So I'm getting ready to travel to Iraq for 8 days.

We unloaded 5066 pounds on American Airlines this morning of school suppies, soccer balls, care packages for soldiers, and love. Me and three other meatheads that I love.

Today I realize I don't have my reflux pills. Not sure what I will be eating in the next week, but it probably won't agree with my stomach.

I go to Target. They inform me there is an insurance issue because I live in California and I'm trying to get it filled in Texas. I tell the nice lady thanks for trying.

As I am headed out of the store, she comes and finds me and says the pharmacist has found a way to give me 5 pills if that will help. They had no idea what I was doing. Out of heaven, 5 pills showed up.

While I thought I was out of options and headed for a week of unpleasant sleep, I called a friend who is a pharmacist.

He just delivered me 5 more. At my house.

Bill has been a second father to Zac. His son John and Zac have been best friends since freshman year of high school. He hugged Zac and told him he loved him.

There are angels.

They come in all shapes and sizes.

Some are in red Target shirts.

Some come looking like your neighbors.


  1. and that wasn't the first time bill saved you. the night peter was killed and you immediately jumped on a plane to come to texas (leaving all your stuff back in california including your meds) i called bill. by the time i came back from dropping zac off at his mom's, bill had left you all new prescriptions on the table by the front door. what an angel! and then to top it off, our house was full of friends and neighbors. as you've heard me say, "the most beautiful experience you never want to have."

  2. You are an angel to others....and angels take good care of each other...they even take care of some of us who are just ordinary humans! They are God's hands and feet...isn't it wonderful how much He loves us!

  3. I will be praying for you.....be safe
