A Tell Me Something Good Story – Angels Among Us

I love getting messages like this and wanted to share it with you.

“My Mom, Flo Blackmarr, and I were finishing up her birthday celebration lunch on Friday 12/13/13 at Lumberjacks, getting ready to eat our ice cream for dessert, when the waitress said we could just take our time, no hurry, and that when we were ready we could just leave. Seeing my puzzled look, she explained that the couple who had been seated at the booth near us (who had already left) had picked up our tab – they paid for our lunch! They didn’t know the struggles my Mom has living with Alzheimer’s, how special our lunch together as mother & daughter was, that it was the first time in a long, long time that Mom has been able to go out to eat at a restaurant,or that it was her 85th birthday we were celebrating, but God did! What an awesome blessing and appreciated gift from these strangers! Angels really are among us – and they made my day, no my year! Thank you whoever you are!”
