~ A Warm Fuzzy Story
Have you ever had a dream? One you think will not happen? My dream was
heralded in on the wings of a series of miracles leaving me in complete awe.
I am the author of two books on Miracles and "Expect Miracles" is more than the title of my first book--it is how I live my life. Every year miracles
are presented to me as teaching tools to lift the hearts and spirits of
others. I share these experiences with my six year old free online Angels and Miracles 50,000 readers to teach them to become miracle magnets in their lives too.
My first miracle of 2002 involves total strangers across America united in an amazing series of acts of kindness.
I had breast cancer two years ago The day before my diagnosis my only and younger sister, Jo, was diagnosed with terminal cancer.
Jo died six weeks later. Life takes a drastic shift in perspective once you live through a year like this so I decided not to wait for my dream of a Shaded Silver Persian kitten. How this kitten materializes for me is a
I inquired at veterinary clinics, searched Oregon and Washington State
newspapers and local animal shelters. It is a shocking fact of shelter life
that 30% of all animals are purebreds and if I was patient a silver Persian would soon appear, but a Shaded Silver Persian kitten appeared impossible to find.
I had a pet reading for one of my pound purries who was not feeling well by Agnes Thomas an incredible animal communicator. Agnes said I would be receiving the reencarnation of my Shaded Silver Persian, Camalot, in January or February of 2002 and he would be a female kitten this time. I was so excited and continued my search in the newspapers etc.
In late November I did a computer search from my home in Oregon and found Linda LeColst in Boston, who has been breeding Shaded Silver Persians for 15 years. www.silverpersians.com
Without a doubt Linda has the prettiest kittens; but on the other side of the country -- and Linda posted in BIG LETTERS on her website that she does NOT ship her kittens alone in cargo!
I learned two things from Linda's website; first I could not afford the
beautiful purebreds and second it was impossible to have one delivered.
I sent Linda a brief E-mail telling her how beautiful her kittens were and
how I honored the fact that she did not disfigure her Persians by breeding their faces into handicaps. Her kittens' faces were absolutely Gerber baby-kitten purrfect. Linda signed up for my Angels and Miracles newsletters and my search continued.
On December 8th, the Blue Moon, a kitten was born to one of Linda's Persians, and it sustained a tail injury. It's tiny tail began to atrophy three days after birth.
Linda fretted daily about finding a loving home for her less than purrfect
On December 16th Linda drove two of her 8 week old kittens to the Greater Lynn Photographic Association camera club to be photographed. Miss Wings was only 8 days old at this time.
When the photographers produced tiny Angel wings, as props for the pictures, an idea began formulating with Linda, that her special kitten might be Mary Ellen's, coinciding with her pen name of "Angel Scribe."
Christmas arrived and my daughter, Ariel, gave me a beautiful red sweat shirt with a drawing of a sweet Persian kitten in a Christmas stocking. Ariel bought the sweat shirt from our favorite Morning Sun designer's outlet center in Fife, Washington.
The caption read, "Dear Santa, Please bring me a kitten."
I loved the sweatshirt, but it felt a bit like the child whose Grandparents go to Hawaii for vacation and then bring the child home a t-shirt that reads, "My Grandparents went to Hawaii and brought me back this dumb t-shirt."
I cried when I opened the gift. Its message spoke so clearly to my heart and how I felt about a kitten. I knew my family and friends had been searching for a Silver Persian...everyone was trying to make my dream come true and a sweat shirt was as close as we had come to a live kitten.
Then at the end of December Linda, in Boston, wrote me in Oregon, and offered the gift of the tailless kitten.
Linda had been consistently reading my free Internet "Angels and Miracles" newsletter so she knew the kitten would have a loving home. So at the end of December Linda emailed me asking if I would put the kitten on the Angels and Miracles prayer team for a good home, then she added, if I wanted it ....the kitten was mine. But, I would have to fly out and hand carry it home.
Wishing for a kitten and then one manifesting was a miracle. I cried reading her E-mail, then I phoned her. During our conversation the kitten's tail fell off ... a sign that the kitten somehow had found the purrrfect home.
I immediately named my miracle kitten "Miss Wings," because Linda posted a picture of the tailless kitten on the website, with a set of tiny angel wings on her back. Although the kitten has no tail, she has wings!
The name fit the kitten as Miss Wings is also the nickname Tess uses in the TV show "Touched by An Angel" when she lovingly calls Monica. Also, the kitten will be flying across America earning her wings. It was the purrfect name!
Finding a good home for her special kitten was a blessing for Linda -- the only problem remaining was how to transport the kitten to Oregon. I could not make the journey back East for several reasons, one being the cost.
I had a good idea to ask my Angels and Miracles newsletter readers if anyone could help transport this kitten from Boston to Oregon.
Only one person answered the request, Annette Rozane Kryger out of 50,000 readers.
Annette has been reading the Angels and Miracles newsletters since its
inception six years ago. She has not written once to me, she was content just reading and enjoying the inspirational newsletters.
When Annette read how the kitten needed help crossing America she
immediately forwarded the newsletter to her flight attendant sister with US AIRWAYS, Vivian Rozane in Maryland, and a follow up note to me, "Thank you for letting me be part of this wonderful miracle. It is my joy and pleasure to bring you, Vivian and Miss Wings together! I never wrote to you before because a person learns to be quiet to live in the world where most people do not recognize, acknowledge and savor the miracles around them.
Vivian promptly emailed me and offered to fly Miss Wings the entire way across America. She told me she loves cats, has three beautiful Himalayan Persians, and does animal rescue work in her area. Vivian also volunteered to dedicate her travel time and expenses for the journey.
In shock, I asked Vivian why she would do such a wonderful gesture for a complete stranger and she said, "I just melted when I saw Miss Wing's picture on the Internet and want to be part of her life if only for a few hours."
I was reading, "Pay It Forward" the night before and the book encourages others to Pay Acts of Kindness Forward, but I never expected to be on the receiving end of an act of kindness this huge! I now had the blessing of a free pure bred Silver Persian kitten and now a free delivery too.
strangers and a kitten connected in an ever growing miracle -- because of an ever increasing number of acts of kindness.
Then an email arrived from a newsletter reader I did not know. Debbie
wrote, "She is a true humanitarian, loving entity. Miss Wings is going to be vitally involved in the work you are doing." At that moment I knew this kitten would help to teach others that 30% of all homeless animals in the shelters are pure breds. A sad but true statistic...and one she could help teach the world. This kitten and I obviously have our work cut out for us.
Miss Wings story proves the existence of many good people from one end of the country to the other!
Miss Wings is a wonderful example of how we do not have to be purrfect to bring joy to others -- and that we have the power to bring strangers together with an act of kindness -- wrapped in a miracle.
It is my intent to share this miracle with the hopes that you too hold onto
I wore my Christmas Sweatshirt to the Airport, "Dear Santa, Please bring me a Kitten." My daughter Ariel made a huge sign that read, "ITS A GIRL" and a picture of Miss Wings with her Angel Wings in the middle of it, and the sign was covered with pink balloons. My best friend Rebekah-mae, the National Guardswoman stationed at the Eugene Airport escorted us and Betty Kaiser, journalist for the Cottage Grove Sentinel chauffeured us all to the airport.
Miss Wings and Vivian flew into the Eugene Airport, with the KVAL TV station camera rolling and her story airing on KPNW radio.
Vivian tilted the small blue pet travel case and Miss Wing's sparkly-big-blue eyes peered up lovingly. I melted. My heart grew two sizes in an instant. I lifted her gently from the travel case, with tears in my eyes, and noticed she was the size of my heart. Miss Wings captivated everyone in the airport and none of us even noticed the lack of a tail.
Miss Wings personality is sweet, gentle, kind, loving...she is pretty to look at and has the spirit to match. Imagine a fluffy tennis ball running across your floor or putting your hand into a bowl of dandelion fluff and feathers, that is Miss Wings.
Vivian and I became instant best friends--another blessing. It was not until an hour later that someone spilled the beans on Vivian. Her boyfriend, Jerry, gave her $400 to do something nice for herself. Instead she "decided to do something for someone else."
Vivian did not fly US Airways, she paid for a ticket on UNITED Airlines so the kitten would have a flight with less airtime. When United heard of the act of kindness/miracle kitten they waived the $75 pet travel fee and put "special Bag" on her travel case.
The last crew of their journey gave them a bottle of champagne and honored Vivian's kind gesture over the loud speaker at the end of her journey of being a Flight-nanny to Miss Wings. This miracle of ours was uplifting and touching everyone.
It is beyond a doubt that this kitten showing up is miraculous because the connections where made over the Christmas holidays and my second book is called, "A Christmas Filled With Miracles" and my life truly is....may your life also be filled with miracles and warm fuzzy kitten kisses.
Linda wanted to know if the angels worked their magic and created this entire Miss Wings miracle story. She asked the angels for a sign. Linda really got her sign from the angels. To read Linda's angel sign go to this page on her website. Linda's Angel Sign.
