Experience description:  

I was carrying a resentment towards a family member who was judging me concerning my grief and my relationship with my mother.  I thought I would get it all out on paper and then I thought I would post it on Facebook (without names).  It was a bitter essay of vitriol and vile language.  After typing it, I hit enter and instead of the hate filled rant being posted, this was posted instead "Angels are here with us" - my awful essay was no where to be found.  As I looked at the sentence, I realized it was a link to another Facebook page. When I clicked the page, I discovered it was about a man who lost his mother and his experience with a visit from her.  It felt like I was being stopped from posting that and redirected by a message from my mom.  It was a 2 part gift.  1 - a message from my mom that she was near with angels and 2 - that awful manifestation of hatred was not posted.
