Skipping Up a Beautiful Path

I was nine years old when I had my tonsils and adenoids removed in the doctor's office. I was then sent home. During the night I awoke and was lying in a warm pool. It was blood. I could not open eyes, but I heard them say, "She is going to die. She is hemorrhaging through her mouth and nose and we cannot pack both or she cannot breath." I don't know how much time went by, but I did have a beautiful experience. I was skipping up a beautiful path surrounded by flowers toward a big gate. I wanted to go in but a man's voice said, "Go back Mary Lou, go back. You are too young. If you come in you cannot go home." When I awoke everyone was crying.

During my childhood I had always thought it was a dream, but now I know it wasn't! I am curious now if children have difference experiences than adults.

I crashed my bicycle when several friends and I were playing follow the leader and we were jumping a manhole cover. I flipped over and landed on my head. I can remember leaving my body and seeing myself on the ground there was no pain but I felt panic because I didn't understand what was going on.

Wow! It's great to be alive!

Working as a technology director for a school district, I was running data cables into a conference room through the ceiling.The ceiling was a suspended ceiling with approximately 4 feet of room from ceiling to building roof. On a ladder, with my head (about eye level) inside a removed ceiling tile, I noticed a red clad electrical wire with a bare wire exposed, coming out of a conduit. Apparently it was hot since I was found on my back on the floor, with ceiling tile debris around me, and the fiberglass ladder twisted in the corner.
