I just experienced one of the most amazing moments of my life, and want to share it with my dearest friends and family.

While driving home from a meeting this evening, stuck in traffic on Colorado Blvd., the car started to choke, splutter and eventually died.

I barely managed to coast, cursing, into a gas station, glad that I would not be blocking traffic and would have a somewhat warm spot to wait for a tow truck.

The car’s engine wouldn't even turn over.

Before I could make the call, I saw a woman walking out of the "quickie mart" building.

It looked like she slipped on some ice and fell into a gas pump, so I got out to see if she was okay.

When I reached her, it looked more like she had been overcome by sobs than a fall; she was young woman, and looked haggard with dark circles under her eyes.

She dropped something, as I helped her up, I picked it up to give it back to her.

It was a nickel.

At that moment, everything came into focus for me: the crying woman, the ancient Suburban crammed full of stuff, three kids in the back (one in a car seat), and the gas pump reading $4.95.

I asked her if she was okay and if she needed help

She cried and kept repeating, "I don't want my kids to see me crying."

So we stood on the other side of the pump from her car.

She said she was driving to California and that things were very hard for her right now.

I asked, "And you were praying?"

My comment made her back away from me a little.

I assured her I was not a crazy person and added, "He heard you, and sent me."

I took out my credit card and swiped it through the card reader on the gas pump, to complete filling her car.

While it was fueling, I walked next door to a McDonald's and bought two big bags of food, some food gift certificates, and a big cup of coffee.

She gave the food to the kids, in the car, who attacked it like wolves, while we stood beside the gas pump eating fries and talking.

She told me her name, and that she lived in Kansas City.

Her boyfriend left them two months ago, and she had not been able to make ends meet.

She knew she wouldn't have money to pay next month’s rent, and finally in desperation she phoned her parents, with whom she had not spoken with in five years.

Her parents live in California and they said she was welcome to live with them while she got back on her feet.

So she packed up everything she owned in the car....and here she was.

She told the kids they were going to California for Christmas, but not that they were going to live there.

I gave her my gloves, a little hug and said a quick prayer with her for safety on the road.

As I was walking over to my car, she said, "So, are you like an Angel or something?"

Her words stopped me in my tracks and made me cry.

I said, "Sweetie, sometimes Angels are busy, so God uses regular people."

It was incredible to be a part of someone else's miracle.

And of course, you guessed it!

When I got in my car it started right away and it got me home with no problem.

I'll put it in the shop tomorrow to check, but I suspect the mechanic won't find anything wrong.

Often Angels fly close enough to us that you can hear the flutter of their wings...

Angels touch us
through writing,
the kindness of strangers,
or words of wisdom
spoken by a friend.

111 Medical Miracle
by Erin in Phoenix, Arizona

Halo Mary Ellen,

I love your newsletter and have a 111 miracle story for your readers!

A number of years ago, I enrolled as a potential bone marrow donor.

I haven't heard anything since that day.

I always held the hope that they might call.

After all, this is a way to potentially save someone's life!

Early last November, a call came from a woman at the Bone Marrow Registry telling me that I was a potential match for someone who was very ill.

The woman casually mentioned that I had signed up as a donor on November 1,1997. 11-1

She then said, "Oh, wow!”

“Your name came up on November 1, 2004 that's seven years to the day! 11-1"

“What a coincidence!"

I knew it wasn’t! 111 is a sign that the Angels are trying to get our attention!

Many people told me not to get my hopes up as it is very unlikely that I would be a good match, but I told each one, "I will be the match.”

There is no doubt in my mind." 11/1/97 and 11/1/04 -- that's Angels at work!

Several weeks later, I was notified that I am a match.

Although the woman I am matched with is not yet ready for a bone marrow transplant, I am ready, and will be there for her.

With love,
Erin in Phoenix, Arizona

I can't do all the good
the world needs,
but the world needs
all the good I can do.

~ Jana Stanfield ~

“Donating organs is like passing
along our old clothes to someone
who needs them.”

“Now that we have leaned that our
soul doesn’t need our physical body
after we die, it’s almost immoral not
to donate our body parts.”

“Dead as I’ll Ever Be”
~ Pamela J. Evans ~

Donating your organs is the last
act of generosity that you will
ever do.

Keeping them is the last act of
selfishness that you will ever do.

Virginia’s Prayer

I just had eye surgery and the nurse asked me before surgery if the doctor could pray over me.

He did, and he asked the medical team to be guided and perform their best.

I was thrilled.

I was elated and felt I was truly in God’s hands!

committed citizens can change the world;
indeed, it's the only thing that ever has.
