I believe - Angel Stories

By: Samantha Wynkoop

Location: lancaster Ohio USA

My parents and I never had what you would call a loving relationship. The older I got the more my mom singled me out from my brother and sisters; yelling, constantly berating me, and eventually it moved on to the point where she would hit me. I could never understand why she hated me, and she made no secret of it...in fact she told me often she never wanted me. Two weeks after I graduated from high school it got to the point where my mother beat me up so badly and got so out of control that I left home. I had no money, car, job, clothes. And she told me if I ever told anyone how i got battered she'd make me sorry. It's so hard for anyone to imagine what it's like to have nothing...no self-esteem, and no hope. I got a job that paid minimum wage and moved in with my boyfriends family. They're great people, but still became leery around me, like they no longer knew how to act when i was around. I became really depressed, and started thinking....nobody wants me....I'!
m taking up space and this is so hard to get up everyday and try to keep going.
I went to work one day, the store I worked in was small, only one person was scheduled per shift. So I was alone and thinking some very scary thoughts about ending my life...This little old lady walked in and looked around, but I could see she was staring at me, it was a bit un-nerving. I was standing there staring off into space and thinking depressing thoughts, not really paying too much attention to her when she walked right up and took my hand. I was too surprised to jerk my hand away...i'd reached the point where i didn't want anyone to touch me. She looked me right in the eye with the most direct gaze anyone has ever leveled at me and said 'your a good girl and you are loved, it's going to be okay'. I broke down and cried.
When I got myself under control again the old lady was gone...the thing is there was a little bell above the door so whenever anyone went in or out it rang really loudly. I never saw, or heard her leave....all I know is that this woman saved my life. I am completly convinced that she was my guardian angel.
