Guardian Angel

by Deborah Morrow

Many years ago, I was driving home from a friend's house about 12:30 in the morning. I was all alone and very few cars were on the freeway. I started to doze. I tried rolling down the windows to stay awake but I closed my eyes for only a few seconds when I opened them I hit the guardrail in the center divider. I stopped my car but couldn't get out of the door. Suddenly it opened and I got out. When I did I saw an MGB sports car which is very small and low to the ground swerve to miss debris on the road from my car. It swerved into the center median coming directly at me. I fell into a small ditch by the median and I heard a voice--it said "don't get up until you see the light." Well, I stayed down until I saw a light. Then I got up. There was a policeman coming up behind me and asked if I was alright. I told him I was a little shaken up but I was fine. He was concerned because he saw the MGB drive right over me. He was sure I was dead. I believe that was indeed my guardian angel looking over me. I am living proof angels exist.
