My Guardian Angel
When Woman’s World reader Glen Parker and his wife, Sharon, of Comox, British Columbia, needed help behind the wheel, an angel stepped in! He writes:
"His crooked smile and charming manner put us at ease,"Glen marvels
Not long ago, my wife, Sharon, and I purchased a 31-foot camper, with plans of doing some sightseeing in the United States.
The camper was big enough for us to travel in comfort, but I had never towed anything this large before and soon realized that I had a lot to learn about navigating a vehicle this size.
On our very first trip, we spied a mall that appeared to be very near the highway and decided to do some shopping.
We exited the highway and easily found the mall. But too late, I realized that I’d driven into the wrong entrance.
The driveway dead-ended abruptly with large concrete barriers.
Now what were we supposed to do? I was somewhat anxious about backing up and perhaps putting a dent in our brand-new camper. And there was very little room to turn around.
For a few minutes, Sharon and I sat looking at each other, wondering how we were ever going to get out of the mess we were in.
Both my wife and I are avid fans of the “My Guardian Angel” column in Woman’s World, and we immediately came to the conclusion that the help of an angel would be most welcome.
Amazingly, no sooner than our words were spoken, a truck suddenly appeared alongside us.
Where had it come from? Honestly, it was as though the truck had materialized out of thin air.
“Having some trouble?” the driver asked with a little crooked grin.
We nodded our heads in unison.
“I think I can help you,” he said. After surveying our situa
tion, he got behind “His crooked smile and the wheel of our truck,
and in no time, he charming manner put us
had our trailer turned at ease,” Glen marvels around and pointed
in the right direction. It would be an understatement to say that we were astounded, and to this day we do not know exactly how he did it. But we were very thankful for his help.
Who was that man and where did he come from? we asked ourselves a little later when we were safely parked at the mall. It was amazing how he suddenly showed up at just the right time. We had to agree that he was indeed our guardian angel.
Now, whenever Sharon and I travel we always ask for angels to surround and protect us. But we still talk about the angel with a crooked grin who helped us get out of the mess we were in and are eternally grateful.
“No situation is impossible for the angels!” says Doreen Virtue, PH.D. “Glen’s story shows that the angels are watching over us wherever we are!
“I’ve noticed that when people get help with their vehicle, they always say that the angel looks a bit odd. So the truck driver’s crooked smile fits with the pattern.
“Rescuing angels also appear from out of nowhere, know just what to do— often providing extraordinary assistance—then disappear before you can say thank you.
“I’m so glad an angel came to help Glen and Sharon.”
