Give People The Gift of Angels
I have a confession to make: I love to give people gifts! Birthdays, holidays or just any occasion. I am happy to celebrate my relationships.
Often I will give people that I know the gift of angels in some form. Recently I found some beautiful angel pins with gemstones on them. What a wonderful way for people to carry their angels with them as they go about their day! So I bought about a dozen of them and sent them out to friends and family “just because” to share that good ol’ angel love.
There are many ways you can share the gift of angels. Sometimes you are actually the gift with what you do. By being present and helping someone—often you can wind up doing the work of the angels. If you help an elderly neighbor with their grocery shopping, that’s a gift of the angels. Or if you watch a friend’s young children for a few hours, that certainly counts as the gift of the angels (for angels nonetheless!) Often you don’t have to spend a lot of time or even a tremendous amount of effort to do the angels’ work. Sometimes you just have to be kind and listen.
How can you give the gift of angels in your life? Have you given the gift of angels to someone? Has someone been a true angel to you?

"I understand what you mean by it not always being easy to love others, and also that a lot of people can't seem to do it. We have to realize that our feelings don't control us. We control them. We can choose to love others. And that can be difficult sometimes, especially after you've been hurt or rejected."
I agree with this Crystal. Yes it is not really that easy to give love to others. There are people who will hurt, betray and even hate us. But even if it is hard to accept what they think of you, we still need to try to love them, even if it is hard because when you give love even to those who are rude to you, you will still feel that you are a good person because despite of those rudeness, you still give them back love. And that is very important. You will always be blessed for what you give to others.

I agree Melvin, angels do bring friendships and love. they are just like a bridge that will link us to other people and to those who really believe in them.

Very nice story Karen. Wow, you have a very kind neighbor. It is good that you now share the same garden together and you have been doing really good by putting some angels in your garden. I think it is really good to the eyes. and at the same time, you are making people smile.

Well, i really can not specify what place where people are selfish. Maybe there are places where people can not just give love to others but i think there are still those who do that, whether in urban or rural place.

I think there are really people that are sent to this earth to be angels. I always lend a helping hand when I can and I feel so much better afterwards. But there are people that just keep giving and giving until they are down to their last penny.

Another thing, Angels are often giving gifts themselves that people tend to overlook or just think of as a coincidence. Several times certain books just happened to fall right under my nose, and those books ended up getting me through hard times and inspiring me.

I thnk I understand what you mean by it not always being easy to love others, and also that a lot of people can't seem to do it. We have to realize that our feelings don't control us. We control them. We can choose to love others. And that can be difficult sometimes, especially after you've been hurt or rejected. But it is a choice. There are times when I'm at the store and I don't feel well, or someone has been particuliarly rude or hateful to me. I don't feel like giving a smile to the next person or especially that person, but I'm learning to try to push past how I feel and to do what I know is going to be right. And it usually doesnt' take long for your feelings to catch up to your choice.

Karen nice to hear that. By the way what do you mean by saying collecting angels? Angel figures? You're right, angel brings friendship and closeness to most people. It is something that I am always amazed about. That's the value of angels at its best.

When I moved to my apartment complex I noticed that some people had set up little gardens in front of their doors.It seemed like something was missing,so i asked my neighbor if she liked angels and she said she collected angels.I told her I moved from a house and took my garden angels with me even though i didn,t know what I was going to do with them.I asked her if I could put them among her flowers.They look great.We have become great neighbors since then.It,s been a year and we have added more angels to our garden,(yes our garden)She has even given me some little crystal angels which I have in my inside collection.
The other neighbors are always commenting on the pretty angels.I think that angels bring big smiles and new friendships into place.
I love you Sylvia.You are my angel.
