                                                on my way home
                                                from an early morning
                                                run to the grocery store
                                                I think about the receipt


                                                a few minutes later

                                                I pull into the driveway
                                                and step out of the car

                                                above me

                                                seven trumpeter swans
                                                headed toward the river

                                                we live 
in the company of angels

    1. Thank you, Rita. It was a memorable experience. Hope all is well with you and yours. :)

  2. Dear Teresa, I have recognized the presence of angels for many years --ethereal, but more often not. When I gardened public places, my closing assignment lasted 26 years. When one of my younger children visited the campus, he heard deep musical laughter --a sound familiar and beloved. He asked, "who is that big lady?" I answered,"She is a campus security monitor. She helps keep Daddy safe at work." He asked,"How?"
    I simplified my reply down to the truth: "Because she is an angel." Then we all hugged.

    1. Thank you so much for this beautiful comment and affirmation.
