We drove home then finding it easy to find the freeway and talking about this strange happening all the way home. Amazingly not even thinking of our situation of fuel. We made it all the way home and in the front of our house my mom opened up the paper this woman had put into her hands. To her amazement it was 5 one hundred dollar bills! She just started crying. She said she could not take this and that in the light of day she would take this back to the woman. I agreed and felt so shamed that I was thinking this woman was going to try to hurt us. When we got inside the house everyone was in an uproar. There had been a terrible accident on the road we normally went home on. Many cars piled up and many fatalities. We were both shocked. I started crying then realizing that we would have been there at just that time had we not been approached by our "Angel". We looked at each other and begin to tell everyone about our experience.
The next morning as mom said, we headed out to find that woman’s home to return her "gift". We could not even find the exit this woman had directed us to. We searched for a couple of hours and still could find no inkling as to where we had been the very night before. We were very quiet on the ride home and emotions ran deep. I know that this was truly our "Guardian On The Road". I believe in angels, and someday I believe I will see her again.
