After mom and dad's 'strange encounter' with the music coming from the lift 2 weeks ago, Mom started again to wonder about 'Guardian Angels' (as in whether they really existed). She started doubting that she even had a guardian angel who was supposed to be looking out for her ever since she lost Lucas, as she felt that whoever/ wherever the 'guardian angel' was, he/ she wasn't looking out for her when she really needed him/ her most.

A week after the the strange encounter, she chanced upon this book at a bookshop titled 'An Angel on My Shoulder', which is a book written by some psychic and the book claimed to contain true life accounts from some people's encounter with their guardian angels. Curiosity made her buy the book and while it isn't one of the most interesting/ captivating books she's read, the book contained some interesting points... and one particular chapter which caught her attention was about how you will know if your guardian angel is around you.

Well according to that book, you should ask your guardian angel to let you know that he/ she is around you by giving you a sign. Apparently, some 'typical' angel signals are: a white feather, rainbows, repetitive numbers (like 11, 33, 44), music, smells, clouds, etc (and you need to have an open mind and be alert of the things around you on that day). Mom was cynical but she followed the instructions of the book since she doesn't have anything to lose. I think she did it more to prove her point that she does not have a guardian angel.

The end result?!! Here it is:

At the end of the day when mom was about to give up hope (she actually forgot about it totally as she had a busy day at work), this is what she saw while she was watering our withering (withered is more like it!!) plants outside... It's a pretty rainbow!! Pity that the photo doesn't do it much justice because it was really colourful and beautiful. It so happens that on that particular day, mom went home from work earlier than usual as she was feeling usually tired, cos on most days, she will only reach home around 7.30pm-8pm when the sky's already dark. Coincidence?? Sign from the guardian angel?!!

** Mom here: I must clarify that I have never been overly superstitious or been remotely interested in the 'supernatural', actually on the contrary, I have been rather cynical of such things/ occurences. I'm not sure if this is merely a coincidence (but honestly, I can't even recall the last time I saw a rainbow), so doesn't this incident make you wonder maybe, just maybe, there are really guardian angels out there?

Hi Huskee, what a pretty rainbow.

My mum believes in guardian angels because she has had some instances, in the past, when she's been very sad that things have happened, kinda like signs she said.
I am yet to see one but I'll keep an eye out just the same.

Take comfort where you find it. A heart warming moment can turn a bad day into a good one.

oh yes, I think there are such things you know. I really do.

We get lots of rainbows here in Scotland, so perhaps we have lots of guardian angels!!

We could see the rainbow in your photo, no worries.

Dear Huskee, Hershey and your Mom,
Yes, my mom believes in guarding angel and signs. Many many meaningful signs were being sent to her on the darkest times of her life. Like one day my mom drove home after a hectic, stressful day. Disappointed, frustrated, and mad at people at her work and while waiting at the traffic light her tired eyes caught a beautiful image: a pretty yellow flower growing out from a crack on the concrete curb, just like her guading angel comforting her and reminding her there still are good things in life.
Is my mom supertitious? I don't know but those positive signs did lift her spirit, for that, yes, I believe in angel and as long as we doing good things, there will be an angel at your side!
PS: Like your post always bring us joy and comfort!

Fenway said...

We are now on the lookout for signs!

We surely have a very active guardian angel around here. Mom has escaped lots of near disasters!

JB's Big World said...

My mom is not superstitious either, but thinks there could be guardian angels for all of us.

Ludo van puppy said...

I thinks that is proof!
My mum is a believer in Guardian Angels.
Thanks for sharing.

The OP Pack said...

That is a beautiful rainbow and yes, the humans are believers in guardian angels here too. Mom says if it gives woo comfort, then take it at face value and enjoy. Maybe Lucas is finding a way to reassure woo that all is well.

Take care, the OP Pack

Maggie and Mitch said...

Mom and dad believe that each one of us has a guardian angel! We think this is your mom's proof, Huskee! What a beautiful rainbow!

Love ya lots,
Maggie and Mitch

Lady Kaos said...

We believe in guardian angels in our house!!! Sometimes they don't do what they think they're supposed to do, but we think that sometimes things happen for a reason or the guardian angel just can't do what we think it should.
Mom hopes the package she sent to you gets there early now after reading this post!! She's acting all weird...weirder than normal that is!

Gus, Louie and Callie said...

Mom's brother passed away in a car accident in 1998 and she swears that he is her guardian angel. Always around when she is down..

The rainbow sure looks beautiful.
I'm sure that's a sign that your mom have a guardian angel

Joe Stains said...

I don't see any reason it can't be a sign, and a bootiful one at that!

Rambo said...

It's not a coincidence. That happens to G-Mom all the time.
It's a sign...for sure.


I don't think I have ever seen a rainbow and the Mommy doesn't remember the last time she saw one. There are signs everywhere if we just take the tine to really look at things.Mommy said she needs help from her guardian angel every day and she wouldn't know what to do without her.

I wish we could afford to come visiting. I bet we would have loads of fun playing & our Moms could talk & talk abiut deep things like angels among us.

{{{huggies}}}...Mona & thr Mommy too!!

duo_disaster said...

We believe in angels, and we think we saw Lucas too, because he set a huge rainbow in Singapore.

P/S: Yes, indeed from every corner of tiny SIN, you can see this rainbow as you lift up your head.

It was so beautiful and define.

Thank you Lucas for sharing not just with your M and everyone who cares for her too!

Be Blessed,
Rudolf & Goofy

Deetz said...

There are always signs if you open your eyes and heart and look for them. Just like when Gizmo passed away...member the butterfly?
My mum says her guardian angel likes to be comical and can be quite the jokster sometimes when it comes to her....hehe

Agatha and Archie said...

We think it is a lovely sign......from whomever it is from!!! Love A+A

Raising Addie said...

We believe that was a really good sign for your mom!

We do believe in angels looking out for us.

And it was fate that led your mom to the rainbow.

Everything happens for a reason.

Lots of Luv & Kisses

Abby said...

Hi, Huskee & Hershey...

I'd say it's a sign...Too much there for mere coincidence...

Thank You for sharin that with us...

Abby & her Mom xxxooo

PeeEss: Stop over & see me...I have a Contest going on...

Teddy said...

Wow, what an amazing message from your angel!! I'll have to read that book for sure! I really believe either Lucas, or your angel, has been communicating with you.


Charlie said...

You know, I always felt the same way... until I heard the author talk & thought "what harm can it do to try this"... Now I'm kind of a (embarassed) believer.
