By: Emma

When I was about 2 my parents put me to sleep in my crib. I was usually a quiet baby who slept completely through the night. My parents loved that they didn't have to worry about me at night. One night I started crying and my parents went to my room surprised that I was crying. No matter what they did I continued to cry. Finally they gave up and put me in their bed where I fell asleep immediately. An hour later a tornado came through our town. The only damage done to our house was an old, dead tree was knocked over and fell onto our roof breaking through the ceiling directly over my crib. If I had been in the crib I would have definitely died under the weight of the ceiling. It was an Angel that woke me up and made me cry in order to get my parents attention to get me out of the crib. God was looking out for me that night.
