Angels among us.

Monday, January 28, 2013

I have not written a blog in a long time. I had actually recently got back in to it on a regular basis. Life just went to the crapper. With being a single mom who paid for everythingÖbraces, sylvan learning center so he could graduate. I pleaded with the court and kept him out of jail. Meantime every time I asked his dad for help I was told it was a waste of money. I guess his sonís future was a waste of money. Needless to say I got my finances in order and even had all my credit cards paid off. Then on the move back home to Utah (I moved to Texas with him so he could go to Cordon Bleu) his car broke down and not only did it max out my cards I also had to borrow a little from my bank. Each month that passed after that I told myself I could do it. I can catch up. But the truth was that the snowball kept getting bigger and bigger.
I have been as much of my personal items as possible. And tonight (15 minutes ago) I picked up a receipt from Wal-Mart from 2 weeks ago and checked off what I could return. Swiffer pads, 2 cans of tuna and air freshener. That was going to get me 15.47 back.
Once when Jim was 4, I was having a hard time getting and keeping jobs. And I was not a habitual Medicaid type person.

I went to the mailbox one day and there was an envelope that said From an Angel. When I opened it, there was a 50.00 bill. To this day I still do not know who it was.
Tonight I went to my mailbox and there was a yellow envelope. As much as I knew it was coming I was still surprised to see it. Another Angel has stepped in to my life. I am going to cry right now. We see so much inhumanity than when something like this happens you know there is hope, for humanity and for myself. Now I can buy groceries that I won't have to return.

I donít want to mention her name, for her privacy. But she definitely has wings.

Thank you so much. Now I hope to pay it forward someday.

  How sweet is that! I have been both an angel and a recipient. I am fortunate that at this point in my life I am able to pass along what others have freely given to me, you will get there too!

    When times are difficult we need to hold these blessings in our hearts to remember the goodness that is all around!

    I know the feeling as I have been both the recipient in hard times and the 'angel' at other times.
