We are never alone

Location: Richmond Virginia USA

By: Bonnie Franklin

I was 37 years old. I had lost my mother almost 4 years before, and I was there in the room with her when she passed, along with my brother and two of my three sisters. I was the youngest-mother was 44 when I was born. Although I was absolutely sure she went to heaven and was watching over us, I was too afraid to "see her." My husband & 2 boys had moved away from the first place we had put roots down on our own, we hadn't sold that house, and were renting an apartment in a new city. I was desparately alone,nearing the point of a breakdown,sitting in my bed in the middle of the day, crying til i couldn't cry anymore. I felt a presence and looked up and saw four angels holding hands in a circle above me, and I was not afraid. One of them spoke to me and said that everything was going to be alright. I know now that God really does watch over us, and that we are never alone.
