Earth Angel that you are
Your heart embraced the call
To share some love with all
In many ways
And what you do for one
Sets a standard for love
And Angels up above
Smile upon you

It’s HERE! The day when each and everyone of us can BE AN ANGEL!! Pretty cool huh?
Back in 1993, Jayne Howard Feldman wanted to encourage people to be NICE to each other, to suggest that we take the time do help make someone’s life a little easier. Her means to that end was to create Be An Angel Day. Thanks, in part, to the power of social media, the idea grew into a movement and it continues to move forward 23 years later.
So, what can YOU do to participate… Mow someone’s lawn, hold open a door, wash all the vehicles in the family driveway, cook more than enough dinner and take some over to the senior citizen next door and eat it with them. Listen to a conversation for no other reason than to be present. Put extra coins into parking meters. Clean your mother’s house. Take the baby for a day and give the parents a break. Walk the neighbor’s dog.
Of course the purpose of mentioning things you could do is to prime the pump of your imagination. You’ll figure this out and spread your beautiful Angel wings everywhere you are today. Oh and I suppose you have guessed by now, that being an Angel really doesn’t require a special day. What makes Be An Angel Day special, is what you DO. Simply to show the world, the Angel that you are, everyday and everyday will become Angel Day!
