It Started With a Hello…personal

Angels walk in our midst each day as strangers and this past week has been one of my best so far health wise due to a brief encounter and discussion with a total stranger.Image result for thank you image angels

My fibromyalgia has given me a lot of pains these past few months and just last week Wednesday, I had an encounter with a lady on a staircase where I was holding onto the railings and trundling down gingerly and by just saying hello to her as she walked past me in her ripped jeans and paint-splattered T-shirt we got into a brief conversation.

She recommended that I should try some Magnesium tablets that she believes would help. I was skeptical because I have a cupboard filled with x,y and z vitamins all promising what they don’t fulfill. I had done a full bloodwork recently and the doctor gave me another shovel of vitamins, so you can see why I was skeptical.

However, a little voice reminded two days later when I had a poor night due to pains to just try what the lady had told me. To cut a long story short, it works! I found it and right from the next day, I felt a lot better. For four straight nights in a row, I have slept soundly without waking to stretch or massage my aching body, so you can understand my pleasure.

To this stranger that I may never meet again, thank you with all my heart. I am grateful.

It all started with a hello. I always say that all good things around us are sent from Heaven above and I thank the Lord for the beautiful stranger who is an Angel sent to me on that staircase.

I am learning never to take anyone for granted because I never know when I might have a divine encounter because life has shown me that the angels who walk amongst us are just like you and me.

  1. There are no accidental encounters, J. I am convinced of this. I have taken advice/council from near-strangers over the years, all to my benefit. Good on you for keeping an open mind. You never know which voice will matter. ☺

  2. Thanks for sharing that Jacqueline. I was tested for fibromyalgia years back, but wasn’t diagnosed with it, but I can certainly understand the pain, I have had my share of it with sciatic issues, back, & hip. You seem like such a positive person, good for you! I need to use some of that positivity right now. I got a call to come back in for another mammogram (just had one yesterday), which is always a phone call you pray not to get.

  3. My, I didn’t know you were suffering from fibromyalgia…I’ve obviously missed that post. I’m saddened that you’ve been enduring such pain, Jackie, as well as relieved that you’ve found something that actually helps. Many blessings to that lady for sharing her remedy and to you Jackie for being as strong as you are.
