Touched by An Angel

I was bummed yesterday when I dropped Jake at the Vet. Jim snaps at me when I was teasing him if he could just drop Jake before he goes to work. It was a bad-timing, my fault. He was grouchy when he woke up. It’s been 3 days that he never had enough sleep. I understand all his stress at work and all the hassles with the house renovations. I just give him a cold shoulder for the next few hours. He knew me and yes, I was hurt.

I wasn’t on the right mood when I picked Jake. Then, there is this charming, little girl who was trying to help the lady who worked at the reception. She’s the Vet’s youngest daughter.

Can I help you? I’m available!” she told the lady.

Okay, you can take the meds out of the box and put it in the table”, she replied.

Then, she realized I was there.

Oh, hi! How are you? What’s your name?” she asked.

I’m Sharon, what’s yours?” I replied.

I’m Carolina.

She was busy putting all the meds on the table. Then, she got the plastic bubble wrap from the box.

Do you wanna take this at home?” she asked innocently with matching high-brows.

Your kids can pop it, it’s real fun!” she exclaimed.

I was so stunned at her and when I asked her age; she said she’s 4.

Anyway, the drama between me and my husband ended after a thorough discussions and apologies before dinner. Thanks to the sweet, little angel who was sent to put smile on my lips which makes my day better. It was pretty simple and yet, touching.

Isn't it great when God sends us angels in the most unexpected ways?

I call little moments like that "God's tender mercies". I know He cares about the details of our lives. I'm glad you and Jim were able to smooth things out too.
Have a great day! :)
