Helping Hands Feel So Good

There are times in life that you never know what to expect. Today I had a day that turned out so much better than I could have ever expected.  To be around people who genuinely care about others and the level of that was truly amazing. It’s been a long time since I have experienced such a feeling.  It was refreshing on so many levels. These people were so positive and it was the kind of positive that you can’t fake. It’s been a long day but as I sit here I can’t help but think my heart touched in ways I never expected and for me that is somewhat scary.

Angels Touching Our Lives

When we often think of angels we imagine some heavenly spirit. The thing is that there are angels here on earth that touch our lives and we never realize or understand when it happens. The thing is it can happen in your daily life in situations that you would never think it would.  It is only upon reflection that you can understand that an angel entered your life. So what do these angels look like? They come in all shapes and colors.  You see the angels pictured in many bibles would be looked at weirdly if they went flying down the street. No these angels are very often people you meet in your normal routine. The thing is that in many situations they are being an angel and don’t realize it. Have you ever been in a situation that all of a sudden you hear something inside of you say “it’s ok to open up to a total stranger”?  I know I have.  Also it’s also important to understand that you have no idea what is going on in  their lives.  Them being an angel for you very well could be something they don’t understand either.

Healing Starts With an Open Mind

A few years ago after my second shoulder surgery ( and they don’t know what is causing the pain) I asked my doctor what he thought about alternative medical methods. He said the Chinese have been practicing different methods for over 4000 years so they must be doing something right. That mindset is becoming more and more prevalent in today’s western medical mindset. That is a good and necessary thing to be happening. Modern western medicine has the mindset of fixing people after they get  sick instead of trying to keep people from getting sick in the first place. There are so many theories as to how to control medical cost. Wouldn’t it make sense to keep people from getting sick in the first place?  Yet many Americans don’t want to change the way they live but prefer to run to the nearest ER at the first sign of illness. Of course the ER is the most expensive part of most hospitals.  So why not at least explore other forms of treatment? What do you have to lose?
