Angels in Disguise


I have a book about modern-day miracles that I love, and the author cites all kinds of incredible stories in which people witness amazing things that happen, things that are nothing short of miraculous.

One of my favorite types of stories along this vein is about angels that come through. From what I’ve read in this book and others is that sometimes angels will materialize in human form and deliver aid when it’s needed. I LOVE that – don’t you? The comfort in knowing that that sort of help is available and has happened before just gives me hope.

While I have yet to meet an angel in human form that I’m consciously aware of, I have met people who act like angels. Their kindness and love in times of need is pure magic, and so wonderful that it restores my faith in humanity.

We were in Oregon last week, and went to dinner at this great place called Imbrie Hall. It’s an old restored farmhouse and associated buildings that they made into a restaurant/bar/destination, and the property is really unique and interesting. While we waited for our table, Ivan frolicked on the lawn with other kids, and I remember walking towards one of the houses and looking up at the roof.

I feel like I am in a dream state even remembering this now, because the next thing you know, people in front of me were looking behind me with shock on their faces, and then I heard 4 year old Ivan cry out and I turned around and Ryan was picking him up and there was blood on his head. Ryan had been right behind him, and he tripped and hit his head on this rope thing. I was still trying to figure out how badly hurt he was and how it all happened, but blood was literally spurting from his head and I needed to be calm and cool and get help. Ryan was pressing on the wound and took Ivan to the boys bathroom. It all happened so fast! I want in behind them and didn’t care that another dude was in there, I just saw Ryan was using a LOT of paper towels and there was a lot of blood…Ivan’s baby-fine hair was stuck to the side of his head. Luckily Ivan was okay, and not scared himself. He even told Ryan “I’m fine, Dad!” but STILL.

So I left the boy’s bathroom and went to find help. There were 3 waitresses together and I just told them my son fell, and there was a lot of blood, and we needed help. One asked if she should call an ambulance, and I remember saying my husband would think that would be over-reacting. Then another one took hold of the situation, asked me where Ivan was, and went to get stuff. She came and found us within two minutes, with a cloth that she just held steadily on his head. In what seemed like seconds, the blood had stopped and we ascertained that it was just a small little cut that happened to bleed a lot. She gave me another cloth with ice and some band-aids and rubbing alcohol, and I asked her if she had had EMT training because the way she reacted was so professional and just – together. And guess what? SHE HAD.

Becca’s kindness, calm authority and quick action was just what we needed in that situation, and to be honest, my feeling was that she was like an angel in disguise. I’ll never forget how much she helped us. I told the manager on duty that night and sent an email to the company too!

It’s amazing how many wonderful, beautiful people are here on the earth, and how much we can help each other. And then think, if people can be so good to one another, how incredible must it be when real angels come through and help us? From what I have noticed personally in my meditations and healing work, the more you intend to reach angels and invite them into your lives, the more they will come. And you’ll see signs everywhere, receive love and guidance just when you need it, and will act more angelic yourself.
