my iron garden angel
I thought that since this is the week of Valentines,
that I would share a few of the angels and cherubs
around my home.

When Landon was diagnosed with Angelman
syndrome I looked at angels in a totally
different light than I had ever done before.
I knew that I would need the help of angels to raise
this sweet little one that had been sent to me
to care for.
Whenever I saw an angel, I always felt the need
to bring it home to live with me. Soon I was overwhelmed
with them and over the years have been
able to curb that habit a little. Sometimes however,
I see one that I cannot resist. These are just a
few of them that reside here in this house.
I love this one I found just recently
I am a big believer in the ministering of angels to those
of us who live on the Earth. I know in my life I have felt their
presence keenly at times.
I have had their protection and comfort come to
me and have known that they are never far
away when needed.

And I have needed them a lot!

I know Landon has a whole host of angels that
watch over him. When he was a baby, even before
we had his diagnosis of Angelman, he would sit in
his bed at night and laugh and laugh (part of the syndrome
that we were yet to learn about is the presence of
excessive laughter) and Dale
would say,"I do believe that angels must
come to that boy at night and play with him."

I do believe his daddy was right!
I think he must have laughed himself out
