This morning, on the Today show, a doctor talked about her near-death experience and how she was told “it wasn’t her time” because her family would need her because her son was going to die. I don’t know who knows this, but the same thing happened to me in 2007, when I battled an e-coli infection. I died and was told to “Go back. It’s not your time.” I don’t think my experience was as detailed as hers because I wasn’t gone as long as she was. But the message was very similar.
Suddenly this morning, a light bulb went off in my head and I understood exactly why I was sent back. It wasn’t my time, but my kids would need me when their father died (which happened suddenly in March).
I need to reflect more on this. But here’s a link to the doctor’s book. Enjoy your day and take a few moments to stop and smell the roses. 🙂
