This was life or death for my daughter having a grand-mile seizure at 7 years old. This is what she saw and she doesn't lie either. :-) As soon as I pushed publish for this poem. My wife had me go outside where two hawks or falcons circled our house until my daughter came outside. They circled for about 10 minutes they left when we went in. This was a sign, if you are Native American you know what I mean. Now nests where we are just to let you know. :-D

An Angel Sighting

As my daughter lay shaking and convulsing on the floor from a seizure so bad that she never had before.

I almost vomit in fear and helplessness surrounds me and I drop to my knees and pray.

I said the strongest prayer I've ever said for my 7 year old daughter laying on the floor.

Not knowing weather she'd live or die I prayed.

God why take her life, take mine instead.

While I dialed 911 for the ambulance to arrive I prayed.

Take my life my all, her life has just begun.

After that prayer the ambulance arrived, they gave her shots and she's alive.

Days went by and I told her what I prayed.

She said "Okay daddy, I wasn't worried there was an angel above our heads.

Bright silver dust dropped from her hands and landed on me didn't you see?

As you prayed so strong there was an angel there all along".
