Angels Among Us

So, it was Wednesday of last week. I was all caught up on my dress orders (whew!) and I was looking forward to taking Lacey to story time at the Camden Library. I also knew I needed to run to Blythewood to run a few errands, but I could do that any day. Wednesday was story time. We were all dressed and ready. I was stir crazy from a week of sewing and I was determined to get out of the house! We got in the car and it was the oddest thing, but I just couldn't go to Camden. I kept feeling like I should go to Blythewood. SO, to Blythewood we headed. I was feeling guilty all the way because I thought Lacey needed to go to story time.
I get to Blythewood, ran some errands and as I'm pulling out of a store, something felt strange. FLAT TIRE!! Ack. I tried to get Travis at work but their phone system was out that day. As I hung up my phone, I looked up and there was Brother Dinkins (Valencia's dad, Ginger's granddad) peeking his head out of B&D Auto. I walked over to B&D hoping Bro. Dinkins could tell me who to call. Well, he would have none of that. He stopped what he was doing and put my spare on for me. He gave me B&D's phone number in case something went wrong on my way home. I was soooo thankful for Bro. Dinkins. He was my angel on Wed – right there when I needed help. What a blessing for me! I'm thankful that I didn't go to Camden, even though I wanted to. Nobody would have been there to help me and I would have been stranded for quite a while. Bro. Dinkins had me on the road on 45 minutes. There are angels among us. I hope to pay his good deed forward!

How sweet of you to post this. Yes, I believe there are angels everywhere, too, and Daddy was saying how sweet you and Lacey were that day. I'm glad you broke down there and he was able to help. Have a great week and I'm looking forward to Enrichment night - it really sounds like fun.

Granddaddy WAS telling us on Sunday how sweet you and Lacey were! I'm so glad that he was there too...he's always willing to lend a helping hand.
