I believe in angels, but am not really sold on the notion that we all have Guardian Angels. If we do, then mine must be on permanent vacation. Something happened to me about 4 1/2 years ago. I was at a job that I absolutely loved, and met someone that I fell madly in love with. I did the job extremely well and everyone wanted me to stay on permanently (I was on contract). But because there was a union, and because my boss was spineless and wouldn't take a stand for me, he ended up hiring the only "internal" person that applied, even though she had no qualifications, was miserable and couldn't perform event he simplest of tasks. I had to say good-bye to the guy I had fallen in love with too, as he was in the dept. that I worked in. Over the course of a year I attempted to get a permanent position at this company and there was always "something" totally unusual that always prevented me from getting any position there (this has never happened to me at any other job I've gotten). To make a long story short, I came very close to having a nervous breakdown and even considered suicide. There are no words to describe the pain I went through. It may sound strange that a job would mean that much to anyone, but it was the combination of the job and the guy I fell for. I know if I could have continued working there, I could have ended up with him, but without that daily contact, it all fell apart. This was the first time since I was 17 years old where I knew how it felt to be "happy" and it was horrific to have to go back to my usual semi-depressed state that I normally lived in. The guy I fell for ended up with someone else.
If I had a Guardian Angel, then where were they during my darkest hour? Why was I allowed to find happiness for such a brief moment and then have it snatched away? And where was the guardian angel for Samantha Runion or Jon Bennet Ramsey? Where was Laci Peterson's Guardian Angel?
Sorry if I sound depressing, but I don't understand how and why such bad things happen to people if we all have Guardian Angels.
