With Thanksgiving SO close ... only a few weeks away ... I can't help but feel thankful for all the blessings in my life. My health, close friends, extended family, AND all of you! As my blog title emphasizes "In Time ...," I truly believe timing is everything. At pivotal times in my life someone has ALWAYS been there for me, which leads me to today's post.
Last week I had been visiting Morgan Shamy's blog, a WONDERFUL and SPECIAL person, so if you don't know her, drop by her blog and say Hi. As I read her post, my jaw slightly dropped and a smile formed on my lips ... "YES!" I thought ... "The PERFECT Thanksgiving EARTHLY ANGELS story.
For those of you who are not familiar with my EA posts, let me explain. During the blizzard of 2010, I had read an amazing story of a woman who had drove through "Thunder snow" for thirty miles to rescue her sister as well as a few other stranded strangers. This woman was an Earthly Angel. These AMAZING people are selfless, caring, and ask for nothing in return. One might also call them a good Samaritan, but for me these people were sent by God. Many enter our lives for one brief moment and then disappear. This is the case with Morgan's story. Let her tell you in her own words....
"Eight years ago hubs and I went to Iceland. We landed at 1:00 in the morning, with nothing but the packs on our backs and a Reykjavik stamp in our passports. We didn’t have a place to stay, with only a few dollars in our pockets. We had been herded out of the airport without any transportation and were left outside in the freezing temperatures with the nearest hotel being $400 a night.
I believe we all have the power to be an EA, so if you see a person in need, don't hesitate to lend a hand, we all have the gift for compassion and caring. Let's make our world a better place to live. After all, "Tis the season ...."
Have a great weekend everyone.
