Wrong place at the right time

Location: N/A

By: Kelly

When I was young, my mother, two brothers and I would go to a beach in New Jersey for vacation once every year or so. One summer, my mom dropped her glasses in the ocean. They were quickly swept away and as much as we searched for them, they couldn't be found. A man approched us with a woman and he offered his glasses to my mother.

Without my mother's angel, we could have been hurt in a car crash of some sort.
