When i was 6 years old.

Location: N/A

By: Dankly

I'll try to make this to the point. I have no reason to lie or exaggerate any of this. It was about 5:30-6:00 AM in Jacksonville FL. I was in bed asleep. Suddenly i felt 110% awake and felt very excited. I roll over in bed, my view now right into the living room (doop was open). I was an angel. She had long, curly, shining hair that seemed to flutter. She stood tall and had wings to her calves. She wore all white, the only color was her red cheeks and orange hair. It was dark still with the sun just starting to wake up. She stood there and the room was well lit. She had a "rainbow colored" light coming from her, not a window or lamp. I looked for a moment, scared, as a 6 year old boy. She was facing the east as her left shoulder was facing me, she seemed to turn her torso towards me and just stared back. I felt very scared, i put my head under the covers, prayed to God that it wasn't an evil being, and hid for about a minute. Then all fear disappeared and she was gone at the same time the sun arose. I have heard who i saw was the guardian angel of children. I have had more life or death close calls than anyone should statistically survive through. I just want to know I'm not crazy and someone else out there has a similar story.
