Another Reflection of Hope

Later that night, he phoned me. He asked if he could meet me. I arranged to meet him at the coffee shop again. Wow, what a difference! He was clean, had a smile on his face, shoulders back facing the world. He gave me a hug and called me angel. I said, "You know my name." He said, "No, from now on you will be known as Angel. I believe God sent you to me. He sends his angels to care for people". Stephen said he would buy the coffees but the money I had left for him will be repaid a million times over.
Do you know the thing I noticed the most in that coffee shop? People were not staring at us like the last time because as far as they were concerned, Stephen looked like evryone else. I was happy to see him no matter what he looked like. He is still searching for work but has now registered and will get some money. We have a regular date for coffee.
