Guardian Angels Still Exist

Thursday, November 15, 2012

I was reminded this past Tuesday morning at 7:15 a.m., that angels still walk and drive amongst us! My vehicle broke down on the Veterans Bridge in the middle lane of traffic…taking my normal commute to a whole new level.  You see, I had my precious two-year-old granddaughter in the car with me and the car had lost all power and we were stuck with very heavy traffic flying right up to us, slamming on brakes, swerving  and fishtailing all around us….I am sure that you can get the very terrifying picture.

I prayed to God for the safety of my most prized possession in this world…my granddaughter….I called 911 for help as I could not move her safely from the car because of the speeding traffic..it honestly felt like an eternity until a white truck pulled up alongside me and he saw how terrified I was…he quickly took control of the situation, got out of his own vehicle and attached a rope and pulled my car out of harm’s way.

So, this is a reminder that angels do exist in the form of good hearted, giving human beings and I met one !  His name is Aaron Smith and he and his family just happen to own S and S Auto Repair and no….he did not mention his line of work once…I  glanced at his shirt after the terror was losing its grip on me.  He just saw two people that really needed help and he took action.

So, Aaron…..Sagan and I say thank you, thank you and may God bless you and you.

It is aptly called, “You Could Have Heard A Pin Drop.” Before I do, I got a sweet note the other day from my dear friend ... (click for more)

New Walmart Neighborhood Market Is A Step Back For The East Brainerd Community

Driving out East Brainerd Road recently, I was excited to see that what I thought was the run down strip center being renovated was actually a new Walmart Neighborhood Market.  I believe that this is the same type facility that was proposed for Middle Valley, but was rejected by the local citizens living in that area. I don't recalling hearing anything about any neighborhood ... (click for more)
