Update 4th August

May you always have an angel by your side.
Watching out for you in all the things you do.
Reminding you to keep believing in brighter days. Finding ways for your wishes and dreams to take you to beautiful places.
Giving you hope that is certain as the sun. Giving you strength of serenity as your guide. May you always love and comfort and courage.
And may you always have an angel by your side
