In the Arms of An Elephant: An Angel Message

Our guardian angel knows us better than we know ourselves.  Sometimes we find surprising proof that we are in the right place doing the right thing at the right time. It's the simple moments of love that bring healing.

I fondly recall a time shopping at Big Lots. I'd run into the store for a particular item.  To my childish delight, a gigantic cardboard bin was smack dab in the middle of an aisle. A large box, overflowing with giant stuffed animals,  unicorns, bears -- galore, ignited my inner child.  Digging deep into the heap of posh large fuzzy animals, I found just what I needed.

A huge soft cuddly pink elephant!

 I've always loved these giant gentle creatures.  Hugging it close, I could feel my heart begin to lighten up.  It hadn't been so long ago that my 96-year-old mom had made her transition.  I was happy for her, but missed her motherly, loving touch.  How strange to find such comfort in the arms of a soft pink elephant, but my guardian angel had guided me to the perfect remedy.  A year later, the healing complete, I was prompted to pass along the elephant to another in need of a cuddly hug.

Elephants, the largest land mammals on earth, awaken a sense of awe and wonder within us.  And most of all, an elephant never forgets.  Each day is filled with loving blessings.

Love and joyful blessings,
