Of angels and cell phones

To The Editor:

It's been a while since I was moved or inspired to write to you. What happened to me this morning has me excited.

I stopped my car in front of the Post Office, as I had several items to attend to inside. As I was finished and turned to leave, I reached for my keys, but they were not in my purse or pocket. Nor were my extra set of keys. There were two people in the lobby; I asked if either had a cell phone. Negative. I went inside the doors and asked if anyone had a cell phone - negative from three others. As I turned to go back out, the one woman who had been in there came to me as she remembered a cell phone in her car. We went out together - sure enough she had one and did call. I thanked her and she drove off. I never saw her before, don't know her name, but I do know that I received another hug from Heaven, cause an angel she was; and then the police woman came and got the door open. The angels were with me surely, as they always are, of course.

I hope you experience many hugs from Heaven, too. Also, I do like your editorials lately. You are blessed.
