I learned from Jean Slatter (author of Hiring the Heavens) how easy it is to request angelic assistance for even the most mundane tasks. Since then I always "hire" Travel Angels to smooth the way from home to airport to baggage claim to train, bus, or taxi and then on to wherever I'm going. It works! It's amazing how many miraculous coincidences occur that can be attributed only to the work of the travel angels. Yesterday was no exception. Confused about time zones, I was an hour late checking in for my Southwest Airlines flight. This put me at the tail end of the B group for boarding, assuring that only middle seats would still be available. The angels were on duty because the one open middle seat near the front of the plane was between two very lovely ladies. With big smiles and offers to help me with my carryon luggage, they welcomed me to my place. Being in the middle didn't interrupt the stories they shared with winks and lots of laughter. Can you guess what the stories were about? That's right. Angels. As we exchanged email and phone numbers in hopes our paths might cross again, we each confessed that we didn't usually share our belief so unabashedly or speak so openly on such short acquaintance. Another miraculous coincidence since we all three admitted how relaxing it is to tell the truth. Especially to the angels among us everywhere.
