Mama Told Me I Had An Angel

This true story happened when I was 9 or 10. I remember it very clearly.
          I was very sick with Pneumonia, and i was getting ready for bed. My mom came and told me that if I needed her at all while she was sleeping, to knock three times real hard on the wall (We lived in a trailer) and the dogs would bark and wake her up.
          Now let me explain these two dogs. One is a chihuahua/yorkie mix and the other is a toy poodle, who sleep at the end of my moms bed. They both can hear a pin drop from a mile a way, and at any unknown sound, bark with their annoying high-pitched barks until they find out the cause of the sound.
          Anyway, when my mom told me to knock on the wall, I just nodded my head. Now let me tell you about me. I'm usually pretty shy and dont like to get in other peoples way. So, knowing my mom had to get up early in the morning, I knew that I wouldn't be able to wake her up no matter what.
          I lay in bed and fell asleep. At around 2 in the morning, I woke up feeling horrible. I was coughing and knew I had a fever. I couldnt get myself to knock on the wall. I grabbed a pillow and a blanket, and started walking to my moms room, not knowing what else to do. I layed down on the floor at the end of my moms bed, out of sight. I would feel embarrassed if she woke up and saw me. 
          I started getting worse as the night went on. I was feeling miserable. It was getting harder and harder to try and muffle the sound of my coughs, not wanting to wake my mom. Eventually I broke down and started crying and silently praying to god to please help me. I wasnt sure of what else to say. So I quietly cried harder in the dead silence.
         A little while later, I heard my mom starting to wake up. Panicking, I slid myself under her bed, not wanting to be discovered. My mom walked out of her room and into mine by the sound of her footsteps. I heard her call my name. 
         I got up weakly and walked to her. She immediately pressed her hand to my forehead and put a thermometer in my mouth. The first thing she said was, "Thank goodness you knocked!" She told me my temperature was around 103/104.
         "But mama, I didnt knock. I was hiding under your bed, unsure of what to do. I didnt want to wake you up.", I said. My mom was quiet for alittle bit. Then she said, "Baby, your guardian angel woke me up. I heard three loud knocks. The dogs didnt even go crazy. You didn't hear it? It was very loud."
         It took me awhile to process this. I shook my head no. I didnt hear anything. "God answered my prayer then.", I told her. That was when I realized God really does listen, and love me. Even today my eyes tear up every now and then when I remember that night.
