We almost lost our 6 year old daughter this morning!  I am convinced she has a guardian angel.  We created a book nook for her with a light that you clamp onto the frame of the bed with a low watt bulb in it.  She loves to read and her bunkbed/booknook has become somewhat of a special place for her to go and spend alone time at.  Sometime last night or early this morning she woke up and couldn’t fall back asleep, so she turned on her light and removed it from the bed frame.  WHY?????  I have no idea but it was left laying on her mattress and she fell back asleep!!!!!!!!  About 6:00 a.m. she came into our bedroom and said she had a sore throat.  It was to our horror that we realized her sore throat was from the smoke billowing out of the mattress she had just woken up from.  I have no idea how or why she wasn’t overcome by smoke but she is thankfully fine and alive to drive me crazy for the rest of her life.  God willing!!! Somedays in our busy lives we forget how truly precious or kids are and we take for granted that they drive us nuts and make us crazy.  I know as I watched my daughters mattress go up in 5 foot flames in our driveway this morning I was was reminded how quickly life changes and that any moment could be our last.  So do me all a favor and kiss and hug your babies and tell them how very much they are loved!

    • Yes, we do have to do that.  No one knows Allah’s plan for us.  Glad to hear today was not her day.  Nor yours!

    • Praise the Lord she was safe.

      I agree through it all, we should kiss our children no matter what they put us through.

    • Its really amazing what goes through your mind during times like these.  I know there are those on this site, who have lost children, and I can’t even imagine going through that.  This was as close a call as I ever want to come.  I truly am a believer of the angels watching over us.

    • Thank god she is fine. I know you were scared. She has an angel watching over her.

      My son was in a car wreck a couple of years ago. He was driving to fast and lost control of the car when it hit some gravel on the side of the road. The car flipped three times and was flying so high that it bent back the top of a speed limit sign.  

      He had to be cut out of the car and there was no response from him at the scene. The doctor’s gave us grim news and he had a nurse in his room  24 hours a day. We could only see him 4 times a day for 30 minutes each time. Tubes everywhere.

      I was so scared and crying and begging God not to take my son.  We called my Grandfather who was a preacher for 55 years  and my Grandfather’s church did not have service that day but instead everybody prayed for my son. Joshua walked out of the hospital 3 days later.

      It is a miracle and everybody said it was a miracle!!!  I am  crying  just thinking about it. There is power in prayer and Josh had an angel looking over him.

      He is a God of second chances!!!

    • I’m very thankful that you‘re daughter is ok...my children must feel stifled at times because I’m always hugging and kissing on them, even when they don’t want me to..lol..which isn’t very often...And ‘I love You’ is a constant saying around them because although I know/knew my mum loved/loves me, she has a hard time saying the actual words and I remembered how that made me feel when I was growing up...I chose to do and be different than what I experienced when I had my own children...

    • The more we are aware of the precious life we are given, the more we live “awake” that it can change in a moment!  I am so happy for you and your family; that this experience didn’t part you.  I had one of these moments 2 months ago, when my 17 yr old daughter and black ice reminded our family that through no fault of our own, life can part you! You just never know!  And we take too much for granted!

      I will go kiss them all again today, and tell them that I am so bless to have them with me, no matter how long it is for, they are Gifts!  Thank you for sharing!
