Fw: Angels Among Us?
ANGELS AMONG US?
Angels among us?
Do you think there are any?
Do you know or have known someone who you think may be one?
Perhaps it was a neighbour on the Cuckoo Estate that you knew, or a someone who was not well known but quietly went about his or her life caring for someone, always doing good, perhaps in doing so denying themselves some simple pleasures and putting the well being of others before them.
I'm not talking necessarily about Mother Theresa or other great and well known people, I think I mean wonderful and caring folk like Doctor Lasnick, their may be others who are on the verge on Sainthood, but I'm talking about the everyday, common or garden variety. Although sadly, I don't think they are too common, in fact they may be kind of rare. And I don't mean the one that may be sitting on your shoulder that we can't see.
Do you know someone who volunteers there spare time, like George Key and his wife who deliver meals on wheels. Or our Val Bailey who gives up her time to organise her Blind Bowlers' Group?
There are others, who do there bit, to keep us Cuckooites happy, myself not included, I think you know who I mean by now, and I may not have mentioned everyone by name that we know here.
There are I'm sure others, so would you like to tell their story for them, they are probably too modest to talk about themselves?
Perhaps you have a relative who looks after a brother who is severely disabled, or they work in hospital or they are veterinarians who volunteer a local animal shelter.
Maybe you know someone who prefers to stay private and avoid the limelight, but busily goes about their dutiful task, possibly unnoticed.
Or maybe you have a son or daughter in the armed forces who are serving their country in some awful war zone?
We may all have different views on what an "Angel" is.
Maybe we can't see their wings, maybe in your opinion, it's someone who you will see or hear at the Cuckooite reunion?
I'm not one, and I'm not sure if you are, although I think we all may all have the potential to be one at times, but we often shy away, saying we are too busy, or offering ourselves some other lame excuse.
Some people truly believe they exist, do you?
Perhaps someone really close to you is one?
If you know someone who you think deserves a mention, a child, an adult, or someone from your past that you once knew, whoever it may be we would love to hear about them.
Why not tell us about them?
And thank them and give them a pat on the back for all that they do,
right here, right now on this site.
