An Angel

I stopped at Goodwill today on my way home from work. I found a book and a photo album to purchase. I was at the cashier and guess what I forgot my wallet at home. I was mortified. The cashier said she would take a check because it was 4.98 total, well guess what, the machine would not take my check. I was saddened but knew I had to leave the items and go, no other option. Well, God had other plans. A very nice man two people behind me offered to pay for my items. He wanted me to have the book I was purchasing. He said he had read it and it changed his life, his outlook on fiances. The book is "Rich Dad, Poor Dad". God had and angel behind me in line. I offered to take his name and address to send the money to him but he would not allow. I will pay it forward, at sometime in my life I will come across someone with whom I can return the favor.

I found out he is a minister from a church in the Seattle area who had come to Portland to drop his daughter off for spring break. He had decided to stop in a Goodwill just at the time when I needed an angel. Coincidence? I don't think so.

That's cool, Dot! I don't think anything in life is coincidental.
