I think I was sent an angel...

July 19th, 2011 at 07:18 am

I live in a very small condo association where there are renters and owners of one and two bedroom condos. I'v become friendly with the ladies that water the plants and walk their dogs. One lady is retired and does volunteer work for the Salvation Army and we've talked about the economy, the state of how alot of people are going through hard times. She has been bringing me coupons every few weeks and she seems to care about me & my son. She signed me up for food from the SA and when I got home last night, there were two, big, heavy boxes of food! Rice, beans, mac n cheese, even cheese and chicken quarters. It is enough to last at least a month. She was a memeber of the chamber of commerce for many years and knows alot of "stuff" and she is going to ask the owner of a one bedroom right next to me, if I could move into his apartment, as he keeps it for a tax write off and won't rent to anyone buy family. This apartment is $535 and would be such a blessing if I could move and not need to rent a truck or all sorts of man power. Anyway, the more I talk with her the more I realize there is hope for me and many people going through hard times. I'm even going to volunteer at the SA once a month or more, because I want to be a part of something that helps so many families. I feel that life is not a set path and there are people and circumstances that come our way and they change my perspective about my journey in this lifetime. People need to reach out and pull their neighbor up and offer the help because you never know how someone could be suffering.

    I am not outgoing by nature and tend toward the social-phobiac at times, but I have reached out more recently to others in ned (not that i can help that much) but every bit helps, even if it is a smile and casserole or OTC meds that you have too much of. I hope it works out well for you. Angels, indeed!

    I'm so glad to hear that. It's about time you had some good luck. Not only does the material stuff help, but knowing there are people out there who care about you and know what a tough time there is...Sounds like that made the biggest difference of all for you!

    How nice that there is someone that has taken you under their wing. I agree with CeeJay...it's about time something nice happened for you.

    This sounds so wonderful. When people reach out with love and kindness they ARE angels!! Wooohoo. I hope you get the apartment.

    I hope that this leads to a great solution for your situation! The thing that I like the most is that you are also looking for ways to pay it forward, which is insurance that the good stuff moves on and helps other people, as well. Smile Jerry
