Don’t you just love it when you really, really, need some help and a friend just comes in from nowhere and bails you out? No? Awww… everyone should have that experience once. Of course it’s not all fun. Actually, It has to start off quite badly for you. You need to be in a real jam of sorts. You know, the kind of jam that makes you sweat and wonder if you are going to lose something real big. Like you job. Your pride. Your reputation.

And then it happens. Someone, somewhere – a friend sent from heaven – comes in and cleans up for you. He/ She does it so effortlessly that you don’t even realize what has happened. Till of course, you go “whew. Saved” and feel an outpouring of love and gratitude… till the next time!

You know, kind of makes me wonder. Especially when we get help from friends whom we may cherish but don’t really expect to have helped us. And the really strange part is- you almost never get the kind of help you want from people who you expect help from. Why does this happen? Does the universe work this way to guide us about what real friendship is all about? Does the person who helps feel liberated himself in the same way? Or is it just one of those unexplained things? Whichever way, I am NOT complaining.

To that friend, Thank You!

Wow...someone had been in my shoes sometime back...huh? I am in a total mess...well kind of...and I really in NEED of a person to bail me out...and I am also waiting that 'friend' to come and set me free...:) and when it happens I know it would be magical :) you are true - in a way this might be how universe is working...I call the friends who help us at the right time as 'angels' - for they come out of nowhere but do their duty, bestow their blessings and leave their mark forever...that is angelic and magical...

Graffiti Speak, I dont know whether this makes sense but- when you look out for someone to help you, you have to wait for a very long time. The moment you stop, someone comes and helps you. Works every single time. Just try forgetting about this for a while, and an angel will appear!
