I met an angel this evening. She was breathtaking.  An angel, for me, is someone who  enters my life, who showers me in love and kindness, and reminds me of how want to see myself.  She’s someone who brings me light and good will and good fortune.

I meet them, and often, every day, I just i don’t always notice. You can tell if it’s an angel if you look into your heart and feel that twinge of joy pinch and look in their eyes and see the intensity of love deep in their eyes. You can see them, you can.

So, we met an angel today… an old old Khmer lady who kissed us on the hands and kept waving at me long after my arm or neck had the strength to stretch out that way any more.

Tell she is not gorgeous? Tell me if you’ve met angels before, even if only for a few minutes? Did you know then, or only later, that they were there to guide you to be your most beautiful light-filled self?

  1. You’re mine lovely-even though we have never met.x

    • omg you didn’t just say that? but you did. oh my god. oh. i’m bowing to you love- slowly, deeply, and silently.

  2. She looks like an angel. I can see the kindness in her eyes. And yes, she is gorgeous!

    • lacie, i know! i can see it too! i’m so glad you are too!

  3. What a beautiful story :)She truly does appear as an angel. It is an amazing feeling when you meet someone who leaves such an impact on our lives.

    • thank you linda. i feel the same way. she did leave a mark. so many many many people do. some of them, i still carry, in a very bittersweet way, in my soul….

  4. Meeting people like this makes travelling the best thing there is!

    • angela, i agree whole-heartedly. :-) happy new year.

  5. They are indeed everywhere-but sometimes they are shy. I think a smile from us helps to bring them out of their shells :)

    • Hi Larissa,
      You are so right about the smile. the power of smile is so great! we found it that even we have total language and cultural miscommunication with locals, one honest smile can break any ice between.
      Keep following us… and thanks,
      Kobi

  6. love, love, love that photo at the top. what an amazing journey – and look who you meet!! wish i’d been with you that day.

    • Hi Jessie,
      thanks you so much for writing this. I, Kobi, appreciate it a lot and I am sure you meet your angels as well along the way… :-) best of luck
      Kobi

  7. Even if angels come to earth they need to garb the flesh and bones of humans. Truly, there are countless of them around the world and I believe for them this world is revolving, though our ignorance won’t actually let us know THINGS..

    Prayers and good thoughts have great power, and your post proved that. Kudos to you!

    • hello dear Shubhajit! thank you. yes, the angels do need to wear something don’t they. :-) we are soo ignorant of what is, i totally agree with you, but slowly, at least, when we’re very quiet, we get to catch glimpses of what we don’t know. thank you for the prayers and good thoughts. we’ll take them with great love. gabi

    • yes! so glad you like it dj. and we that we can share it. gabi

  8. Yes, I can see it in her eyes. She’s got it. Nice for you and your kids.
    I have to get out and travel more. :)

    • penny dear. thank you for taking the time to leave your thoughts. i value that so much. it means the world to me to get to ‘talk’ to people about these inspirational thoughts. it keeps it so alive in my soul. she totally totally has it. i have a sneaking suspicion that people back home, my neighbors and people on the roads in israel with me, probably had it too. i just didn’t look. tell me where you are in the world and how we got lucky enough for you to find us? :-) get out love. :-)

  9. Well, you are loved by this beautiful person. There’s happiness in her eyes, we can tell. She looks wonderful and left you a strong feeling of connection. Beautiful photos and post!
