Thanks to layaway angel

Recently, I was walking into the Kmart on East Sprague to cancel my layaway order. My husband and I could no longer make the payments, and we were hoping to use the $15 I’d receive back to buy a gift each for my two daughters. Two hours before, a “layaway angel” was there wanting to pay off a layaway with nothing but toys. The three ladies at the counter said she came in like Santa, spending over $100 on my layaway. Then, poof, she was gone like that.

Standing there in complete shock with chills down my body, the first thing I said is that I need to thank her somehow. Because of her, our nieces, nephews and daughters will have a great Christmas. God bless you. Thank you so much.
