Mary’s Close Encounters

Mary is my sister’s sister-in-law. Does that make her my sister-in-law-in-law? It certainly makes her my friend.  Mary has had two very unusual things happen to her in the last few days. She can’t explain it and neither can I.

Hi, guys! I’m not sure quite how this works, but something happened to me this morning I wanted to share with all my buds. I recently had a bout in the hospital and am now home slowly but surely gaining my strength back … at a snail’s pace, but working on it.

To remind some of you, I live in the desert of Nevada outside of Carson City (northwestern part of state). This morning I took my trusty walker and oxygen for a walk, this is my second time out since coming home. I was shuffling along on the long leg back to home when I heard a soft “clop” sound behind me. I turned around and found I was being accompanied by a herd of “wild” free horses!

There were about 7 in the herd with a baby filly, and they had been behind and now beside me walking along at my pace … so close I could almost touch them. The one behind me was the “man” and he was watching me with the most gentle eyes and was no further than a foot away. I was so stunned to not only see them as I had no idea when they had joined me, but because they were actually walking with me at my pace, as if making sure I got home okay.

My little Yorkie, Sammy, was with me and did not blink an eye, as if it were the most natural thing in the world. Once I reached my area the little one kicked up its heels and started to play and they went on their way.

Nowhere but in Nevada, nowhere but in the desert are there such gentle free beings. Not getting gushy, guys and gals, but I truly felt I had been walking with God’s Angels and there is no other way to describe it. I wanted to share this with all those I care about and love to give you some of what I felt and still do.

After I walk in the mornings, my routine is to get a cup of coffee and go out on the deck, pull my walker up to the railing, put my feet on the bottom rail, and my cup and arms to rest on the top rail. I then face the sun and soak up some rays.

A couple of days after my walk with the horses, I was doing this with my eyes closed, and heard a kind of “fluttering” sound, sort of like a BIG bug … ugh … I opened my eyes and found myself staring into the face of a Hummingbird!!! If I had lifted my finger from my coffee cup I could have touched it! About 1-1/2″ from my face!!! And, yes, their wings do HUMMMMM! I could actually see them moving. It only lasted for a nano-second and then it flew away, and it may only have been attracted to the scent of my Coffee Mate (French vanilla), but one thing I DO know … I’ll continue walking.

So, that’s Mary’s two animal encounters. Were they just coincidence? Could there be a deeper meaning? Either way, they were certainly interesting encounters. Thanks for sharing, Mary.

Has anything like this ever happened to you? Leave a comment with your animal story.
