Ahem Ahem; Try humming “I have a dream” while reading this one 🙂
People who know me would know that I had a double fall on Saturday. As in, I fell twice on the same day. I was hurt. Less physically and more mentally. It was a weird feeling. I felt lost, scared, lonely, etc etc. I woke up on Sunday with a feeling of absolute despondency. I switched off my phone, shut my laptop and remained oblivious to the world. I am not sure why I did that but…I did it.
S and M with Lil drove down 50 km just to check on me. I wasn’t replying to their messages and they weren’t sure how I was so they actually drove down without giving it a second thought(Oh well, they may have thought but does that really matter?! They came!!). Now that did bring about a strange sort of satisfaction, the kind you experience when someone thinks of u as an important part of their life. Even weirder was the fact that I had never done anything for them that would’ve made them reciprocate this way!!
And then yesterday, I met Joey who was ranting about me to her husband. I never thought she’d rememebr so much about our past. She kept telling him about what we used to do when we were kids and how I had helped her and how close we used to be and how much fun we used to have. We spoke about old times and only then i realised how a small thing said can make such a significance in a persons life. She told me that the way she looked at it, I was her angel. More than she being happy, i was happy, happy that atleast i’d been of help to someone , someone who valued the little assurance i’d given in such a a big way.
I have begun to believe that in life, we all have such “angels” in the form of friends, who keep helping us spread our wings , helping us learn to fly n helping us to be angels for someone else. It may not be a single person all through your life but at every struggle n every obstacle there will be an angel that is a god sent. A friend that will help you get through it all.
As I walked back home last night, I realised that sometimes we become angels n we don’t even know it!
