↑That’s my daughter when she was about 3 years old. 🙂
AngelicView: I was just reading a very short story that I found particularly interesting, where a woman noticed her child was falling down the stairs and suddenly she was there to catch him. I mean, like, she was transported, inexplicably to the bottom of the staircase and caught her child. Here it is in her own words:
“To my horror I heard the squeaky baby gate….Luke had toddled to the top of the stairs! I ran out of the art room and looked over the balcony as Luke began falling head over heels down the stairs. I remember screaming….then the next thing I remember I am at the bottom of the stairs…I catch Luke out of mid-air at the bottom of the stairs…I have no idea how. I hold him close & sit on the bottom stair and cry, my whole body is drained of energy and it feels like I am moving in thick air, or heavy gravity…I am shaking out of control. I have replayed this thousands of times in my mind, there is no way I could have moved fast enough to run all the way down the hall to the top of the stairs & then get out in front of Luke in time to catch him. I was simply transported, somehow, out in front of him in time to catch him. Is there a name for this, besides miracle?”
Well, I have a little “miracle” to relate of my own. It may not seem like as big of a deal as the lady above, but it could have saved my child’s life.
It was Mother’s Day and I had to work (I worked 2nd shift). My ex-husband had our daughter with him at a Mother’s Day celebration at his mother’s house, and he said I could come if I wanted to.
Well, our marriage had just ended and he had had his new girlfriend there with him – there was no way on God’s Green Earth I was stepping foot over there. No way.
But about ten minutes before I needed to leave for work, I had a strong feeling that I needed to see my daughter – like I just missed her so much and I needed to go and see her before work.
I arrived to my ex-mother-in-law’s house and everybody was quite shocked to see me, and my ex-husband told me that our three-year-old was in the backyard. It was a really small backyard and I’m sure no one thought she had been in any danger wandering around there.
I went back there and found her swinging on a metal archway that overlooked the garden and just as I walked closer to her, that archway fell! She fell to the ground on her back and the top of the archway (which was heavy) was falling – heading directly for her throat! I caught it just inches from landing on her throat.
I know. I mean – I know. That there are Angels among us. ❤
