Today, I was standing in line at the Dollar Store. There are so many people here who have fallen on hard times...so many unemployed. The Dollar Store is a very busy place now, and there are lots of sad faces.
As my things were being rung up, I looked at the customer being rung up in the next lane. Her face was sad and drawn and looked gray - like she was sick. She looked defeated and heavy with grief. I did something I've never done before. I asked my angels to wrap the stranger in love and lift her up, to hug her and kiss her and make her feel delightfully happy and as light as a feather. I asked them to fill her with joy and make her laugh. I also asked them to heal her of whatever was making her look so gray. I imagined the angels surrounding her.
Right before my eyes, the corners of her mouth started to lift!! I quickly looked away so she wouldn't see me looking at her, and then I heard laughter! LOUD laughter! I looked, and it was her! She was positively beaming, and she said to the cashier "do you know what I'm going to do? I am going to go out to eat!!" She then practically skipped out of the store. As she passed me, I saw her skin was healthy and pink. I watched her drive away, beaming with joy, and I prayed that her angels would keep her wrapped in love and fill her with faith that everything will be alright.
My grandmother told me that every one of us has a whole host of angels from heaven surrounding us, and they will do what we ask. I believe it is literally true!
