Just A Few Seconds Away

She lives alone.

But not really.

In her state of dementia she believes an angel lives with her.

The angel naps on her bed.  The angel talks to her and tells her things she believes are worth knowing.

My friend went to visit her.  And she told my friend if she wakes up and the angel is gone, she calls for the angel.

And the angel calls back from where she is-

“Don’t worry, I’m just a few seconds away from where you are.”

 I believe.

They are never far from us.

    Angels are among us, maybe on the sidewalk beside us. I believe, Colleen. ❤ This is comforting for her to know.


  7. Thank you. It’s a comforting thing for her and us. Guardian angels are soaring with the Pelicans here. They flash brilliant white when the sun catches them.


  8. Whatever comfort a body needs and can be had is a bonus. Angels are the best comfort.
    Love this story, Colleen. ❤ ❤ ❤


  9. When my mother had final stages Alzheimer’s she sat in her wheel chair smiling away like she was on a pleasure cruise. Perhaps she was seeing angels as well. This of yours made me smile. And feel good. ❤
