""Oh, the comfort, the inexpressible comfort of feeling safe with a person; having neither to weigh thoughts nor measure words, but to pour them out, chaff and grain together, knowing that a faithful hand will take and sift them, keep what is worth keeping, and then, with the breath of kindness, blow the rest away."
~ Dinah Mulock Craik, A Life for a Life, 1859
In a lifetime, there are one or two people who come into our lives who give inexpressible comfort. Usually, they appear when we need them the most... And they stay as long as we need them.
These rare souls, with a breath of kindness, bring joy and meaning to life. In an uncertain world, these angels faithfully comfort and make subtle positive change. "Angels," said writer Andrew Greeley, "represent God's personal care for each of us."
Miraculously, with life's passionate colors, each of us is an angel who can open our heart to others and make this world a better place for those we love.
Therapist Virginia Satir once said, "I believe the greatest gift I can conceive of having from anyone is to be seen, heard, understood, and touched by them. The greatest gift I can give is to see, hear, understand, and touch another person."
Celebrate those who matter today. Share your heart. Reach out to others with peace and love.

This is one thing we can do as a resolution for next year - that will be easy to do - be some one's angel. Be some one's wind beneath their wing -
I've had angels (real woman) hold me up when I thought I couldn't go on - and we need to share that with others. Something I've found too - a loss doesn't go away in 6 or 8 weeks - a loss can go on for a long time - and maybe one's persons loss wouldn't be something that would be ours - no matter - let's go out there and be supportive and fly!
