Angels Among Us

Christmas Carolers (Angels) came to our house and sang to our Marine!  What a special treat and no easy feat.  We live 25 miles from town and 4 miles back in the woods!  We were absolutely thrilled.  I couldn't get all the carolers (angels) in the picture.  They were on both sides of our sons bed and standing outside his room.

The young lady in the red sweater at the head of the bed told us of her own Christmas Angel.  My niece babysits her and her sister while her Mom works on Fridays.  They were standing in line at Walmart and the young lady struck up a conversation with an elderly lady (angel) in line.  After chatting a few minutes the elderly lady (angel) asked my niece if she could give the young lady some Christmas money.  My niece agreed and thanked her.  When the elderly lady (angel) checked out she turned and handed the young lady with my niece a one hundred dollar bill and simply walked out of the store.    Needless to say the young lady asked my niece if they could shop a little longer.  The young lady spent her new found wealth on Christmas presents for her family!

My friend and former employee came over a few days ago to bring us a Christmas cake and had her own Christmas Angel story.  She went to the post office last Saturday to mail her granddaughters their Christmas presents and the debit machine was out of paper and it could not be used.  My friend had no cash or checkbook with her. The clerk in the PO could not find paper.  My friend told the clerk that was OK she would just come back Monday to mail them but the clerk told her to wait around a few minutes as he was waiting on a call from the Post Master to tell him where the paper was located.  He also said if the package didn't go out that day it may not make it before Christmas.  There were a couple of people in line behind her and one man (angel) asked how much was the postage and he pulled out his wallet and paid for the package, another man (angel) wanted to get in on this giving spirit and he paid the first angel half of the original postage.

May you all have a very Blessed and Merry Christmas!
