I was approximately 8 years old when I saw my angel. I remember going through a period of absolute fear of my mom dying. This particular night I lay wide awake in bed, crying, and imagining what would happen to me if my mom was gone. My mom had always told my to "think of good things and pray" when I have bad dreams or feel afraid. So that is what I did, I prayed for God to take away my fear. At that moment there appeared at the foot of my bed, a beautiful angel. I heard of voice in my head, rather than saw the angel speak, and it told me "Do not be afraid." The angel was "glowing" white and bright. I could not make out specific featured of any kind. I just remember seeing a figure kind of floating at the end of my bed. The moment the voice spoke, I was absolutely enveloped in a warm, comforting sense of peace. I immediately fell asleep!
