Wednesday, Gramma’s quilt and angels…

Day 6–About Me


When I was a little girl I stayed with my Gramma  quite often.
She made the most beautiful quilts that were warm and cozy on cold winter nights.
One night when she was tucking me in I told her the quilt was awfully heavy.
She said the quilt seemed heavy because my Guardian Angel was on the bed with me.
Of course, I believed her, Gramma would  never lie.

I am a long way from childhood but I still believe in Guardian Angels.
I know without a doubt they exist.
I have never seen one but I have felt their presence more than once.
And I know that without my Guardian Angel watching over me
life would be really frightening.

I have no idea what an angel looks like.
I don’t think they look like the pictures in books.
I know they are different from people and don’t have bodies like people
because they are heavenly creatures.
I know they are neither male nor female they are just angels.
I know they can travel faster than my imagination.
They are always where they need to be at the right time,
never early never late.

I know I have a Guardian Angel.
What I don’t know is if there is one assigned to me or more than one.
I sometimes wonder if there is day and night shifts for angels,
or week-end and holiday shifts.
Or maybe there are specialist angels;
one that stays home and one that goes to work with me,
one assigned to travel and another when I am sick, etc.

I guess it doesn’t matter what I know or don’t know except
that I do believe  there are angels.


I am very thankful that angels are real
and that my Guardian Angel is always with me.


Today, I think there have been times that I have given my Guardian Angel fits.
But I know an angel never gets tired or gives up on the one they are watching over.
So, no matter what I am covered just like with Gramma’s quilt.

  1. Oh Patricia, what a beautiful post! My Grandmother also made wonderful quilts, and to this day I sleep under quilts, much preferring them to fancy comforters. I love the story about your angel weighing down the quilt, and I will think of it again as the nights get colder and I pile on another quilt! I agree with all you’ve said about angels, I know they are ever present in our lives, most certainly they’ve saved mine a time or two, and there was one time I’m quite certain that two appeared to me in human form to help me when I needed help. It’s it nice to know that God loves us this much?! Thank you for a heart-warming addition to this week’s Two Shoes Tuesday!

  2. I’ve actually seen angels Patricia (while wide awake). Love your Grandma story. You were blessed. 🙂

  3. Aww that kitty angel is cute!
    Loved the story you shared about your Gamma 🙂
    I believe in angels too…sometimes I fight with them, but always I’m thankful for them
