I felt like I was right there with you. The story kept my interest. It was both bold and gentle. This is very difficult to do and you handled it beautifully.

Here are a couple of quotes from The Angel Book--A Handbook for Aspiring Angels written by Karen Goldman:

"Angels don't fall from the sky; they emerge from within".
"Angels remind you that you are enough."
"When you are lost in life, an angel will get right inside your heart with you and show you the way home."

Looking forward to reading more of your angelic adventures.

I really enjoyed your story. It is so very, very difficult to write in the active voice and you have done so... so beautifully here. You have a flow to your writing that makes your reader want to read more.

The entire time I was reading your story I kept thinking about my Kindle and as much as I love it, you reminded me what it feels like to hold a book in my hands.

I see no grammar or spelling errors..well done. Well, if you'll excuse me, I need to go to the library now.

Write on.....

What a wonderful story about getting into the Christmas spirit by giving to others. You held my interest and your characters seemed alive. Your narrative flowed nicely.

A couple grammar notes: In the first paragraph you switched from third person to first person and then back to third person and in the sentence "the cookies smell good and their so festive" should/be "......they're so festive".

Enjoy your holidays..

Review of Black Friday  
Review by lbidler

I came to my computer tonight with a very heavy heart. The holidays are very painful and lonely for me and I decided to focus on something positive. Little did I know that your story was just what I needed.

I identified, and cried and laughed....mostly laughed. The realism, wit and humor hit home. You brought me on line in the freezing cold with you, and in the store fighting the mobs as I could almost feel myself being squashed along side you (or was that you pushing me?) I especially enjoyed the part when you were in the shoe department hiding your stash. I never would have thought to do that.

And coincidently, I worked in a department during the Cabbage Patch days and was on the other side of the story. You people were crazy!

Thank you so much for sharing this with me tonight and for your excellent writing and the ability to bring me to your one and only Black Friday experience.
