Celestine Agents

Last day I was talking to a friend, and she told me something pretty amazing that she read somewhere.

“How’d it be if we knew that there is someone paying heed to all our wishes and assigning an agent fulfill them?”

That one ‘thought-let’ has been up in my head lately. And then, on this day of Xmas, I am convinced that we all are each other’s Santa Claus, fulfilling each other’s wishes.

The guy who got you 5 minutes late because he awkwardly parked his car blocking your way – yeah, the one you are still swearing – was an agent of your mother’s wish who is praying back at home for your long life, as you were about to become the part of a fatal accident at the next crossroad. We may not know, but whatever someone is doing to us, they are doing it for our good. Sometimes we realise it, sometimes we don’t.

With this first post of my personal blog, I wish you a merry Christmas.  Despite its odds, your life is already very beautiful, hope you realise it.

Let us remember all the Santa’s of our life. Here is a picture with a friend of mine who became my Santa today by suggesting this awesome blog name. Read that story here.

So, now I would like you to share at least one event or situation where you felt the presence of these ‘Celestine Agents’ around you – in the comment section below.

Please don’t be a ghost reader. Do leave a trace. Let me know you are there. I am eagerly looking forward to reading and replying to your comments.

With regards,

  1. Okay, so this incident happened to me a month ago. I came to the class late , as usual after being absent for almost a week, and it was unfortunately the day to submit an assignment in class. Dazed, I ached for help as I looked around. And there she was, a friend of mine, who was standing right there with my assignment! OH, I SWEAR SHE LOOKED LIKE AN ANGEL TO ME or what you call a ‘ CELSETINE AGENT!’

    PS. Thankyou.
    PSS. I like your article!
