Everyday Angels

Three angels help a weary Charlotte traveler get home safely

I had been out of town on a long trip. My husband drove my car to the airport, left it for me in long-term parking and taped the key to the interior of the wheel well.

When I got back, I found the car, but could not find the key. I saw the tape, but no key.

The first angel I encountered was the airport employee who circles the lots looking for people in distress.

The second angel revealed itself to me when the employee found my lost key tucked inside my windshield wiper! Some honest soul found my key on the ground and instead of stealing my car, left me the key to find. Two angels helped me that day!

The third angel was my husband who took the car to the airport for me in the first place.
