Tender Moments: An Angel Message


Angels can deliver messages of love to our hearts in such a perfect way that at times their gift is emotionally overwhelming.  That's what happened to me yesterday.  During the  hot summer days, I often walk back to the den window and look out at the meditation garden.  My eyes search for a frequent guest who likes to nap on the old butterfly bench.  Gus, our stray orange tabby, has a rust and white striped tail that he tucks around him while he sleeps. I love the way he makes himself at home.  Aloof, he is a rebel, not looking for a handout, only a hangout.

Yesterday as I stood at the window, there was no Gus. Instead, my eyes widened at the sight of a colorful insect in flight, heading towards me.  Widespread red wings were translucent in the morning sunshine.  It was beautiful.  There was a stir in my soul as I HOPED it was a LADYBUG!  I don't recall ever seeing a ladybug flying in the light! But, quickly I accused myself of wishful thinking.

Then it happened.

 She landed on the tall wild beauty bush outside my window!  I wanted to make doubly sure it was a ladybug.  To my surprise, she accommodated my wish.  This red winged messenger flew off the bright green leaf and onto the windowpane where I stood in plain sight.

A LADYBUG!  I marveled.

Life is beautiful in every moment.  Ladybugs are my special sign that my dear mother is still with me. The timing of her message seemed so deliberate that I shed a few joyful tears.   First, at being able to see the beauty of such a tiny winged messenger in flight; and, second, the joy that life is eternal.

Enjoy your day!  Thanks, Angels for all you do to guide, comfort and bless each of us.

Love and joyful blessings,
