Letter to the editor... Among angels

Dear Editor: Let me tell you a true story. On Saturday afternoon, my husband was stung by many yellow jackets. He was in a lot of pain. We treated him with everything we could think of and finally he said, "If you’ll go into Wal-Mart and buy some Benedryl, I’ll drive you." So, off we go. He drove me up to the front door and said, "Call my cell phone when you’re finished and I‘ll come back and pick you up." OK, I reply and get out of the car and go into Wal-Mart (I did not see which direction he turned, and since it was tax-free weekend in Georgia, the parking lot was full to the brim.) It took me all of 5 minutes to pick up the medicine, even was able to check out without waiting which was a miracle. That is when I realized I did not have my cell phone with me. I go out front and tried to look for our car which was an impossible job. There were too many cars. So, I thought, "I’ll just stand here and count on him getting aggravated because I’m taking so long and come looking for me." While I was standing there, a woman walked up and we began to talk. She said she was waiting on her son to pick her up. Naturally, I told her about my problem. She asked what kind of car I had and I told her. Well, her son came and we said goodbye. A few minutes later I saw my husband driving down to pick me up. That woman must have had her son drive all over that parking lot looking for our car. What are the chances that there was only one dark green Honda (that was the only description I had given her) in the whole lot? Anyway, the son got out of the car and went over to my husband and asked if he were waiting on his wife which he said that he was. So he told him that I was out in front of Wal-Mart waiting for him. I believe that God sent that woman (an angel?) to help me. My feet were killing me from standing in one spot (heel spurs) and there was no way I could have walked that whole lot looking for our car. How many times do we entertain angels without knowing it? Thought you would appreciate hearing that God is still in the business of miracles. Today, he gave me two! Thank you, God, and thank you angels for coming to my rescue.
