Angels Unawares

Be not forgetful to entertain strangers: for thereby some have entertained angels unawares. — Hebrews 13:2

Teen on Alaska Airlines flight helps blind and deaf passenger traveling alone

A flight attendant asked over the PA system in the plane if any passengers knew American Sign Language (ASL) to ring their call button.

Daly, who had been studying ASL for a year, rang her button.

“I sat with Tim a few times on the flight and toward the end for about 30 minutes,” Daly said, Alaska Airlines reported. “He just wanted to talk.”

“I went to [Cook] a total of three times, once to get him water, another to tell him the time, and the last hour of the flight to just talk to him,” Daly told FOX59.

“We talked about our family in Massachusetts and he asked me about my plans for my future,” she said.

Daly sign-spelled the words into his hand so he could understand.

    I’ve always loved the word “unawares” . . . makes one feel like Tom Stoppard.

    What a beautiful young lady! And what a blessing she was for him, and a balm for my skeptical heart. So nice to see someone doing good for another’s benefit. May she be rewarded by blessings of her own.

    It has taking me years (!) to grow into a kinder person. But this beautiful young lady was just born with kindness in her heart. If you ask me, she is the real angel…
