It has been quite a eventful life as I approach the middle age year mark. I am so grateful for the friends and family that have been there along the way.
My closest and dearest of those Guardian Angels would be my hubby. Although he thinks he is a bad ass he is definately not. Always there to protect us and be the rock in our family. Having the wisdom and knowledge to know the best way forward. A gentle man. A very chillaxed soul. Guardian Angel.
I recall to mind a time when I had to spend 10 weeks in hospital because I had been diagnosed with Placenta praevia. This meant that I was unable to go home until I delivered the baby. I had to be under constant observation. We lived in Kinglake and the hospital was over an hour away. It was too risky to go home. I was unable to do the very special things all new mothers enjoy like preparing the babies room. My sister in law such a practical and thoughtful women went to our home and set up the room so we did not have to worry. She has always been wonderful like that. Guardian Angel.
Another very important person in my life is my brother although never someone to pat himself on the back. He has been a constant source of love, laughter and help to us over the years. He always is first to lend a hand or give advice when needed. He is a true gentleman who is just like my father. Guardian Angel.
Many friends from childhood, school, work collegues etc. You know who you are and how much your friendship has meant to me. Again Guardian Angels who came to help me during the most stressful of times. Or people that have come into my life at perfect timing.
We all need our family and friends and you really noticed when we lose them. So please make sure you pick up the phone or email someone close to you to remind them of how special they are to you today. Life is short. Guardian Angels (Earth Angels) walk amongst us. Enjoy their light.
