Concluding Angel Short Story

I beckon my guardian angel Alexandria’s guidance for everything in my life…in this instance she did not fail me…

April 10, 2010…Driving home from work, after praying the rosary, I was impacted by a dreadful screeching sound. I saw my car rising into air while simultaneously hearing a sweet voice saying, “Patricia, let’s just do this together.”  I echoed a mental “yes” as the car spun once, twice, and at a third turn I could no longer hold the steering wheel…forging into this space, the car traveled on the roof’s edge, metal scraping down the highway for what seemed to be eternal, gravity finally flipping the car onto the pavement, wheels still spinning, I found myself hanging upside down in this pure grace moment of silence…musing…I am still alive!  Alexandria, you did this for me?

A young man pulling me out of the wreck had run a stop sign, repeating, “I’m so sorry, please forgive me..I nodded yes.  The next voice, a paramedic, said, “young lady, you are very lucky today.”  Smiling back at him, “no luck, sir, it was my guardian angel Alexandria who saved me…she always places God before my eyes and reach!

Thank You, God!  Angels do protect us from harm and evil.
