| | near death
My mother had a near death experience when I was born. She was actually pronounced dead in the hospital and said she was heading toward a very bright light and a voice told her she had to go back, there was much to be done yet. Then she woke up in the hospital. She said she loved me very much but the feeling was so incredible she never wanted to return. You would have to know my mother to know she would never make something like this up, as cliche as that may sound.
