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?
