After a month, I quit my job, and bought a train ticket back home to western Washington. I sat there on the train, feeling like a failure and still very alone. I had no idea what to do after giving up on my first real job. Right then I needed a friend.
Before leaving Libby, I had bought some treats for my dog at home--a box of Lolli Pups. As the train rattled its way into the night, I became bored enough, and hungry enough, finally to open the box of Lolli Pups and try one. Suddenly a young, attractive and very pleasant woman came from somewhere across the aisle and sat down next to me. “Did you just eat one of those?” she asked, surprised.
And the two of us were carried into a fascinating conversation that cheered me up incredibly. This angel from somewhere across the aisle was the friend I needed. I never learned her address or even her name, but she made my whole future look bright. By the time she got off the train in Spokane, she herself had eaten a Lolli Pup. And I continued on, contented and smiling.
There are countless angels bringing us comfort and help in our lives. This is not news to you. Above are just a couple examples of the ones who have helped me.
