My Guardian Angel
When Woman’s World reader Anita Kinsler, of Sneedville, Tennessee, asked the angels to help find her missing earring, they didn’t let her down. She writes:
When my mother passed away, I was devastated. And as Christmas approached, my sadness deepened. Every year since I was a little girl, my mother and I played a selection of duets together at Christmas Eve services. I played the piano, and Mom accompanied me on guitar. It was the highlight of our year.
This year when asked, I agreed to participate as a soloist. But as the concert neared, I became anxious. How can I do this without my mother? I wondered.
I tried my best to get into the festive mood. I even bought a new pair of earrings to match my dress. But as I was putting them on, I dropped one.
As I crawled around on my hands and knees looking for the missing earring, I thought about my mom and remembered how good she was at finding things.
Finally, not wanting to be late to church, I gave up and switched to another pair, quickly adding a Christmas tree brooch that had belonged to Mom.
The concert was a success. Somehow, as I played, my nerves calmed. I felt Mom and the angels at my side the whole time.
When I returned home, my thoughts returned to the missing earring, so I hurried upstairs to do another search. Placing Mom’s Christmas tree brooch on the vanity, I spotted the trash basket beside the dresser and thought maybe the earring was in there. But it wasn’t.
“Oh, angels, please help me find that earring,” I whispered.
Just then, I glanced back at the vanity, and there was the earring, sitting beside the brooch that I’d just removed! How could this be possible? I wondered. But I already knew. I’d asked for the angels’ help and they didn’t let me down.
I’ve always believed that angels help us if we ask, and this was a confirmation of my belief. I know without a doubt that my mom and the angels not only helped me get through the concert but that they also found the missing earring.
I sat on my bed with tears streaming from my eyes. I must have cried for at least 20 minutes, not so much because I’d found my lost earring, but because of the overwhelming love that I felt from Heaven above.
“What a beautiful Christmas gift for Anita to receive, this Heavenly sign of love!” says Doreen Virtue, PH.D. “This experience has the angels written all over it!
“The angels helped me get through the concert and even find my missing earring!” marvels Anita
“I love it when the angels return a lost heirloom to an ‘ illogical’ location. This shows they can see the location of everything from their Heavenly vantage point.
“I’m so happy that Anita went through with her Christmas concert, despite the grief she must have felt without her mother accompanying her. And the reward she received was confirmation of the love that Heaven offers to her . . . and to all of us!”
