I recently got this email --see below--(I've seen it before) but I think there's been some kind of mistake. If the mommy is supposed to be the angel, my kids have been placed wrongly...I usually feel more like a mean ogre than an angel. :(
Why does Mother's Day make me feel so inadequate? I know I am not those things that Hallmark says I am. And I'm quite sure my kids know it too. I only feel like a good mommy in the morning before my kids wake up-I have such good intentions then.
Well, it's off to wake up the kids and turn into that other person...the cranky one with the scowl on my face. :( :( :(
Next time I'm going to find something happy to write about...
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?'
God said, 'Your angel will be waiting for you and will 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 always be sad because I will not see you
God said, '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 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.'
God said, 'You will simply call her, 'Mom.'
