Miracles are ever-present in many
ways and many times in our lives.
When you open your heart and ask
to be a Divine vehicle for miracles
to work through you to touch the
lives of others ... miracles will
manifest on a near daily basis.
It is your intention that has the

Bless you dear soul.
The Wishing Tree Miracle
by Mary Ellen ^I^ "Angel Scribe"
Often someone prays ... and we are
the earth angels who answer the call.
The prayer goes from their heart, to
God's capable hands and out to the
earth angel who has opened themselves
up to be the vehicle for miracles and
prayers to work through them.
Early in November a sixteen-year-old
boy named Mitchell requested
ART SUPPLIES from a social
agency as his Christmas Wish.
The request was printed onto a
red-felt heart-shaped tag and
placed onto a Wish Tree in a mall.
The wish swung there with hundreds
of other's wishes for weeks and
thousands of people walked by
the tree each day.
Who ever would think this Wish Tree
would become part of answered
prayers for Mitchell and me.
Back on November 16th, after I finished
a successful one-hour radio show
with Jill Lawrence's, "Jill & Friends,"
on Wisdom Radio, I went for a walk.
(Listen on www.wisdomradio.com it
is archived under Jill Lawrence's shows)
After a mile, the thought came to
me to bravely walk over to a local
"famous artist's" home, knock on
her door and introduce myself.
I had known about this woman for
12 years and never have been brave
enough to introduce myself.
Her home had not one, but two,
"NO SOLICITATION" signs on
it and that kept me away.
Many times over the years I
had wanted to meet this
intriguing woman but those
two signs warned me that
this was someone who valued
But, this day the strong feeling
to walk over and ring her door
bell consumed me.
I had no idea what to say.
I knew little about her, just that
a dear friend had once said I
should meet her.
I knocked on her door and heard
someone approach the door and
peek out the key hole at me.
The door opened part way ... and
there stood someone I instantly
felt I wanted to know as a friend.
I knew the woman who opened
the door was a famous artist in
Mexico, she had lived there, but
I did not know how well her English
I blurted out, "Hi, my name is
Mary Ellen, too, and you are
a famous artist, I am a famous
author, we both live in Cottage
Grove and I think it is time we met."
Whew...I wondered how she would react.
Mary Ellin Mahoney, who professionally
goes by Maria Elena, with no last name...
swung the door wide open, said
"tocaya" in Spanish and invited me
Mary Ellin and I are both vegetarians,
neither of us use our last name professionally,
we both live on either side of the
local elementary school, we are both
half English/Irish...we looked related.
She is 20 years older than I, but we have
so much in common, our outlooks on life,
humor, etc., are parallel.
She is as immersed in the spiritual world
as I am by leading her life with her heart
As I sat there chatting with her she said,
"I have waited 30 years for you." Finally
she had someone to openly share with.
I had no idea this reclusive woman knew
so few folks in town.
She did not drive and hardly went out.
Each day she is immersed in her
painting from sun up to sun set.
After we chatted for an hour the sun
was setting and the room was getting
dark. Maria Elena said, "I want to turn
on the lights, but I am afraid if I move,
you will leave."
It was at that moment I knew she
was enjoying my company as much
as I was hers.
Since we met three weeks ago
we go out on errands together
nearly every day. Her children
in town say, "You are never home now."
If I did not have the nerve to
knock on a total stranger's
door her life and mine would
not have been as joy filled as
the last few weeks have been.
Maria Elena is an answer to my
prayer to find new friends in town.
Another amazing aspect of our
meeting was when I told my friend
Atira about the courage it took to
knock on a stranger's door and
the results she said, "Mary Ellen,
as soon as you moved to Cottage
Grove I have been praying for you
to meet a new best friend to fill your
days with love."
How unconditionally loving!
Atira said, "Mary Ellen, you taught me
that we can all have many best friends.
To be loved by many is a blessing."
A few weeks later Maria Elena and
I went on an excursion to Eugene,
20 minutes up the freeway, where
we stopped in at a local mall.
For 2 hours we wandered past
Christmas displays and discussed gifts.
I popped into the bookstore and
signed their copies of EXPECT
MIRACLES and A CHRISTMAS
FILLED WITH MIRACLES.
We were having quite a day.
It was not until we were leaving
the mall that Mitchell's miracle
We had walked by the Giving
Tree on our way into the mall
and as we walked by it again I
saw Maria Elena stop...cock
her head to the side, as if she
were listening to her Angels.
Then she walked over to the tree
put her hand out and pulled off the
tag that said, "Sixteen year old boy
would like ART SUPPLIES and a shirt."
Who better to understand this
young man's desire and passion
for art work than Maria Elena?
Who better to be his earth angel
and answer his prayer?
Sometimes it takes many earth
angels to make a dream, a prayer
or wish manifest.
The angels at the society who
created the Christmas Wish Tree,
my courage to knock on an artist's
door, and her quiet listening to her
Angels who encouraged her to walk
up to the tree.
This week Maria Elena and I are
going to drive back to the mall and
leave the biggest box ever under
the tree for Mitchell.
She found over 30 art supplies in her
home and also purchased new ones.
Mitchell is getting a complete art studio
of supplies and 2 shirts to make his
Christmas come true.
Be brave in your life...what doors do
you need to knock on that can create
miracles in your life and in the lives of others?
