My Guardian Angels

Location: Lafayette IN USA

By: Angela Corcoran

A couple of weeks ago, my husband and I were traveling through town. We came to a stop at a stop light. The atmosphere became to still and quiet. I became very uneasy. Right then I heard a loud screeching noise a felt a huge impact. I remember my body and head slamming against glass and metal. For some reason I was not wearing my seatbelt this day (very unusual for me). All of a sudden a bright light with the smiling faces of my grandmother and great-grandmother wrapped around me like a blanket. I didn't feel any pain, scaredness, sadness. It felt very nice and warm. It all happened so fast. The next thing I remember is waking up to a very nice woman holding me and helping me. My husband was there and my head was bleeding badly. I was a mess. At the time it did not dawn on me that I had just been saved by my two guardian angels. The doctors and the rest of the people who witnessed the accident said I should not have survived the accident and that I should have been hurt way worse. I am suffering some health problems, but I know that my guardian angels gave me the gift of being here today. They saved my life. If there is one message I can send to you, it is that everyone has at least one guardian angel who is always there watching over them.

St. Therese of Lisieux
