I have definitely had guardian angels looking after me in my life so far :-) But I absolutely agree with you Saphellae - they're also the people who support you in your everyday life.

I'm not sure that I've ever been aware of an angel watching over me and mine but I wouldn't doubt the fact! One of the things I've always told my children is, " I've never seen a unicorn but that does not mean they don't exist, it's just that I've never seen one." I guess it's just faith in something we can't see, touch, hold or justify. It's what makes us human.

I do believe in Guardian Angels. I have had "many times" in my life when they have been there for me.

She asked my mother to please bring me over to get my lunchbox..We went, me crying and terrified of the witch..We got to her home and she opened the door, asked us in..Her home was beautiful, clean and smelled like heaven, a candy shop..The dog came up and nudged my hand and licked me, then stood by me as she gave me my lunch box..It was heavy and when I opened it there was several types of homemade cookies and candies..She then served us lemonade and more cookies..Telling my mother that I was one of three children who never were rude or mean..That we always stayed clear of being unkind and when we came by alone, we always patted the dog and waved to her...From then on, she made it a point to watch for all of us and let anyone even yell our way and she was there shaking her finger at them, and her dog Angel too...
Guess you could say she was an angel in disguise...So was her Angel

(((CJ)) I was already teary eyed from a quote Buckytom had written now I'm full out bawling!!This was beautiful.It also makes me miss our "chats".You are and always have been a beautiful person and from one who is a true believer in angels,I whole heartedly feel you are an "earth angel" in every sense of the description.Love and energy, Vicki

Ok all this talk about angels and I have something to say.My husband Jimmy is scheduled to have that long awaited hip surgery for the torn labrum on June 3rd. He's been waiting for an OR date since December. My daughter Kiersten has been having another ugly bout with anorexia. I have been praying for my angels to keep me going to and to let me know that my son Jymm who passed in 1999 is around and is trying to comfort his sister.I asked for a sign TODAY. So here I am at DC reading through the posts and first I come to one from Buckytom and his quote is that of a song that my son Jymm used to sing and I hadn't thought of in quite awhile and then CJ shares her story of the elderly woman and her dog Angel- the name of my beloved almost 10 year old lab.This may not mean anything to anyone else and I am sure there are 100 ways to reason this away but, I know the all to well feeling I have in the solar plexis that I have been answered.Thank you Bucky, thank you CJ,thank you Jymm and thank you angels!!!Love and energy, Vicki

Nothing else to add

VickyQ: nothing more to say than what you have already said.

She's an elderly woman - very nosey. I'm quiet & keep to myself. The harassment went on every day - yelling in my windows, calling me names, making false accusations, sticking notes under my door, etc. Can't go into it all here. She moved out a few years ago, (broke the CC&R's & accrued fines she did not want to pay). Our Board had an attorney, & she had her own. The battle seemed to go on for quite some time.

She still comes into the bldg to visit her friends(?). One day I heard a pound on my front door & each of my front windows. My heart jumped. I opened the door & she stood 2 doors down cursing at me. When I went to my mailbox, & she was entering the bldg, she would plant herself behind me, or take the elevator & stand in front of my front door. Not long ago, I went to my car & saw gum or candy over the passenger side lock. I asked if there were any kids in the bldg, or if anyone had seen anything. No to both.

This is one of the major reasons I want to sell. The Board does not help, & neither do the police. BTW, I tried the kindness act w heer long aago. That didn't work either. There are just certain people that are not playing w a full deck. I wish I could find a solution, as the whole ordeal has really worn me down. Thanks for listening. Good luck w your neighbors.
would you believe, I 'happened' to watch 10 o'clock news last night. What do they have as one hot new item? rottenneighbor.com! Think I should comment?

I saw the website & heard it on the News, as well. Nah, why bring our property value down. I think you should change your outgoing message & "entertain" them.
