Once upon a time there was a child to be born.
The child asked God, “They tell me You are sending me to Earth tomorrow. How am I going to live there being so small and helpless?”
God replied, “Among the angels, I chose one just for you. 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 and be happy?”
God said, “Your angel will sing for you and will also smile for you every day. 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 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 teach you how to pray.”
“I’ve heard that on earth there are bad men. Who will protect me?”
God said, “Your angel will defend you even if it means risking her own life.”
The child said, “But I will always be sad because I cannot see You anymore.”
God said, “Your angel will talk to you about Me and will teach you the way to come back to Me. I will always be close to you wherever you are.”
Then at that moment, voices from Earth could be heard, and the child quickly asked, “God, if I am to leave now, please tell me the name of my angel?”
And God said, “Her name is not important. You will simply call her ‘Mother’.”
Psalm 27:10 When my father and my mother forsake me, then the Lord will take care of me.
