A Comforting Angel Brooch

Nervous about her mother’s bypass surgery, a heavenly angel brought comfort with a brooch she hadn’t seen in years.

Angel brooch

At 85, Mom was still very independent—until a blockage in her heart sent her to the hospital.

My siblings called me with the news: Mom needed bypass surgery. I hung up the phone and tried to quiet my racing mind.

I have to get to the hospital now, I thought. But the hospital was about 100 miles away, and it was too late to leave tonight. I decided to get all packed so I’d be ready to leave first thing in the morning. I lumbered up to the attic to grab my old suitcase, worrying as I walked. What if something happens to her before I get to the hospital? What if the operation doesn’t work?

I got the suitcase downstairs and brushed off the layers of dust. When I opened it up there was something bright and shiny at the bottom.

What in the world? I picked it up. It was a heart-shaped brooch—one I hadn’t seen for at least seven years.

“Well, I’ll be,” I said. I had chalked that brooch up to being lost forever. Finding it now, right before Mother’s heart surgery, seemed like a sign.

Only after the operation was over and the doctor assured us that Mom would be fine did I tell the family about the brooch I found in my suitcase. It was placed in my luggage by an angel.

From God’s heart to mine.
