Love Is The Greatest Thing

‘Go to the park,’ said my wife, ‘someone’s leaving Christmas angels on the benches for people to find!’ So down I went and sure enough I saw one and took a photo.IMG_2643.jpg I walked about looking for more but they’d all been taken. Then I saw someone coming my way with a couple of large bags.IMG_2645 2.jpg‘Are you the angel lady?’ She laughed and said ‘Yes, would you like one?’ So I took an angel home. IMG_2728.JPGAngel means messenger and the message is on the label.

The perceptive song was written by Ray Noble in 1932, and after finding the angel with the message I thought of it in a quite different light.


If you go to you’ll find, among other information, how to knit an angel. Perhaps even be one.

      She thought it was charming to be called an angel lady; it made her laugh. I don’t know what I would have said if she hadn’t been the lady with the angels! Thank you for your note! K xx
