{ANGELS We Know By Name}

We all do know one or more ANGELS By Name... A LOVED ONE that has taken up residence in heaven and is no longer walking with us on earth. But those are the ANGELS that are still walking on our side; ANGELS We Know By Name.
Just like dear friend +Celia M. High Heeled Life wrote about a special Angel:  Tribute to an Angel in her post before...
Guess all of us have one or more special ANGELS that we know by name!
In my case it is my sister Mariet, the one that was still born on January 11, the year before I got born. Her life on earth did not even start, only in the womb she lived for 9 months.
Such a tragedy for my Parents, especially Mom for loosing her baby after all the pain and labor.
They took it away from her, without letting her cuddle it and all baby clothes were hidden.
Such was the advice at that time.
It makes me cringe when I think about it even now!
But the next baby that came into their lives was me and I got my older sister's name Mariet.
In honor of {My Angel Sister & Mariette's Back to Basics Explained}I have added 'te' to my name as to try and live life for her as well.

My sweet ANGEL sister Mariet for sure is walking alongside and who knows when one of us will join her on the other side...?
Like ABBA sang: I Have A Dream, (click for video and the lyrics follow under post) I believe in Angels and so do I, our home is full of beautiful hand carved wooden angels from Italy as you can find from the links below. They always have been part of my life!

I Have A Dream
I have a dream, a song to sing
To help me cope with anything
If you see the wonder of a fairy tale
You can take the future even if you fail
I believe in angels
Something good in everything I see
I believe in angels
When I know the time is right for me
I'll cross the stream - I have a dream

I have a dream, a fantasy
To help me through reality
And my destination makes it worth the while
Pushing through the darkness still another mile
I believe in angels
Something good in everything I see
I believe in angels
When I know the time is right for me
I'll cross the stream - I have a dream
I'll cross the stream - I have a dream

I have a dream, a song to sing
To help me cope with anything
If you see the wonder of a fairy tale
You can take the future even if you fail
I believe in angels
Something good in everything I see
I believe in angels
When I know the time is right for me
I'll cross the stream - I have a dream
I'll cross the stream - I have a dream

  3. Dearest Mariette;
    I remember very well about your sister and how your name came from. Yes, and she must be with you as an angel protecting you. Until I have met you as a friend, I hadn't thought about angels much. To tell the truth, my mother lost one baby and she my be with me too. My mother haven't talked about her much as it must be a hard experience for her as well like your mother had.

    Sending you lots of Love and Hugs from Japan to my dear friend in America, xoxo Miyako*

    2. Dearest Miyako,
      You see, another similar story that you share with us here... Especially in the Japanese culture, emotions were not often shown or shared. And certainly your Angel sister and others are with you! Like Celia, I do believe that your Angel sister is mighty proud of you!
      Hugs,

  4. Dearest Mariette; beautifully tribute to your darling sister ... I know she has been with you each and everyday gently guiding you along your journey of life. Thank you for mentioning my post on Angel P - she was both an Angel here on earth as she is now that she calls heaven home. Sending you hugs from Canada and wishing you a beautiful Saturday. Hugs and Blessings, C. (HHL)

      Thank you for your kind and encouraging words! It is a very reassuring way of knowing that we are never alone on our earthly journey. We can so often sense it and there are no other explanations for it. You are quite welcome and it was a pleasure for mentioning Angel P; you earned it.
      We will celebrate in a special way on Saturday!
      Hugs and love to you dear friend.

      Yes, like believing in Angels, there are certain songs that make such an impact on our souls that they are forever etched in there. 'I will follow him!' is certainly one of them and you too came to understand and FEEL it literally. I bet, you WILL sing that to him and many times.

  8. Liebe Mariette,

    auch ich hätte eine jüngere Schwester. Sie ist vor der Geburt gestorben. Ihr Name Nicole. Nun ist meine Mutter bei ihr, sie ist letztes Jahr mitte Dezember gestorben.

    Engel sind immer um uns. Mit dem Herzen können wir sie wahrnehmen. ♥

    Alles Gute.

  12. Wat een tragedie voor je ouders een voldragen kind te verliezen. In die tijd moest je het maar zo gauw mogelijk vergeten was de gedachte. Een grote vergissing inderdaad, maar ja mensen wisten toen niet beter, die inzichten kwamen later pas.

      Inderdaad een tragedie voor mijn ouders. Inzichten veranderen over tijd maar als het jezelf treft op zo'n manier dan valt er niet veel meer aan te doen. Het verwerken zónder enig afscheid lijkt me bijna onmogelijk.

  13. Dearest Mariette,
    This is such a sad yet heartwarming story you are sharing with us... Sad because your sister never got the chance to live on this Earth (and what a tragedy it must have been for your Mom), yet heartwarming because you are carrying her name and living for her too... And I am sure she smiles from up there, and she loves you very much. And she is walking by your side each day.

    I do believe in angels, my sweet Mariette! I have to share a story with you... Yesterday I had to run an errand which I wasn't particularly happy of... When I got to that place, I felt I had to retire and gather some positive energy... and I just walked a few meters on, and I turned into a small street (the place where I had to go is on a big corso with lots of traffic and cars). I didn't really know why I turned into that small street and I had never been there before. As soon as I turned into that street I saw a church. I read the name in bold letters, and it said "Sanctis Angelus Custodius" (Saint Guardian Angel in Latin). I looked up and smiled. Then I turned my eyes, and I saw that right opposite there was a small, charming café. The name? "Angelo Custode". Need I say that I went to that place I had dreaded to go with a smile, AND singing THIS song???? Needless to say, as soon as I was finished with my errand, I went back to that little café and I had a coffee there. I told the lady there that it was such a sweet place, and she smiled and told me that she loves angels. How endearing!

    Have a lovely weekend, my friend! Big hugs!

      There are so many instances where we almost got nudged by an invisible hand to take a certain turn or to go somewhere without any reason. There are many stories I could tell you and both of us believe very strongly that we are guided by our Guardian Angel(s)!
      Thanks for sharing your special story and for your heart warming words about my Angel sister.

  15. Sweet friend, I could really feel your love and pain for your dear angel sister, my mom lost two babies a girl she named Belinda and a boy she named Victor, they would have been younger then myself and big bro Vincent..
    We would have been four altogether, my dear mommy always wanted a big family, I and my bro vinny had four in honor of the two my mommy lost, I have two boys and two girls just like my mommy would have had, my big bro has three boys and a girl, so my mom has plenty of grand babies to spoil and love.
    I love that angel you have,it's divine :-)

    What a sweet and moving tribute to your angel sister. I believe in angels too, I believe they are among us taking care of us all the time. I also have an angel brother named David, my mother and my father too are my angels. I have them in my heart and they are watching over me always. As I'm sure your angel sister watches over you too.

  25. Dearest Mariette, I do remember how you received your name and it is so sweet. My only sibling, Betty Jean, was three years older than I when she crossed over. She was almost six at the time. I can't imagine the pain and heartache my Mom and Dad must have gone through. My sister had a heart condition that would be repaired today through day surgery. When my Mom passed, I found among her things, my sister's last robe and slippers. She had kept them for 45 years.
    Now the three of them rejoice with our Lord but I also know they walk with me.
    Thanks for this thought provoking and touching post.

      Thank you for sharing your sister Betty Jean with us and indeed what a pain and heartache this must have been for your Parents and even you remember it as a three year old. Your sister's last robe and slippers were something so dear to your Mom for holding on to... Quite emotional for finding out after all those years. But in our memory they live on and for sure, they are with us all the way until we meet again.

  26. Those are magnificent blossoms, Mariette. My favorite camellia is the Pink Perfection. I don't currently have one, but I've been poking around the nurseries to find one. Of the one I have now, their blossoms died with the latest frost, but new buds have already appeared and I can't wait to see them! <3
