I have believed in angels ever since I was a little girl. I remember wanting to be an angel in the nativity play at primary school but for some reason I was made to wear a tea towel on my head and sing in the choir. I was not happy. I remember seeing the other girls dressed up as angels in their pretty costumes and wings and I remember feeling most put out.
As a child on Sundays at church I remember not wanting to move up close to the next person in case my angel got squashed.
You see angels as statues in Churches and Cathedrals and it always surprises me that they do not get mentioned much during religious ceremonies. It was the one bit of the church experience that I could really connect with growing up because I could feel them all around.
