Have you ever seen an angel?
There are these people
who stopped by Houston last year, the day before Hurricane Ike was to hit us,
and they stayed with us.
While our little place was getting battered by Hurricane force winds,
they slept soundly,
but the next day they really helped us out.
They helped out all our neighbors too,
and still had time for singing!
And if there was something you needed,
they already knew what it was!
And the thing was usually already in their hand,
or their pocket!
When it was time for them to go,
they knew what we wondered about them…
so with a wink and a smile, the tall blonde one just handed me this.
I’m pretty sure they started from Los Angeles…
but these days, you might run into them anywhere.
Maybe once angels traveled in disguise…
But now it is time…
for the world to feel their love.
The Traveling Neighborhood is a family near you…
These angels even have a website that you can visit.
Everyone has their part to play.
Am I an angel? No…
I just make angels their cuffs!
