An Angel Came

This is a very interesting memory because this happened in the month of November 2016. Latvians also celebrate Name’s Days that is the date in the Latvian calendar that includes your name. Martin’s was on November 10 and it was also a sort of traditional Latvian holiday Martin Day. At that time as we sat in the kitchen and had some drinks, I thought the angel was bringing glad tidings, Actually, it was a warning of bad tidings because Martin died on August 17, 2017. It was interesting to find this piece I wrote and to think that sometimes we can be so wrong about certain symbols.

On Martin Day it was quite cold and a bit more snow fell. My hubby and I were sitting at the kitchen table when I looked out at the greenhouse. There clearly I could see an angel of snow standing against the greenhouse. As you can see in the photo the angel has a halo and it can be identified by the wing. Today it was warmer and the snow has begun to melt but the angel is still prominently in place. I believe the angel is a very good symbol of good things for us and also of greetings from above since on November 15 is the anniversary of my dad’s death in 1967. I am interested to see how long it will keep standing in its place.

  1. It’s just the way our loved ones re-affirm their presence. A lady whose husband died a year ago from cancer was finding it hard to cope without him after 60 years together. Then one afternoon her daughter and granddaughter gave her a surprise visit. Her granddaughter 6 years old, was carrying a huge gift-wrapped parcel. “Grammy” she said, excitedly, “Pappi told me to make this gift for you, so, it’s from both of us. Everyone called her husband Pappi. When she opened it, she was completely blown away! It was a pillow with a large photograph of her Pappi, printed on it and a very specific message below, the image, with these words, “I miss you too, my angel, all of the time. My love, hug this because I can’t”. In the dream, his granddaughter had, he was very specific about what he wanted the message to say.
