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.
Some may never see with earthly eyes these heavenly beings or know that they exist. Many are unaware of the numerous ways they have protected and guided us. We would like to share with you the stories of people who take pleasure in expressing how real angels are.
