Andrew Jackson of Cedartown believes he has a guardian angel.

Jackson stopped at the Red, White and Brew restaurant on Main Street for a milkshake. After enjoying his cool treat and artwork featured in the local business, he decided to return to his car.


He discovered someone had left $100 in the car door.

“I couldn’t believe my eyes,” he said. “I looked again and gently pulled it out and looked around.”

No one was near and he said he felt “strange or different” as if “an angel” was watching.

He has no idea who to thank but decided he wanted to let everyone know about his good news.

Jackson said he has never had such an experience. “Things like this don’t happen to me,” he said. “I am disabled and anyone can tell I am no longer a young man.”

He just wants to say thanks to his benefactor.

“God bless you!” he said to the person leaving the generous gift.

The money will help pay bills, according to Jackson.

He hopes that other people will consider doing random acts of kindness.

“I am from the Jacksons of Tennessee,” he said. “I believe one of our presidents was from those hills.”

Then, he smiled.

“No, I don’t believe it was a relative, but an angel,” he said. “Thank you, God! You sent one my way.”
