Guardian Angels Are All Around Us

Every day we face a lot of dangers in the world. These dangers can be physical, mental, emotional or spiritual. Without someone looking over our shoulder, our lives would be much more difficult. Because of the guardian angels we are able to enjoy our lives that much more.
I first became aware of my guardian angel when I got very sick. The doctors were not sure whether I was going to live or die, but I always felt a presence around me that was keeping me here. The doctors could not figure out exactly what was causing my illness, but my angel was on my shoulder letting me know it would be alright. My angel was able to help me make it through the days when I was not sure what was going on.
My illness created many uncertainties, but my guardian angel was the one thing I was sure of. I knew that I was protected. That feeling of protection gave me the motivation to make my body heal itself. I did get better. It was a combination of the effort of the doctors, my own will to survive, and the guidance of my guardian angel.
Since my illness, I have been aware of someone watching over my shoulder on many occasions. I know that things will occur around me, but they can do no great harm as long as I am watched over. My belief in that power is what guides me to doing the right things. As long as I do that, I will be protected.
