Thirty years ago, my world almost fell apart.
I had surgery, was fired, and was informed by the IRS that my employer had not paid employment taxes.
After a few weeks, I saw a flyer about a Japanese festival. Although a physical and emotional wreck, I decided to go. There, I met a Japanese gentleman with whom I chatted for hours.
A few months later, I came home to find a bouquet of flowers and a letter at my door. It was from that same friend.
Inside the letter was a check for $10,000 to help me through my rough patch.
Sixteen years later, I met a family that had been evicted from their home and needed $5,000 to close the escrow on a new house. Without hesitation, I handed them a check for the full amount.
They call me their angel, but I remind them that I, too, once had an angel.
