Angel Watching Over Me

I was only 2 the last time I saw anyone in my Dad's family. My parents had some bad problems, so it was decided that it would be best for them to stay out of our lives. I'm 15 now, and my whole life I'd always wondered who they were, what they were like, did I look like them? Filled with curiosity I had tried to find them a few times, but I never could seem to find anything.
A few weeks ago before Thanksgiving, my Gramma got a call from my Dad's sister. She was only 13 the last time she'd seen me. She wanted to know if we were ok, and maybe if we would feel like meeting anyone. I called her and we talked and cried most of the time.
Finally I decided I was going to go meet my family. We drove from Houston up to the little town in Oklahoma, and I was scared to death. What was I supposed to say to these strangers that were my family? Me and my mom pulled up to the house, my sister had decided she wasn't ready to meet anyone yet.
Suddenly I wasn't as nervous anymore, I felt peaceful, like everything was going to be ok. After hugging and crying outside, the BIG family I have all went into the house. I never paid attention to the room we were in or where I sat. I just picked a spot and sat. I was too busy trying to remember who everyone was!!! We took tons of pictures that day, and it was a few days later that my boyfriend Ben took me to get them developed.
I didn't notice anything unusual about them, they looked like normal pictures to me. Me sitting on the couch surrounded by family. Ben pointed out something funny to me a few days later though, in every picture I was sitting under the painting of a guardian angel. We don't know if it was the flash bouncing off the painting, but in everyone it was shining bright.
I don't know if it means anything to anyone, but to me that was my angel. Sitting above me the whole time, watching over me, making sure I was ok.
