Guardian Angel Protector
I think I was about six when this happened, but I cannot recall my exact age. I was living in Tennessee at the time in an older house. I was sleeping when I felt myself urinating in my bed, which is pretty common for young children. What was strange to me though was the fact that I FELT myself relieving my bladder, instead of simply waking up to my sheets being wet. Although this most likely has nothing to do with my experience, I still think it was weird.
Let me return to my story. I woke up immediately after wetting the bed. Usually after doing something like this, I would go into my parents' bedroom and wake them up to inform them of my accident. Then they would help me clean it up and get me settled back into a clean, dry bed. This night was different though. Something told me to get out of bed and strip my sheets off of my bed, put them in the laundry room, clean myself up, and put clean pajamas on. I then went back into my room and got my sleeping bag out of my closet. I unrolled it and snuggled down into it.
Before I even began to close my eyes, I noticed someone standing in my bedroom door, which I always left open. She was a beautiful lady with flowing black hair. She wore a white robe that went down to the floor. She stood there staring at me, but I do not recall any type of emotion in her face, but her face was clearly visible. In fact, her entire form was very clear to me, which is unusual since I am very seeing-impared and rely on glasses in order to see clearly!
As I lay in my sleeping bag looking at this lady for about 30 seconds, I finally realized that what I was seeing was not a figment of my imagination. SHE WAS REAL! At the time, things like ghosts scared the heck out of me! Yet, seeing this "ghost"-like figure before me brought absolutely NO fear; instead, it brought a feeling of relaxation and peace. I finally decided to speak to this beauty of a lady, so I simply whispered to her, "Hi." She then brought her left pointer finger up to her mouth and gave me the "Shhhhh" sign.
Just then, I was out like a light. The next morning, my mom found my sleeping on the floor and asked me why. I told her about my accident and she was delighted to discover that I had taken care of it all by myself. She even asked me what gave me the idea to get out my sleeping bag, since I have never slept in it after wetting the bed. I simply replied, "The lady told me to." This, of course, puzzled my mom and I explained the lady in my doorway to her. She smiled and told me that she must have been my guardian angel and was protecting me that night.
Since that night, I have been a strong believer in my guardian angel, who has protected me many times since then; and not just during small things like bed-wetting. I still think back on that night (I am now 19). Every time I do, I feel a sense of comfort and warmth... which is the only way I can put it into words.
