Loving Mother Sends Heartbroken Daughter A Sweet Sign: “I Know I’ll See Her Again!”

'Woman's World' reader Annoula Wylderich was grieving the loss of her mother when she received a sign that gave her peace

For the last 20 years Woman’s World magazine has featured the weekly “My Guardian Angel” column, where real women share first-person accounts of their amazing encounters with Angels. Now, we are sharing those heartwarming stories of loving comfort, Heaven-sent helpers and miraculous rescues online with the mission of continuing to spread hope and light.

Woman’s World reader Annoula Wylderich was comforted when her beloved mother found a way to let her know she was at peace.

Annoula’s Guardian Angel story told in her own words:

Six months after my mother was diagnosed with stage IV colon cancer, it metastasized to her spine. She was paralyzed from the waist down and doctors told us that she had less than a couple of months to live.

Mom returned to her home, and my brother and I took shifts caring for her. It was difficult to watch her unable to pursue her normal, active life.

Our days consisted of having meals together, watching TV, talking and pampering my mom. Her favorite perfume was Jungle Gardenia, so I would spray the room and her bed covers when I would visit.

After six weeks, Mom began displaying signs of impending death. She wanted fewer visitors. She would “see” departed loved ones, and she began preparing us for her own departure.

I was inconsolable. I told her how much I loved her and appreciated all she had done for us and that I didn’t know how I would go on without her. We talked about the afterlife, and Mom promised me that she would find a way to let me know that she was okay and that something better awaits us. Soon after, Mom slipped into a coma and subsequently passed away.

For months, I went through the motions of life, feeling empty inside. I looked for signs from Mom, letting me know she was fine, but none came.

On the eve of her one-year death anniversary, Mom visited me in a dream, looking radiant. We were in the room where she had passed. She said, “Annoula, I remember this room and you and your brother crying when I left you. Do you remember my promise to you? I’m keeping it. I am fine, but it hurts me to see you grieving so long.” I replied, “Okay, but I need one more hug from you.” She hugged me tight and I woke up…and the bedroom was filled with the scent of gardenias. I knew then she was okay and I would see her again.

“Annoula’s touching account of her mother’s final days and the dream that followed captures the deep, eternal bond between mother and daughter,” says Sunny Dawn Johnson, a global authority on the angelic realm, with a portfolio of 22 books, including popular titles such as Invoking the Archangels, The Love Never Ends, and 365 Days of Angel Prayers. “The dream Annoula experienced a year after her mother’s death was a poignant fulfillment of her mother’s promise to reach out from the afterlife. Seeing her mother radiant and feeling her embrace were profound assurances that her mother’s spirit was at peace. The scent of gardenias in the room confirmed her mother’s presence and brought Annoula the peace she so deeply needed.” Read more of Sunny’s insightful stories here.
