Welcome to my weekly post. Earthly Angels. Each week I will feature stories from all of you: my blogging buddies. So please feel free to leave a story of an Earthly Angel that you know in the comments or email me directly. I would love to hear about it.
In this weeks segment, I'll be featuring some very special husbands. Men who earned the title of an Earthly Angel.
The first is from a wonderful and sweet lady who has helped me on several occasions.

"My husband was an earthly angel a few Chritmases ago. He didn't tell me until much later, but he choose a very crowded WalMart parking lot and put tiny Teddy bears under the wipers of the worst looking cars in the parking lot. Inside those tiny little bear's pockets, he put money!"
"My hubby is 6'2" in stockinged feet, and kind of hunky despite his profession Neuro Science & Psychology. He happened on an elderly man receiving abuse and suffering intimidation from a teen on a mountain bike. This was in Putney, London, a CCTV camera located nearby. The old guy looked really scared and hubby stepped in to warn the kid off. The kid got lippy and suggested hubby would do best to f*ck off or he'd call for backup. Hubby laughed, the kid got stroppy and said something to the effect hubby was all mouth and that he'd be meat when his mates got there. The old man took the hint and made safe his escape, while hubby let the kid rant-off cell phone in hand saying if hubby didn't f*ck off he'd be in big sh*t. Hubby by now had had enough and suggested that if the kid and mates cared to meet him in the alley out of sight of the CCTV they could sort their differences and see who was the braver. The kid sudden upped, spun his bike round and pedalled off shouting abuse over his shoulder."
"As for the Earthly Angel, the first person who always comes to mind is my husband. Not for any of the usual sappy reasons, though. Here's the latest example: Night before last, a couple of loudmouth drunks were duking it out in the parking lot outside our apartment building. After about 20 minutes of cursing at each other, they left, honking the horn all the way. Fifteen minutes later they returned, screaming at each other again. I had heard enough, put my coat and slippers on, and headed for the door to put a stop to the nonsense and potential catastrophe. Hubby didn't even try to stop me. He just quietly followed. I didn't try to intervene but slipped behind the vehicle and memorized the license plate number, then relayed it to Hubby who called the police. He has a presence of mind seldom seen in this world."
Next week I already have one incredible Earthly Angel's couple. I would love to hear about two more. So if you know of an amazing couple please let me know. Of course, I am always interested to hear any Earthly Angels story. I'd like to have different features each week. I'd also like to hear about any special children that you may know. I hope you enjoyed this week's post.
