I Finally Made It

There I was in Wal-Mart dashing in between the aisles of shampoo and body wash, trying to avoid anyone I knew as I raced to “the aisle”.  Once I arrived, I made one quick glance to the left and then to the right, ensuring that the coast was clear.  With no one in sight, I…

Angel of Miracles

My Aunt Leah recently moved from North Carolina to Ohio and as she was “downsizing”, she came across this beautiful Willow Tree Angel that she completely forgot she owned.  The angel is holding a baby bird hatching out of an egg and the name of the angel is “Angel of Miracles”… coincidence?
