Christmas Spirit

Yesterday I went to the store to look for little boots for the little ones flying in on Saturday from Laguna Beach,California. That's not the story.
While I was cruising down the wrong aisle for boots (dishes,candles,Christmas stuff) I heard someone humming, then I heard her singing ever so quietly and ever so beautifully. ..oh oh tidings of comfort and joy..comfort and joy...   I stopped and looked around holding a blue and white tea cup in my hand. I couldn't see anyone. Then it began again.....silent night...holy night....   Where was this sweet voice coming from...So I went around to the next lane only to see a tall older black woman dressed in a black Sunday coat, and black Sunday hat, and black Sunday shoes....she was leaving the aisle on the other end... and was gone. 
Okay, I said, no big deal. Then it started again.....Oh holy night....my heart just about melted from nostalgia ....I miss hearing Christmas music that used to be played everywhere when I was a little girl..this time of year.. I remember how excited I was that I knew the songs being played through the speakers at Sears. I suddenly felt warm and loved inside.  I went around again and this time she smiled before turning and leaving the aisle. I had to tell her how much her singing touched me.  So I hurried to turn into the next aisle...But she was gone...gone...nowhere in sight. 
 Yes,Virginia...there are angels.

  8. I love that word "nowhere". It can be read as that "nowhere" or it can be broken down and read "now here". See...she was "now here" then "nowhere". The same, yet not! That is the stuff that angels are made of Suz...all the magical things.
