Earthly Angels

The other day, as I sat in my cubicle at the day job, facing yet another report to be worked, one of the few co-workers who knows about my books popped her head around the corner.

“Have you seen it? Is it real yet?”

I had to smile. It was release week and she knew how excited I was about seeing my book on an actual shelf. We chatted for a few minutes before she disappeared back around the corner. I was left thinking about how encouraged that made me feel, and I realized, just about everywhere I go, God has put someone there to encourage me.

At the job before this, an older woman there encouraged me about balancing work and my family. We shared recipes and tips for juggling. In my family, my mom, sister, and mother-in-law have always been my champions. I have too many encouragers in the writing world to list here, but they include the Mavens and my incredible Playfriends. At my publishing house, its my editor. Whether I’m excited, sad, depressed, nervous, or giddy, always keeping the cheering section alive at home is the hubby.

I’m a very lucky woman to have so many Earthly Angels to encourage me on what has been a bumpy journey. So many women feel all alone, and I haven’t felt that way in a very long time! Gratitude just overflows when I think about it!

So today let’s celebrate those wonderful angels in our lives! Who are your angels and why?

  1. It’s always nice to think about the things I’m grateful for! My angels: My husband, my kids, my church family, my parents, my grandma, and I would say even some peeps from my writing groups. They all encourage me. They all help keep me motivated. My husband and my kids are constantly showing me grace and helping me figure out the important things in life. Thanks for reminding me how blessed I am!

  2. Brianna, I’m often the downer type who forgets about all her blessings in the face of the chaos that is my life. So this post was very much a reminder to myself to remember all the wonderful people surrounding me. 🙂

    Thank you for sharing your own angels!
