Paying It Forward - To Those Who Are Sick 

 

frog, a guardian angelA few months ago I was in the hospital with pancreatitis. While there, my friend, Mickey McCoy, visited me.  She had read a post that I wrote while in the hospital, "FROG, I Could Use One Right Now!"  and she brought me the cutest ceramic frog.  The card that was on the frog read:

 

I'm Angel Cheeks, your Guardian Angel,

I will be there when
nobody else is, to care,
kiss away tears and bring
smiles on rainy days.  And
always -- to be a very best
friend.  Because everybody
needs somebody ... 
That's Me!


I called Mickey to see where she had purchased the cute ceramic frog and now I will be paying it forward to those who are sick at home or in the hospital and give them their own Guardian Angel in hopes it will bring them comfort and a smile as it did me.

For those that missed it, below is the FROG story.

I was told a story about a lady in the hospital who was near death when an area Chaplain came to visit her.


This Chaplain was a very young female with long blond hair. She listened to the lady who was ill and left her a small gift for comfort.  It was a tiny ceramic frog.

The next day one of the people from the lady's church came to visit.
The lady told her friend about the beautiful young Chaplain who had come to visit her.

The friend was so impressed with the way the lady had improved and felt the need to talk to the young Chaplain.

In her search to find the young gal, she was repeatedly reassured that the chaplains are never very young and that there was never a gal that fit the description given.

Upon returning to the lady in the hospital, a visiting nurse entered the room and noticed the ceramic frog.

frogThe nurse made the comment 'I see you have a guardian angel with you.'    As she held the little frog.  We asked why she made the comment and we were informed that the frog stood for:


 
(F) Forever (R) Rely (O) On (G) God

 

F.R.O.G. what a great acronym..... don't  you agree!

Rebecca, This is a great story and I love the acronym.  Yes, I agree, it is a great one!  I do hope you  have restored well-being.  Reading this caused me to gasp as I pondered if God was answering my prayers by sending so many frogs into my garage.  I rescued four in one week.  The next one I see in my garage I will be still and listen ... trusting and believing.
