I will never forget when I was in my teens I decided to make some soup for myself on the stove. I grabbed a clear glass pan, filled it with water and turned the gas pilot on and put the lid on top for the water to boil. My father was sitting at the kitchen table reading about 5 feet away and my mother was in the living room. As the water started to boil in the pan, my phone rang in my room, and as any teenage would do when the phone rang, I ran to answer it. I picked up the phone and there was no one there. I started back to the kitchen. As I was just about to turn the corner, the glass pot exploded, throwing boiling, hot sharp glass threw the air of the kitchen. My father was facing away from the stove and was unharm. If it wasn't for an angel that called me I would of been right in front of the stove when it exploded. That truley made me believe that I had a guardian angel.
