Life is full of magic moments. There seem to be signs all around us, messages from beyond, to remind us of what truly matters. Children seem to inherently know what is important. Watch them play, feel them hug. Yesterday, as I sat in the hospital with my mom and John, things seemed pretty much hospital culture. Sterile, clipboards, anxious anticipation, waiting, needles. Not much magic.... until I opened my eyes. The nurses who cared for my mom were not the usual or what you might expect...no nurse Hatchet in the bunch. We had the singing nurse, the caring nurse, the angel on the wings of mercy nurse. Every one of them was full of grace and kindness. I was like, what is this? Is this real? Are these maybe angels visiting in answer to prayer? When mom went into surgery, we had two more angels greet us...Luella and Sue. I had other Circle of Nations angels call, send cards, show love. Life was full of magic moments in that place of pain. We are all so connected to spirit but if we just pass by the message, if we are in too big of a hurry to see, if we have turned off our magic sensors, given up on faith and hope, then we won't see. This incredible sign of connection that the spider weaves we will not hear. The rainbow, the unexpected smile, the beautiful lily, the hawk.... all messengers. We are loved.... listen....see.....respond. Most important, you can be someone else's angel. Try it, give love and it will heal the world at least for a moment.
