It was Christmas Eve and tensions were still high in the house, and I was still not feeling that great and nor did I have a job.
I went shopping, I thought that if I went shopping and bought gifts for everyone and showed them that I really cared and loved them, then maybe we could all get through this period, especially me.
After shopping, I returned and then wrapped all the presents up and put them under the tree. The tree was in the hallway and it looked really great as this was an old house and it was a very large space with wooden floors and high ceilings.
As the day went by I decided to stay in this night, usually, I would be out with friends and hugging and kissing friends as the clock turned one minute after twelve. This year I didn’t feel in the mood so stayed upstairs for most of the night, only coming down for a drink or bite to eat.
It was morning now and I was half asleep still. I turned over in bed and something very strange happened. I could see through my bleary eyes a figure standing at the side of my bed. It was a dark shape and was right next to me. Then a voice said “Merry Xmas Ann.” It was a female voice. I didn’t recognise who it was. It wasn’t my mother, but another lady. It didn’t scare me, which is unusual for me, as I am afraid of most things. It was quite soothing and the message was a lovely message to give to me considering how I had been feeling.
I had now had two very spiritual experiences in a short space of time and both had happened when I was at the lowest point of my life.
As the years have gone by and I now look back I believe the woman was my own Guardian Angel talking to me.
