Angel Mechanic

Location: England

By: Christine Clarke

Some years ago I owned a sandwich van and I was taking it to work on the usual road just outside town. The early morning was very cold and icy. I was travelling on a narrow country lane which was thick with ice, and suddenly the trailer overturned and I knew for sure that I was not able to go to work that day. However after about 10 minutes a man stopped in a car, never spoke, but helped me to get the van on the road again by using tools that he had in his car. I said I was grateful and didn't know how to thank him, he never spoke and his eyes never met mine. He just did the job, got into the car again and drove off. As I looked up the winding icy lane lane there was no car in sight. This was surely my guardian angel for this day. Off I went to work my van and had a good day. Thank you angel.
