My Guardian Angel…



Some of you may remember that I fractured my hip in 2011. I had come home from a trip and was emptying my car when I fell over a rock and landed on the far side of my deck. I was situated where noone could see me and it was starting to get dark.

It must have been 45 minutes that I lay there, calling out for help at regular intervals. Finally I heard a small voice saying “is someone in need of help” and I yelled as loud as I could “Yes!” It was Felicia, the sweet lady in the picture. She had decided to walk down to the store instead of drive because it was such a nice night and that was very lucky for me.

She called 911 and they were there within minutes. One of the strange things was that the first thing I did when I got home was to call my two sons and let them know I was home safe and sound. It was a long trip and they were happy to hear from me. Imagine how they felt when the next call was from the police telling them I was on the way to the hospital.

But, back to Felicia.. We have remained friends and she visits off and on with her adorable baby girl.

 

 
Don’t you love her mode of travel?  Felicia says it’s much easier than carrying her little girl and she gets her exercise too. Words can’t express how thankful I was to see that lovely face as I lay there helpless. She truly is my guardian angel.

Aren't you the lucky one? One real live angel and one angel in training!
Excellent!

I am happy to meet Jenny (or Jessie?). You could have been in an even greater predicament without her.

We have been watching our collection of holiday films, and last night the film angel was Dudley (Cary Grant in The Bishop's Wife). It's great to know that there are also human angels and that one is named Jessie.

What a warm and friendly smile Jessie has. And that baby girl is precious, with her own sweet smile. Your angel is a beautiful one!

You were fortunate indeed. One of my risks living here is getting injured and not being able to get help. I did have an accident years which could have been a problems. I had a food go through the deck on my hay wagon. I fell backward off the wagon but my foot stayed trapped My head just touched the ground. I bobbed up and down on my one leg. It was winter and -25C outside. few vehicles pass my house and they would not see or hear me behind the house. I took a chance of turning over which allowed my foot to come free. I learned years latter at a routine xray to my ankle that I had broken it. I have reached an age when I should have someone phone me every day.
