A Generous Angel
A week ago a friend came over. She’s 65, recently divorced, caring for her elderly mother and out of work. I know she has very little in the way of savings yet she gave me an incredible gift. She gave me $1,000 toward the book I’m self-publishing shortly. She knew we didn’t have the funds and she thinks it’s a book the world needs to have.
My dear friend also gave me a copy of Dr Suess’s ‘Oh The Places You’ll Go’ – to encourage me to keep going and not give up.
Her generosity astounds me. Her friendship astounds me. The timing astounds me.
My husband and I had just decided that this dream was impossible, that we couldn’t keep going on such an expensive project while my husband is out of work. I was feeling hopeless and along she came, scattering her hope into our lives.
I am so grateful for her insane act of generosity, for giving when she has need of that money herself. People can be angels and I have an angel for a friend. Thanks to her we can start on the graphic design, exactly the place we are up to.
Who has been generous to you? Who has bought you hope? Who has stepped in at just the right time? Comment below, I would love to hear.
