Angels don't always have wings.

The last few years have been challenging to say the least. We have endured the deaths of several family members, some we were prepared for and some that caught us by complete surprise. We lost all 3 of our beloved dogs during this time. We lost jobs and the significant portion of our income. We dealt with medical issues, depression and recovery. At times it was almost too much and we struggled with the desire to just give up.

But, even though times were tough we managed to survive.

A big part of that survival was because of the "angels" we had backing us up. While I do believe we had angels watching over us from on high... I also know that many of our angels didn't sport wings. Most of our angels came in the disguise of regular people. Our family and our friends.

Each and every angel brought something special into our lives. They offered support when we needed it. That support came in many forms and every single form was important. Every little bit kept us going and raised our spirits.

And so we made it through. And I want to be sure and thank everyone of our "Angels". Thank you for listening to us when we needed it. Thank you for keeping us in your prayers. Thank you for never giving up and encouraging us. Thank you for giving what and when you could in order to ease our burdens. We LOVE and APPRECIATE you all!!
