You may remember that I posted about helping a friend pack and move. What I didn't tell you is that this move has a double-edged sadness. Not only is she leaving the home she loves, but the sad truth is that she has to. A recent widow, she simply cannot afford to stay. She is losing her home. But now the good news...Late yesterday as we were working feverishly to get ready for a garage sale a woman appeared asking to come in and shop a whole day early! How rude... the nerve--, but we let her in and she shopped. Today when we awoke it was bitterly cold and raining, weather perfect to match our moods. But next the miracle. The same lady reappeared and this time she came bearing a thermos of coffee, half and half, bananas, doughnuts. bagels, cream cheese, paper plates, and cups! It was as if she had sensed the sadness in our souls. She refused to give us her name and address so we could write her a thank you note. I know her name however......Angel. Thank you, whoever you are. Now this was truly one of those random act of kindness I wrote about earlier.
