nice little collection going of her own by now.

My stuffed angel bear…It was  given to me by  my husband, that one  has a special place of honor. It sits on my own little childhood rocking chair. Anyway, I just love angels I am sure my collection will keep growing. I really and truly do just love my angels…My statues and also the ones I can’t see.  I have lots of books about angels and yes, I know and I’ve read quite a lot.

Remember

The angels we don’t see, or perhaps entertain unknowingly are the very best kind. 11:11
