 I will admit that I am not a religious person, hell I'm not even a positive person who even sometimes doesn't think highly of most people.  I'm the type of person who thinks every silver lining has dark thunder cloud.  Today, though I had something happen to me where I believe there is someone/something up there who sends Angels to Earth disguised a people.

Lately I have been having a very hard time with a lot of personal issues, one of which being my weight and having it creeping up, hence me buying a pair of 142.00 jeans and almost having my credit card chopped up by my husband.  It has been feeling like No matter how hard I try, that its for nothing I am destined to fail.

Anyways, I went to the mall today to meet up with some of my mommy friends for a mall walk since our stroller walk was cancelled and after we got together I had to run to the jewelry store to get my wedding and engagement rings inspected and cleaned so that the warranty would still be good.  While I was there I was asking about these clocks that were on the wall because there was one that Chad and I really liked and we were told that they had stopped making it.  While the lady who worked there was trying to find out if that was true, there was a girl who was painting the display windows who I had never seen before in my entire life.  She looks at me and said "Wow you look amazing, you have lost a ton of weight, have you been walking?" I kind of looked at her like I was a deer caught in the headlights and said "Who? Me?" and she said "Yeah" and I said "Yeah, thanks".

I was totally taken aback because here's this stranger telling me that I look awesome and that I look like I have lost a ton of weight and that I'm doing a great job.  Yeah, maybe she thought that I was someone else, but I really want to believe that she is one of these Angels that I was talking about.  Just sent to earth as a person to make things pleasant.  Now I was want to work twice as hard at what I have been doing, not just for the jeans, and not just for the praise of a stranger, but because I'm NOT a failure like I thought I was.  SOMEONE thinks That I am doing well and sometimes that's all you need to be inspired.  Regardless of what happened today, I'm walking a little taller with a little more faith in humanity. . .for once in my life.
