Have you ever heard of orbs? You've probably seen them before. They are curious translucent-white circles that show up unexpectedly in your flash photos. Orbs may appear in different sizes and can be captured alone or in groups. Some people believe that orbs are more than just particles of dust or drops of moisture on a camera lens.
Some believe they are proof of guardian angels captured on film.
I took this photo of Charlie's room this week (for reasons that will soon be shared), and when I first glanced at it an hour ago, my jaw about dropped to the floor.
This was Daniel's room. This was Daniel's bed. That blue pillow was Daniel's pillow.
They say that when these "angel orbs" appear in a picture near a person, it is believed to be a sign of goodness, positive energy, and protection of angels.
And when orbs appear in a particular location, it's believed to be a sign that angels are hovering nearby and the location is particularly blessed.
Call me crazy, but I'm a believer in orbs...I always have been. And when I saw this picture today, I was in complete awe. As ludicrous as this sounds, it almost looks, to me, like there's a smiley face on that orb if you look really closely.
I believe Daniel's still with us. And now I see he is still in this house with us, too!
