A friend of mine has said so, and I've been reading around online too. Pretty amazing.

My mother is an angel in Heaven. I named my bike after her: Angelily.

I once had a dog named Angel, does that count?


If not, then the only angel experiences I have had are with these beautiful Foo angels every day.

I have. I will give you the details if you PM me, unless BF's want details now. I will say this, it was like the aroma of the finest bouquet of roses.

One that allowed a car that is longer than most mid-sized suvs to spin out of control and do a 180 degree turn on a road that was 2 lanes and not much shoulder wide and covered in slush, snow and ice with cement walls on both sides of it. There's a definite possibility that some act of God may have been involved in allowing that car to do that at 35+ mph without killing or maiming its occupants, or dinging up the car much.

Yes. There are some things in life that really cannot be explained. There truly are.

I have read a bunch about "Road Angels" in crazyguyonabike forums and journals.

I was 30 miles away from my Ma when she passed. I was trying very hard to get to her in time. I had flown across the country and was driving from San Fransico to Ft. Bragg, CA via the 101 and Hwy 20 from Willits. We got to Willits and stopped momentarily for a pee break. It was then that a very noticable chill rippled through me. I called my brother at the hospital and he told me she had just passed. I believe that was her. The same thing occurred to my other brother who was also enroute from another direction.

Was this an angel? Ghost? Or Ma touching us one last time? Dunno.

Your mom 'touched' you when you were peeing?

Piss shivers are caused by angels?

I thought i did one night, but I woke up in the morning and had another look at her, and realized it was just the alcohol.

I dated a girl named Angel in Junior High, but never "experienced" her.

The person that helped me out of the ditch in the dead of winter some years ago, was an angel....I believe.
