When I was about 3 years old (as told by my Mother) I happened to cross
a very busy street in Houston, Texas to get to the little neighborhood
store across the street from our home for some candy. My Mother
saw me when I was in the middle of the street. She said she truly
thought I was going to be hit by oncoming traffic. She said that
I happened to fall and a vehicle passed right over me, not harming me at
all. I dont remember the incident, but I am amazed when I think
about a drawing I made when I was in grade school and could have chosen
anything to draw one day in art period. I drew an angel the likeness
of a little girl of about 3 years old!. Because my Mother did not
mention the traffic incident to me until I was in my mid 40s, I made no
conscious connection between the busy street incident and the drawing
When my son was in about the 7th grade we were moving from one apartment
to another apartment within about 3 miles of each other, making one last
trip at 1:00 a.m.
I had gotten only 30 minutes sleep in 48 hours due to having to work,
pack, and relocate all within a few days. My son, our dog, and I
were in the car and were only about 2 blocks from our final destination
when I fell asleep for only seconds while driving. I woke up,
screaming, with a tree within a foot of the front of my car! I learned
that a lone driver sharing the road with me at that time of night had passed
my vehicle and noticed that my vehicle had disappeared from his view in
his rearview mirror. Curious as to what had happened, he turned around
and discovered my vehicle in the middle of a heavily wooded medium which
divided the opposite lanes of travel. He notified law enforcement.
Several patrol cars arrived and quite a few wrecker trucks showed up as
My son, our dog, and I (and the car) suffered absolutely no harm whatsoever!
As the car was being backed out of the medium area, it was realized that
I did run over a narrow tree which gave-way completely because the ground
had been so wet from a previous rain; I missed a light post and also a
road sign. One of the Officers asked me where I went to Church!!!
Do guardian angels exist? Absolutely!!!!
