The Presence of Angels
I saw my little Jamie boy
in the connection made in one moment
of heart felt giving.
With something so simple as a Christmas ornament and a Santa hat
A precious memory was made for life.
She gave me 3 kisses of gratitude and introduced me to her family and hugged me goodbye bestowing on me her few words of English “Thank You”, Nancy said, waving and holding our glance.
“Your welcome” I replied, the tears of love welling up in my eyes
And in that moment I realized I had once again been in the presence of angels
Feliz Navidad Nancy and Jaime where ever you are.
