I have always wondered whether Angels exist. Depending on religious beliefs, Angels can descend from Heaven to protect us from harm or enable something good to happen. If this belief is true, why do we experience setbacks, emotional pain, and misfortunes? What constitutes the parameters surrounding their descend? And why can’t we see them?
This past weekend my daughter attempted to learn to ride her bike without training wheels. She understood the concept, but her fear of falling prevented her from successfully riding. She would pedal for a second and then stop. Over and over. After two days, she was still unsuccessful as her fear consumed her thoughts.
The next day marked the six year anniversary of Cory’s passing. I distinctly asked my daughter that morning whether her mother ever appeared before her. Not that I really expected her to, yet I was still curious. Perhaps children can see Angels. My daughter simply responded no. That was it, nothing more to the conversation.
That afternoon, my daughter came home and decided at the last moment to try riding her bike without training wheels. Several attempts later, she was successfully riding!
Imagine, the same day of her mother’s passing is the same day she successfully learned to ride without training wheels.
There can only be one explanation. An Angel, my daughter’s mother, is watching over her. Perhaps on this emotional day, despite us not being able to see her, her presence was felt. She gave us a gift on this very day to help forever soften our landing.
I have always wondered whether Angels exist. Now I don’t have to. They are always watching over us awaiting for the right time to descend. All I can say, from the bottom of my heart, thank you…
Believe in Angels and “keep those feet moving.”
