Ajoleblon...A Cajun Tale

This journal is a bunch of rants about nothing. Mostly lighthearted happenings in the life of a woman who is very simple and who wants for nothing but greatly appreciates whatever is given. You will find nothing profound here but hopefully something that will make you laugh and that's what I enjoy doing most. Being humorous. Fight all error, but do it with good humor, patience, kindness, and love. Harshness will damage your own soul and spoil the best cause.

I have a  Guardian Angel that I talk with. I think the other day he got tired of me calling him "Hey you" and nudged me into giving him a name. I had been meaning to name him, but I could never come up with the right name. So I told him that when I did I would surely let him know what it was. I was driving to work the other morning when obviously he nudged me harder than normal, because all of a sudden, out of no where I said "Okay Joey! Enough!" It’s truly remarkable because he became Joey at that moment and no longer a nameless angel. Joey has for a while been turning red lights green for me and finding me parking spaces closer to my destination. This morning he failed to turn the red light green for me. I hate this certain intersection where I have to merge into traffic and hurry into the left lane. If the light is green I can just go, but if it is red I have to stay in the right lane and merge into traffic and battle to get into the left lane before my turn, which is ½ mile down the road. As I said, this morning, he failed me, so I thought, BUT here is the rest of the story:

We have finally hired a new lady for the accounting department. She is in the office with me and we get along fabulously! She is a joy to work with and we have so much in common that I felt rather comfortable telling her about Joey even though she just started working with me yesterday. She clowned me about him and it was rather amusing when I was telling her about him failing me this morning and not turning my light green. "Martha" looked at me and she said; " he may not have turned the light green but I was there in the left lane to let you flow into traffic." And indeed she was and I had completely forgotten that. So he accomplished his mission in a totally different way than I expected. When Martha left this afternoon she told me to tell "Joey" to let her know when to leave her house in the mornings so she could be exactly where I needed her to be in the traffic flow.

As I was showering tonight, I realized what a joy, Joey has been for me these past few days and I regretted not naming him Joy, but then I realized if you remove the "e" he becomes joy...sometimes he’s a regular joe and sometimes he’s joy to me.

I also read today thatyou should speak out loud to your angel because they are not like God. They cannot read your thoughts, so if your angel isn’t responding to your calls, it’s possible he can’t hear you.

I have Joey on a mission right now.

No, I have not fallen off the deep end. I happen to truly believe in angels.

I do also; one time I had a registered Jersey heifer in a ditch and said, "God, if only you would send an angel to help me with this calf."

And He did.  I know, it sounds silly; it was only a cow.  But it was real.

I believe in Angels too, and I have also heard that you should give your angel a name, and talk to them, because they can't hear.  I need to do that.  I forgot and expected mine to read my mind.  Now I know why it has appeared that he's not around!  I need to name him, and talk to him.  Not hard for me to do.  I just hope he doesn't get confused, as I talk to myself an awful lot and he may leave out of pure confusion! lol

Oh there is no doubt in my mind that there are Guardian Angels, and mine is Nicole. She has watched over me since the day she became an Angel on September 11th, 2001. She never leaves me, never fails me. And I love her with all my heart.

Funny how things happen sometimes. And imagine how hard she works guarding ME!

So if you have a Guardian Angel that watches over you, what exactly is he doing whilst you are taking a shower? Is he watching or is he off being angelic somewhere else?

Whoa! This post really got to me because I've been thinking about my guardian angel a lot lately. Never thought of naming him/her. Sounds like a good idea.
