The Busy Angel
On a long airplane trip made even longer by weather delays, I took my window seat & settled in, hoping I’d be able to stretch into the seat beside me and wondering if it was taken.
I gave a little sigh as woman slid into to the seat beside me. I hoped she wouldn’t be talkative. I felt an odd pressure in the space between us and glanced over to see what the cause might be. I noticed an angel facing the woman’s torso & flapping his wings and arms about in a frenzied fashion.
“Good grief!” I blurted out without thinking, “Is there any reason you’d have an angel with you – right there?” as I pointed to the spot.
She gasped and looked stunned and relieved at the same time.” My goodness yes” she replied. I am a very recent kidney donor –less than a week ago. I’m travelling against doctor’s orders to a family funeral across country.
The last hour or so has been quite uncomfortable. I was beginning to wonder if I would be able to make it.
Where you are pointing is exactly the incision line. You had no way of knowing. Thank you so much”.
