What do Angels look like?

You probably have experienced like me, when someone touched your life in such a way that you were sure they had to be an Angel sent from above. Well, I do believe that is exactly what we are suppose to be to those around us. I loved this poem, what a great reminder to look around and really see what Angels look like, you might be surprised. Good night dear friends!




Like the little old lady who returned your wallet yesterday.
Like the taxi driver who told you that your eyes light up the world when you smile.
Like the small child who showed you the wonder in simple things.
Like the poor man who offered to share his lunch with you.
Like the rich man who showed you that it really is all possible, if only you believe.
Like the stranger who just happened to come along, when you had lost your way.
Like the friend who touched your heart, when you didn't think you had one to touch.
Angels come in all sizes and shapes, all ages and skin types and colors.
Some with freckles, some with dimples, some with wrinkles, some without.
They come disguised as friends, enemies, nurses, teachers, students, lovers, and fools.
They don't take life too seriously.
They travel light.
They leave no forwarding address.
They ask nothing in return.
They wear sneakers and gossamer wings.
They get a deal on dry cleaning.
They are hard to find when your eyes are closed, but, they are everywhere you look when you choose to see.

"Be an angel to someone else whenever you can, as a way of thanking God for the help your angel has given you"  ~ Eileen Elias Freeman

"If we were all like angels, the world would be a heavenly place.'  ~Author Unknown

"Anyone can be an angel."  ~Author Unknown
