My Guardian Angel

    It has been a while since I have posted anything, for a variety of reasons, not the least being, that my lap top crashed on me, and alas a replacement was recommended as being a fiscally responsible avenue to explore. Another Toshiba Satellite now suffers under my heavy-handedness. I’m not sure if I like Windows 8 yet, you see,  I loved 7 and 8 is different to be sure. But, I’m assured by the Best Buy Geek Squad that it is a far more secure operating system than Windows 7 so I’ll have to live with it I guess.

But, back to the post, I finished this recently after an introspective look at my life, (I had nothing better to do) and I realized just how fortunate and blessed I have truly been, and this is the result of that reflection.

I hope that you all have a Guardian Angel that works as hard as mine.

     Have a safe day,


 Let us give thanks unto God

Lord thank you for my Guardian Angel

My Guardian Angel

An angel shares

my every step

and has

for all my days.

An angel has kept me

from all harm,

in spite of

reckless ways.

An angel watches

over me,

and beside me

always stays.


My angel performs

above and beyond,

and merits

all my praise.

My angel is a gift

from God,

Whom did my needs


Then my angel was chosen

just for me,

and thus deserves

one heavenly raise!

    You are so very gifted. Don’t respond a joke. I’m serious. Sean told me today he is coming home tomorrow.
