“They wear so many faces, show up in the strangest places.
To grace us with their mercy, in our time of need.
I believe there are angels among us.
Sent down to us from somewhere up above.
They come to you and me in our darkest hours.
To show us how to live, to teach us how to give.
To guide us with a light of love.”
It’s hard to believe that it’s been four months since 160+ women gathered in my gardens for the fourth annual “Soles of Love in the Garden” charity event.
It had been a tough week for my family leading up to the event but when the evening finally arrived, there was magic in the garden.
Old friends. New friends. Acquaintances who quickly became friends.
Candlelight. Twinkling lights. Smiles. Hugs. Laughter. Warmth.
And shoes. 583 pairs to be exact!
Hand delivered by angels.
This week, the second phase of that effort became a reality.
With the proceeds from the donations, I was able to purchase 71 pairs of winter boots for our local children! And donate $300 from the proceeds of our beautiful chair created by my friend Jenni Hatcher.
There were angels among us that magical night!
Today I finished my porch holiday decorations. Every year I select a theme (because I’m weird like that!)
Because if this year has taught me anything, it’s that they are always among us!
May this holiday season find you filled with love.
Fueled by grace.
And blessed by angels.
