The Angel on Earth

In heaven there was a child ready to be born. One day the child asked God, “They tell me you are going to send me to earth tomorrow but I am very scared, how am I going to live there being so small and helpless?”

God replied, “Among the many Angels we have, I have chosen one for you. She will be waiting for you and will take care of you when you arrive on earth.”

The child said, “Dear God, here in Heaven I don’t do anything else but sing and smile. That’s all I need to make me happy!”

God replied, “Your Angel will sing for you every day. And you will feel your Angel’s love and be happy.”

“But”, said the child, “how am I going to be able to understand when people talk to me, if I don’t know the language that humans speak?”

“Don’t worry”, God said, “your Angel with love you and patience will teach you how to speak.”

The child looked up at God saying, “And what am I going to do when I want to talk to you?”

God smiled at the child saying, “Your Angel will teach you how to pray.”

The child said, “I’ve heard on earth there are bad people. Who will protect me?”

God replied, “Your Angel will defend you, even if it means risking her life!”

The child looked sad, saying, “But I will always be sad because I will not see you anymore.”

God replied, “Your Angel will always talk to you about me, even though I will always be next to you.”

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

Just before leaving the child asked softly, “Oh God, if I am about to leave now please tell me my Angel’s name!”

God replied, Your Angel’s name is of no importance, you will simply call her Mother.

Happy Mother’s Day to all the Angels on earth!
