I always have.
Especially angels here on earth.
I’ve had quite a few experiences happen to me in my life where I know never to doubt the existence of an angel.
They come in many different shapes and sizes, and they never continue to surprise me.
I had an experience tonight that I just need to share.
We decided to take the boys out to dinner tonight, we had some great news happen today with Matt and some beautiful closure today with our own little angel. Life is good and we wanted to celebrate that, even on a day that gave us some sadness, but also some incredible news of my husband’s 6-month cat scan being CLEAR! That was news we were BEYOND excited to receive!
As we were leaving the restaurant, a woman walked out the door behind me saying, “Excuse me!”
I turned and saw it was the woman who had been sitting the next booth over from us.
“You didn’t hear me try and tell you inside as you were leaving, but I wanted to tell you how blessed you are with your 4 sons. They’re so handsome and were so well-behaved. My husband and I have been sitting there watching and just admiring. You’re very lucky.”
I was so taken aback, especially with what happened today, that I teared up.
I told her what happened this morning and how beautiful and needed it was in that moment, and on this very day for a stranger to tell us that. I couldn’t hold back my emotions, it just really hit me like a big bear hug.
She looked at me and said, “I’m not able to have children, so I always love seeing families together, it warms my heart. I’m blessed to have nieces and nephews as my children. You will be in my prayers.”
I hugged her tight and said, “You will be in mine.”
It was an incredible moment.
I got in the car, looked at Matt and said, “I can’t believe that just happened.”
Somewhere, somehow, someone sent her to us tonight.
