I Beleive There Are Angels Among Us Blog Hop


Oh I believe there are angels among us
Sent down to us from somewhere up above.
They come to you and me in our darkest hours.
To show us how to live to teach us how to give.
To guide us with the light of love.

I know for myself, that I have a guardian angel watching over me as she is my very own precious child that I had lost in 1991 and she would have been 23 years old today. Strange how comforting it is to know that someone watches over us in sew many ways.

When life held troubled times, and had me down on my knees.
There’s always been someone there to come along and comfort me.
A kind word from a stranger, to lend a helping hand.
A phone call from a friend, just to say I understand.

Today's hop may be the story of our own Guardian Angel who watches over us, the beauty of angels, or just expressing kind words. The craft blogging world is phenomenal as sharing loving thoughts and caring towards others.

We have fabulous sponsors today

 For my project I wasn't sure what to do then last week I lost a very dear Aunt so I thought a layout would be a good thing. She would have been 89 next Sunday and I am still j\having trouble wrapping my head around this. She and I celebrated our birthdays every year on Labor Day at an annual family picnic. Her birthday was September 2nd and mine is the 3rd. I haven't found the right picture of her to put on theis page so it waits.

I used a Peachy Keen Stamp set called 'Our 2 Angels in Heaven" colored with coloring pencils. The paper is from from a pack by 'atd' i bought at Tuesday Morning for a song! I typed the title on my computer then cut it with my E2 using CTMH Art Philosophy carttridgealong wit q mat for it The photo mat was made with paper from my stash. I am going to share a poem written by my Aunt's oldest grandson just to shawre how very special she was,
