It took a while to choose the stories. Each one was so sweet and heart touching. Some were comical. Others made me laugh out loud. Some brought tears.
Each story is a true experience of a hello from Heaven. I hope you will enjoy Angel Bumps as much as I did gathering the stories. There are sixty-one stories from people of all different walks of life. Eleven of the stories are my own.
The title for the book, Angel Bumps, was chosen because while goose bumps and angel bumps may look the same, Angel Bumps usually appear when there is no chill in the air. They arrive when we’re thinking about someone we lost, when we hear a story that rings true, or we see something that reminds us of them. When we feel their presence, I liken it to an angel’s wing brushing you lightly.
I truly honor the people who shared their stories. Many had tears writing them. It was painful for some to re-live the memories. One in particular, had a very difficult time telling her story. When she finished, she was lighter and brighter. Just releasing the feelings she’d held onto for years, was cathartic.
And so the excitement continues. Angel Bumps is in her soft release stage. The official launch date is Sept 14th. We’re #4 on Amazon’s Hot New Releases/ Religious as of Sept 8th.
I’d encourage you to read some of the reviews posted on Amazon. The reviews alone will make you smile and touch your heart.
“Reading Angel Bumps makes you feel wrapped in angel wings. If you believe in angels (or you’ve ever needed one) this book is a beautiful must read. I’m ordering a box for Christmas and giving one to everyone I love.” Vikki Claflin/ author
“Take a deep breath and hold on to your heart because you are going on an emotion, spiritual and loving journey. You will laugh. You will cry. You will exclaim your belief in Angels.” Marie Bainbridge/ hospice nurse.
“Anne Bardsley has compiled stories that allow you to look at life from a different lens, a more hopeful one, and certainly a more peaceful one. Some may bring tears as you recall situations in your own life similar to these….all pointing to the fact we are not alone, but encircled by love.” Donna Tagliaferri, Caterer
