Angel in a cloud
Excerpted from Visiting My Hometown and My Past
Last night I woke up at 3 am and couldn’t sleep. I went out onto the porch and saw that it was cloudy and the moon was shining through the clouds in a weird way. There were a lot of moonbeams and strange colors in the sky. It was then that I realized that there was an opening in the clouds that made a design. The design was a perfect outline of an angel! I mean, it was perfect! I knew that that was a sign to me that I am not alone and that my HP was watching over me and not to be afraid. Angels mean a lot to me. You see, when my step-father was going through a really, really tough time (he died of lung cancer on New Year’s Eve), he and my mother woke up in the middle of the night and saw the outline of an angel in their bedroom (my stepfather asked my mother “do you see what I see???!!!” and she said “I SEE AN ANGEL!!!”. My stepfather said that an overwhelming sense of peace came over him and he knew that someone was there watching over him and that in the end everything would be alright. My mother felt that it was her dad sending them a sign. Well, I felt that this was my dad (stepfather) sending me a sign (and I cry as I write this because I miss him so much).
