Once upon a time,
there was a child ready to be born...


So one day this 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?"


God Answered
 "Among the many angels,
I chose one just for you, and she will
take care of you."


The child replied
 "Here in heaven I don't do
anything but sing and smile.  That is all I need to 
be happy... will I be happy on earth?"


God Answered, "Your angel will sing for you,
and also smile for you everyday.
You will feel your angels love and be happy."


The Child continued...
"But how am I going 
to understand when people talk to me if 
I don't know the language that humans speak?"


 
God answered...
"Your angel will speak to you the 
most beautiful sweetest words you
will ever hear.  With much patience
and care your angel will teach you to speak."




The child continued...
"What am I going to do when I 
want to talk to you?"


God replied
"Your angel will place your hands
together and teach you how to pray."


Still concerned the child asked
"But I hear there are bad people
on earth who will protect me?"


God replied
"Your angel will defend you even if 
it means risking her life."


Anticipating the sadness of separation
the child said...
" But I will be sad because I will 
not see you anymore."



God reassured the child
"your angel will always talk to you about me,
and will teach you the way to come back to me,
even though I will always be right next to you."



At that moment there was much peace in heaven
but voices could be heard from earth...

The child asked in a hurry...
"Oh God! If I am about to leave now
Please tell me the name of my angel!"


God smiled...
and replied...
"Your angels name is of little importance,
you will simply call her...
Mommy."


Happy Mothers day to all of the mothers out there...
the ones who are celebrating with their children.
The ones who aren't but wish they could...
To the Mothers whose babies grew in their bellies...
and to the Mothers whose babies grew in their hearts...
To the Mothers who didn't always make the right choices...
and to the Mothers who hover...
To MY MOTHER..
who sacrificed so much more than I ever knew...
who made tough choices...
who loved me enough to give more than she had...
who loved me enough to say no...even when she really wanted to say yes.
Who is still doing things every single day to help me...
When I was little and people would ask me what I wanted to be when I grew up...I would always say a Mommy.
Looking back...yeah... I wanted to be a Mom..
but I think it had a little bit more to do with being like 
YOU.
Thank you Mom.
I LOVE YOU!
