Angels Among Us

February 7, 2008

So, yesterday Cooley canceled evening classes due to "unsafe driving conditions" and let all us staff people go home an hour early. At first I was jumping for joy (I LOVE to leave early!) and then I looked outside....and was scared for my life...literally. But I decided to suck it up and brave the wintery roads. My usual commute of 20 minutes quickly turned in to a hour. I decided to try a different way home (big mistake of course). While stuck behind two big school buses I started to get cranky and frustrated....I was losing my patience and fast (anyone who knows me knows that when this happens, I am not fun to be around). When it was finally my turn to go up a small hill, to my horror my rear tires were spinning but I was going nowhere. Horrible sounds started to come from my poor Jeep. And cars started to honk at me. I was completely terrified. Us California girls do not know how to drive in the snow, and this had never happened to me before! Panic quickly set in and I could feel the tears welling up in my eyes...I had absolutely no idea what to do. Just when I was about to loose it, like out of a dream, about six teenaged kids come running to my rescue. No questions asked, they all got behind my Jeep and started pushing. After about 20 seconds or so (it seemed like a lifetime to me!) I was free! And then the tears really started coming down. What an awful person I was being just moments before. Complaining about my situation and getting all cranky and worked up. And then these six kids come over while it is snowing like crazy to help out the tearful California girl...without hesitation. I don't know what I would have done without that pack of teenagers. I want to find out who they were and give them all a hug...and maybe some homemade cookies....and cupcakes. So for the rest of my trip home (still mildly hysterical) I just prayed over and over "please God, keep me safe....and thank you for sending me my teenage rescue team!" I couldn't shake the incident all night....I do know that God it watching and sends us angels....just when we need them the most...
