My life was saved

Location: Mt Angel Oregon USA

By: Amanda Theobald

I was five years old at the time. I have 3 older sisters and the oldest had just gotten her lisence and wanted to go to the mall to get some shoes. I got really excited because, even at a young age I loved to shop. We all went and got our shoes on and were ready to go when I started to feel sick. I remember being so mad because I really wanted to go but I couldn't possibly go if I was sick. So, I stayed home. About an hour later we got a call that said they got in a accident. The car fliped. If I had went I wouldn't be here today. I truley believe that an angel saved me that day.
