Always ready to help: Call her Mom

I like to remember special days of the year by giving you a column related to the event.

But sometimes I forget to write the column on time.

Because Mother’s Day is such a special event, I’m going to share this column with you early because you may also want to share it with family and friends. Here it is:

A baby 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 take care of you.”

The child further inquired, “But tell me, 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, and 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?”

God said, “Your angel will defend you even if it means risking its life.”

“But I will be sad because I will not see you anymore.”

God said, “Your angel will always talk to you about you about me and will teach you the way to come back to me, even though I will always be next to you.”

At that moment, there was much peace in heaven, but voices from Earth could be heard and the child hurriedly asked, “God, if I am to leave now, please tell me my angel’s name.”

“You will simply call her, Mom.”

Stay well, stay involved and stay tuned.
