Angels on Your Shoulder

IMG_0704 This is week two with the baby chicks. They already have little miniature wing feathers and cute little tails. I just had to share another picture of these little angels in chicken bodies.
Lately I have been very moved by nature and life’s magic. I just replanted the garden I had built for my dad and love watching the seeds sprout. Mahealani, my good friend and Hawaiian kumu (teacher) told me a long time ago that angels often do for us what we can’t do for ourselves. I really got to see that in action this week.
My father has Alzheimer’s and is fiercely independent. He needs to be looked after but he likes living alone. After his wife died I tried having him live with me here in Hawaii but he hated not being in total control. When I wouldn’t let him drive he left, telling everyone I had kept him prisoner and stolen all his money.
The other day he had another car accident. I scrambled to find an assisted living place and wasn’t looking forward to being the bad guy once again. Much to my surprise his step daughters had stepped in and were moving him to Vermont. After some initial upset, since they don’t talk to me, I was incredibly relieved. Hopefully, he will be well cared for and I won’t have to travel 6000 miles to set up his care. Since it is his choice to move back to Vermont I am off the hook so to speak. It really feels like the angels did for me what I couldn’t do for myself!
I could look at the whole thing from the perspective of being cut out of my dad’s life or from the expansive perspective of my spirit. How I feel is not dependent on what he or his step daughters do or don’t do, it is dependent on how I choose to see what is. When he had the accident and I wasn’t sure what to do I asked for help and opened a copy of my angel book. The book opened to the entry on Solomon.
Solomon will help you:
Connect with your divine wisdom
Balance all areas of your world
Invite success and abundance into your life
Heal your emotional body
Release the past
How appropriate!
So in my heart of hearts I wish my dad and his step daughters well. I will write to him often and call him if I can. What a gift for the both of us. He has a place to live and I don’t have to be the mean child that took away his drivers licence.
With love and aloha,
Susan
