and it totally made me cry. Pregnancy whacked hormones or not - I love it and had to share it here.
The child asked God, "They tell me you are sending me to earth tomorrow. But how am I going to live there being so small and helpless?"
"Your angel will be waiting for you and will take care of you."
The child further said, "Here in heaven I don't have to do anything but sing and smile to be happy.
God said, "Your angel will sing for you and will also smile for you. You will feel your angel's love and be very happy."
Again the child asked, "And how am I going to be able to understand when people talk to me if I don't know the language?"
God said, "Your angel will tell you the most beautiful and sweet words you will ever hear. And with much patience and care, your angel will teach you how to speak."
"And what am I going to do when I want to talk to you?"
God said, "Your angel will place your hands together and will teach you how to pray."
"Who will protect me?" asked the child.
God said, "Your angel will defend you even if it means risking her life."
"But I will always be sad because I will not see you anymore."
God said, Your angel will always talk to you about me and will teach you the way to come back to me."
At that moment there was much peace in heaven, and voices from Earth could be heard. The child hurriedly asked, "God, if I am to leave now, please tell me my angel's name."
God said, "You will simply call her.....Mama."
