Angel or a Cookie?

Was It A Cookie Or An Angle?

Each Wednesday afternoon I do a marketing call to one of our assisted living homes in nearby Whitwell, Tn. I normally return back to the facility from the assisted living home at the exact time.

On Wednesday September 27, 2017 when I left the assisted living place I had this “urge” for some candy or cookies so I decided to stop at a local store and satisfy my sweet tooth. As I entered the store I couldn’t find the sweets and for some reason wandered around the store for four or five minutes, looking for something sweet! After locating my cookies I proceeded to the check out and met a young lady who was the cashier, getting ready to go on break, so it detained me for another two or three minutes, I must confess I was a little frustrated! All total I was “detained” in the store for approximately ten minutes, – for a pack of cookies!

As I departed the store I came upon a terrible wreck that had just happened a few minutes earlier! As I looked at all the emergency vehicles coming to the scene, and observing all the mangled vehicles the thought entered my mind, “now you know why you were ten minutes detained!” Can I say with all certainty that this was the reason for my being detained those ten minutes, no, however I will always wonder whether it was cookies or an angel that altered my schedule a few minutes?
