Sorry my post is 2 days late but i promise it will be a good one. Well at least in my opinion it is something really close to my heart and so I wanted to share it with you.
So if you watched the LDS General Conference, than I'm sure you witnessed the heart breaking incident with President Thomas S. Monson as he concluded his final talk. Now if you go on social media at all than I'm sure that you have been able to read about the touching incident with President Uchtdorf who was silently and in the darkness behind Monson with his arms out wide ready to catch him. After reading of this touching and emotional incident it got me thinking. I know without a doubt that we have angels round about us at all times and in all things and in all places. Ready to help us at any moment. They are there even when we cannot see them and they were sent to us straight from our Heavenly Father. Something even more amazing and something I hope that all of you will come to realize is that not only do we have heavenly angels round about us but we are sent earthly angels that are sent to us at the right times and in the right places. There are people that will come into our lives just in times of need and they will be that strength and support that we need. I know that everyone comes into our lives for a reason and although you may not know it or be aware of it, there are people that are watching you every day. They are learning from you and they are thanking their father in heaven that you were sent to them in such a time of need. You will never truly know the impact that you had on this world, and I promise it was way more than once that you had a lasting impact.
I have had many of this beautiful and life saving angels sent to me in my life. I had a friend in High School who me and him became very close my senior year and we had so much fun together! We could tell each other everything and I confided in him often! He always was there when I needed him and brought so much laughter and joy to my life. He will never know how much he impacted me in a time when I felt pretty alone he never faltered to be there to lift me up. I will always owe him for how much he did for me even though he had no clue he was doing anything at all.
I had another friend when I was younger in elementary school and Jr High that brought so much joy to my life. Me and her were inseparable and there was never a moment we weren't laughing or smiling. We had no cares in the world! We didn't let anyone's opinions get in the way of who we were or who we wanted to be. On one occasion we dressed up and went in her basement and had a photo shoot we had our hair all curled and fancy. I look back on those pictures and if you were to look at it you would see two crazy girls who didn't let the world bring them down. Those pictures still make me laugh to this day and unfortunately I moved away during Jr High and haven't seen her in almost 5 years but I still think about her often and we still talk a little bit back and forth through messaging or phone calls but that girl was a major part of who I am and how I view life. She is so full of love and laughter and it lights up every room she goes into.
My parents are another great example of angels sent to me in my life! I could not have gotten anywhere in life without them and I'm so thankful for all that they have taught me and shown me in my short life. I know that I will continue to grow and learn from them and that the love I have for them will get even stronger and deeper. I am so blessed to have such a great opportunity in my lifetime and to be blessed with such great parents.
I could go on and on for hours about angels sent to me in my life but I won't don't worry! :) However, I know that I have been blessed with so amazing friends and amazing people in my life. I encourage all of you just sometime throughout the day that you will think about about all the angels that have been sent to you in your life and in times of need. As you do this you will see the hand of the lord and how he has constantly touched your life.
I know that he constantly watches over us and although we may feel like we are hidden under a pavillion we just have to outreach our hand and we will see his light shine through into our lives. Keep your head up and have a great day! I know that you are loved by many and that you will go so far in this life if you put your mind to it! You can do the impossible with the hand of the lord in your life!
