this happened 2 years ago in my kitchen while i was trying take a picture of a bird through my kitchen window.i was on a chair to reach the window as i was getting ready to take the picture,i leaned to far and lost my balance,i had the camera in my right hand and had not taken the picture yet, so the flash was ready to go.i felt my body losing balance and started to fall off the chair,as i was about to hit the floor, i saw a flash of light and my body seemed to be in slow motion and the flash of light was sooo bright it was a very calming feeling when i did hit the floor it seemed to me like a pillow was under my body as to soften the fall.i checked my camera and the flash was still set and no picture had been taken so i knew right then that my gurdian angel had be right by my side protecting me.i know we have gurdian angels around us every day.
