We awoke in Prince George, BC to over 3” of snow on the car, with the news on the radio offering the expectation of 2-4 more inches. Not the greatest outlook, when today was the only day for us to travel to Fort St John. The skies looked unforgiving, after all I reminded myself, this was still winter, a time of heavy snowfall, and slick roads.
It wasn’t about choice, there was no alternative, and the longer we waited the worse it would get. Visibility was poor so we proceeded with caution. Even with winter tires on our trusty steed, I put up a prayer to our angels and protectors. After all, we were on this road, literally, because of divine intervention. 500 km of driving ahead of us in these conditions could do with a little expert help and guidance from above.
Moments later the song "Calling All Angels" by Jane Siberry from the hit movie, “Pay it Forward” came on the radio. A sign? Yes, an acknowledgement they were with us – as always.
As I listened to the words tears filled my eyes as I realized that my life has always been so blessed- even when I couldn’t really appreciate it.
I hope you can call on your angels whenever you need them. Always remember, however heavy your steps feel as you walk forward on your journey, it is NEVER too late, and you are NEVER alone.
None of us have yet fully cracked the code to life, but if we try each day to lean into the vibration of trust with unconditional love, it gets easier. As the song says:
But if you could...do you think you would, trade it all, all the pain and suffering?
But then you'd miss....The beauty of the light upon this earth, and the sweetness of the leaving....
For us, thankfully the harshness of the blizzard dissipated about an hour into the journey. From there on in it was clear roads and sunshine all the way. Our thanks vibrated out from within us into the cosmos.
Remember, it is always the darkest before the dawn.
