Where Innocence and Joy Reside

This Christmas/Holiday season, just as you most likely did I had plans to go visit family, in particular my daughter in Portland, OR. I was driving from Salt Lake City, UT the Friday night of Christmas. My best friend and buddy Java was riding with me in the back seat, both of us looking forward to spending time with Courtney (my daughter) and her dog Judah.
At the half-way point around midnight my car stopped running. Not only did my car stop running but I had never been on this route before. I wasn’t even sure what exit I had pulled off of when the car died. I had auto club service but my cell phone had one bar left and I wasn’t sure it would work. I did have a charger but it was a wall charger. I thought….I wish I had a phone that worked. That’s when the miracles began. Shortly after that thought I heard a woman’s voice call out to me, do you need a phone? I looked over and there was a woman in an SUV offering for me to use her phone and sit in her car to keep warm till help arrived. I found out she had just gotten off work, that she was a prison guard and that she was on her way home. I was able to contact the auto club and sit in her car till the police and tow truck showed up.
As soon as the tow truck driver secured my car on his truck, I asked if there was a hotel nearby. He said there were a couple, I asked do any allow dogs, he said he didn’t know. We drove a short distance, and sure enough there were a few hotels. I popped out of the truck and ran into the closest one. The first one had a room available at a reasonable price and they did allow dogs. YAY!
From that point on I experienced continuous displays of compassion, kindness, concern, advice, tenderness, strength, fortitude, ingenuity, generosity and much more. From the hotel manager allowing me to pay my bill by check, to the taxi cab driver who said that little money I had would be enough to take me where I needed to go, to friends that came to my aid….friends that I had really only known since May of this year. One friend assisted financially, another friend contacted anyone she knew to rally her dear friends to assist (all people I had met once or not at all). And all of this is taking place on Christmas Eve day, evening and Christmas itself. These dear spirits were dropping whatever they were doing to try to help another in distress.
I was a witness to one after another reach out to help in whatever way they could including a gentleman that lived in Idaho that offered to come and pick up my car and tow it back to where I live. Another friend offered to come pick Java and I up to bring us home, which she did on Monday that was a long, long drive for her on her last holiday day off. There was another friend offering their vehicle for me to use temporarily till I could make some other arrangements. Another friend that also offered me their vehicle after the first friend that had offered a vehicle needed it back due to car problems they were experiencing. There were even more instances but you get the idea…right. Everything & everyone was working in harmony…whatever was needed, poof….someone arrived to offer that. It was the epitome of heart centeredness and how we desire the world to be all the time. I’m here to till you it is like this….here and now…..and it’s only going to grow in this direction.
Despite the fact that my journey did not happen as I had planned……..there were so many unexpected surprises, gifts and love expressed…….I saw what the Christ was all about. I saw, felt and experienced that for myself.
I have so much love, appreciation, gratitude, respect and honor for every single person that came to my aid in some fashion or another. I didn’t really even need to ask….they were simply there. Spirit knew what I needed, sent the needed angels and provided it in abundance throughout the whole experience. I am humbled and awed by the whole experience. I was truly cared for, protected and loved.
Thank you to the Universe. Thank you to each dear heart for your assistance. I will never forget this experience. I pray to be alert and present when my turn comes to be there to assistant my fellow brother or sister.

  1. Aho, dear friend. We are connected by our humanity. You are a beautiful spirit and it was a magical journey. Love to you, and Java of course!


  2. Dawn, I absolutely believe that this coming together of all these angels was for all the angel work you’ve have so generously done in the past. You have been paying it forward for a long time. It was your turn. I am so grateful that what could have been a horrible situation turned into one blessing after another.
    You are an angel,
