Tid Bit Tuesday An Angels Message

I started a weekly post called Tid Bit Tuesday a while ago. I share a more intimate look at my life. If you would like to read previous Tid Bit Tuesday Posts you can click on the tab at the top of my blog.

I was a little apprehensive at first about how much to share on this topic. But here goes…Lets start way back…yes waaaay back, when I was 10. I lived in Turkey then and I had a wonderful Turkish language teacher named Mrs. Bolgar. I thought she was terrific. She not only taught me how to speak Turkish she also taught me how to make woven beaded necklaces.

It was close to Christmas time and we were planning a school Christmas party. We used to give gifts to our teacher in those days ( do kids still do that?). I had a bottle of bath salts tied with a bow on my night side table. I was so excited to give it to Mrs. Bolgar.  I awoke in the early hour of the morning calling out to my Mother, I was shaky and upset as I told her an angel spoke to me and said Mrs. Blogar had died. My Mother calmed me down and soon I got ready for school,convinced it was just a bad dream.

I went to school with my ribbon tied bath salts in hand and I was greeted by a substitute teacher. “Where is Mrs. Bolgar” I inquired, she asked us all to take our seats quietly. Soon the principal stood at the front of the class, with a blank look on his face, he looked at the back wall ( he made no attempt to make eye contact with any of us) and announced that Mrs. Bolgar had died in a car accident on her way to an early morning meeting at the school. He continued on by saying this lady ( I don’t recall her name) was going to be our teacher for the rest of the year. Then he just walked away, as if he had announced the menu for the cafeteria, or a school assembly. My heart sank and I cried, sobbed, huge tears, my breath catching in my chest with each cry. My friend hugged me and  tried to reassure me. In between sobs I said, “I knew she was with angels.”

This was not the only time something like this would happen to me, I have more to tell. Some about me , some about others. Have I lost you? To much info?

  1. Thank you for sharing. I have seen spirits before so you haven’t lost me 😀

  2. I think of that as night sight, or twilight sight… the times when one is open and receptive. That must have been quite traumatic for someone so young.

  3. that is surely an eye opening experience. There is angels in this world

  4. This gives me goosebumps. I hope it was somehow calming through all of the heartbreak to know that an angel had told you first.
    Hugs, GraceinAZ (Pat)

  5. I believe in angels. Loved ones and those who made an impact or touched our hearts in some way never truly leave us alone. I believe that with all my heart. Thanks for sharing. xo

  6. OMG, Katherine. I’m so glad to hear that this happens to other people. It has happened to me half a dozen times in my life. The first time, I was in 3rd grade. I woke up crying and told my parents that Grandpa visited me in my sleep and told me he was going to heaven. This was very unexpected as he was only 59. He asked me to take care of Grandma. My parents calmed my fears and told me Grandpa was fine. While we were talking, we got a call from the hospital that he had passed away during the night while he was making rounds with his patients. At that age, it scared me to death. Now, I’ve come to accept it and when it happens, I see it as a gift. Thanks so much for sharing!

  7. Hi, Katie
    I loved the Tidbit you shared this morning. Then again, I always do. You know I think this is the first time I read your “about me”. We’ve said many times that we were kindred spirits or so much alike..It wasn’t until just now, that I realized how much we are alike. Other than your extensive travel, your bio could have been mine, atleast about 85% of it… Isn’t that wonderful? By the way, I have an Angel collection, and I too am a child of Christ.
    Your Sister in Christ, Your friend on earth,

  8. Haven’t lost me. It’s so funny because I was thinking about sharing some stories of like kind on my blog and was unsure about it. Maybe you had a message for me today. I look forward to hearing more of your stories. Donna

  9. No…this was not too much info…but a touching story of the power and influence some teachers have in the lives of their students. How sad that others did not get to know her….never apologize for sharing your life, Katie…you never know who it might touch.

    I love this post! I have had similar experiences but the only people I talk about them with are my family and close friends, I love that you have shared this experience :)

  11. Not tmi, Katie. Just sad that you lost a wonderful teacher so young. This “knowing” singled you out and sounds like a gift.

  12. That’s fascinating. You haven’t lost me, I want to hear more!

  13. Beautiful. Thank you for sharing.

  14. Definitely not TMI….such a sad story, but a remarkable instance of how we are so receptive to heavenly influences and messages when we are young, but we grow colder to those things sometimes as we (we think) mature. It sounds as if God gave you a real gift – it comforted you, I’m sure, to know that an angel told you — so you knew your teacher was in His care, and one day you would see her again.
    Your sister in Christ,

  15. You haven’t lost me, I hope you tell us more. It’s a wonderful peek into what makes you, you. :)

  16. Hello Katherine, Thanks for sharing your beautiful story. Too bad your school and the adults there at the time were not more sensitive to the needs of the children in her classroom. Joyous Wishes, Linda

  17. No not too much information in the least. Sharing life stories like this remind all of us there is more to life than the tangible, now.
    Have a great day.
    Always, Queenie

  18. Too much info? Never! I loved this. Thanks so much for sharing it. Blessings to you!

    Wow-That must have been so traumatic for you at that age! I think it’s very interesting to hear personal tidbits like this! Please keep sharing!

    Wow! How did you handle that at 10? My sister has some intuition on things like that. Looking forward to hearing more from you. ((HUGS))
