What began as quite humble beginnings, my grandfather’s name was Michael. When I was young, he told me a story about how my grandmother once gave him a watch – one that he claimed was the most beautiful and timeless watch that he had ever seen. When he was forced to go to war, he used this watch as a means to teleport him back to his wife whenever he felt scared, worried, or homesick.
In the heat of a firefight, my grandfather and his mates were forced to evacuate their position quickly, and in the midst of a timely escape, my grandfather forgot his watch. Thinking about the beauty of that watch that his beloved wife had given him, he defied his superiors and went back to retrieve his watch.
However, this is the part in the story where the watch becomes something more than just a watch or a gift. As my grandfather went back to retrieve his watch on his own, the remainder of his retreating mates perished in battle. My grandfather Michael said to me, “I was saved by an angel – all while I stared and looked into this beautiful watch.”
Hence, we are Michael Angels.
