Thankful for angels.

Do you have angels in your life?

I do. Or I have had them in the past. I’m not sure which is more accurate.

I am thankful for the *many* times in my life that I have needed something – whether it was an emotional or psychological need, a need for something material, or a need for an action to take place – and lo and behold… It happens.

It’s not a very tangible thing to give thanks for, unless I list the specifics of every time it has happened. That is, if I could even possibly remember every time it has happened. But if I really, really, for real, tried to list every instance of this? I would be completely overwhelmed by all of the good fortune I’ve had in my life and probably wouldn’t be able to do anything else the rest of the day. Counting your blessings is a great exercise, but I’m pretty sure listing all of mine would do me in.

So I can live my life in recognition of all this goodness, and give thanks to God for these blessings. But where I fail is giving the recognition to those angels at the time of each little miracle. Sometimes, it’s because I don’t recognize what has happened until after the fact. Most often (I think), I do express gratitude but I feel like my words are just not enough.

I will try to do better at showing my appreciation and thankfulness at every opportunity. It’s a “problem” I am blessed to have.
