always say thanks...less we forget

good evening sisters,

several of you are probably aware that i had to go to emergency room this past saturday night for what i found out to be an anxiey attack. i shared some of this experience in an earlier post. there was something that happened that night that i haven't shared, i will do so now. this may be rather long.

we have often heard that we all have our own angels here on earth. they always seem to show up just when we need them most. one of my angels showed up that night in the form of a paramedic. some may consider what he did as just being part of his job. i think what he did for me went way beyond his normal course of duties. i was in a very bad way when i arrived at the E.R. both physically and emotionally. and my DH was quite upset as well because of my condition. as soon as we got there my DH yelled out the window for some help. two paramedics were exititng the hosp. at the time. they walked over to see what the problem was. one of them just kind of stood by, but the other one immediately stepped in to help. first, he helped my husband get me out of the truck and stand up, i couldn't do this on my own. then while my DH held me, he went inside and got a wheelchair...i was also unable to walk. what he did next is what makes him my angel. my DH had to go park his truck, while he did this the paramedic, God bless him, wheeled me into the hospital to the triage nurse. he stressed to her that how desperately i need assistance. what makes him truly special is that he stayed with me offering me comfort and encouragement until my DH could return. ladies his just being there was a tremendous help to me. i don't think i could have beared to be alone, even for a few minutes.
i have no idea who this man was because i was in no condition to get his name at the time. i don't know which hospital he was from. i do know this though, he was my angel. i wrote the local newspaper to have a letter of thanks printed. hopefully he or someone who knows him will see it and he will know how much i appreciate his help.
less we forget...there but for the grace of God goes i.
ladies if you are ever presented with the opportunity to aid it a family member, a friend, or a stranger please do so for you may be their angel. we never know when God may be sending us to help someone or sending someone to help us.

thanks for listening.....jene

God always gives us what we need in times of difficulty. Sometimes it's easy to forget that or we just don't see what He has given us for help. Thanks for the story--it will remind me all day of how fortunate all of us are!
