Guardians Or The Strength Within

But somehow, we do...
A personal experience of mine was at my dear uncle's funeral. He had been sick for months, and one cool morning I got the phone call that I equally dreaded and expected - that he had passed away.
My dad was initially asked to read the eulogy, but he could not cope - so he asked me to write and read the eulogy - I would do anything for my parents, so I said yes... and started to write - that part was surprisingly easy and quite enjoyable as I was able to relive some very happy memories.
Then the day of the funeral came, before I got into the church, I collapsed in tears - literally collapsed, another aunt and uncle helped me up and helped into the church - where I sat trembling, stomach churning, sweating - a rather awful mix of grief and nervousness. Then I was asked to the pulpit to read the eulogy.
I got there, then I felt a familiar warm hand on my shoulder and a whisper in my mind, saying something my uncle said to me
"You'll be right"
and I was, I spoke with not so much a quiver in my voice. I was calm.
Now, here is my point, was that my uncle's spirit standing by me? was it my mind triggering comforting memories to help me through (the 'human spirit')? or could it have been both?
Also, does it really matter what it was? Whatever happened, it worked and I was able to cope and proceed in honouring my dear uncle.
i'd be interested in reading others' thoughts and experiences.

Both of your explanations make sense to me - it is amazing what we can achieve when overwhelmed... or when we have no other choice.
