Before blessing you with the glorious images

Read the message couple with the images by Deriq….
“A few lucky ones of us have that one person who never lets them down. Who always comes through for them when they are down.No questions asked or judgments thrown around. They are like our guardian angels here on Earth and we understandably often think of them as “bulletproof”.

We forget they are just as human and probably going through their own issues and fighting their own battles while handling ours at the same time. I think it’s only fair that we grow to be the ones doing the saving sometimes.

You can simply give your guardian angel a call once in a while to just find out how they are really doing or how you can be of help. Not because you are in trouble and you need saving.”
