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?

Yes i agree with you Melvin. I think that it is really important to be yourself and even if we are only ordinary people, it is amazing and very touching that we can be a gift to others. and having a good heart is the key to that.

My best friend has been such an angel to me, but I'm sure that she has never thought of it like that. I don't know if I've ever been an angel to anyone, but that is okay. I try my best to always be quick to give a smile, and a kind word, and to not get angry with people too quickly. We never know what someone is going through, or what action they may need that will allow us to be an angel in thier lives at exactly that moment. I hope that I have been, but if I havne't yet, I will continue to do what I can to make the world even a tiny bit brighter.

I really appreciated the line that I can be a gift myself just by being me. Well it's true because oftentimes we think of how can we make impacts on the life of others, but the simple truth is we can just by being with them, by just being ourselves, just by being me, Melvin.

I have already given my best friend an angel figurine and she also gave me two angel figurines. my other friends do that also and i have already received a lot of angel figurines which is very important to me.

well, i think sometimes i do give people gifts through my good deeds. i consider myself as an angel to other people. and i also consider my family as my angels because they are good people. and it is true that when you do something good for others, you will be an angel to them.

This is a good question. I have realized a lot of things because of this article. Well maybe I haven't done it that's why I'm feeling a little guilty. But in terms of lending a helping hand, I always do it especially when it's obvious they need it.

I haven't, but my girlfriend once gave me a small gemstone that had some impurities in it that looked vaguely like an angel. It was an adventurine gem I think, dark green and opaque.
