This has to be just about the sweetest thing.

Yesterday, I was going through my mail & I came across an envelope from my Grandma.

This is what was inside:

I couldn't read it right away. I glanced at it, & tears welled up in my eyes. Hormones I guess. But I read it this morning before I left for work & it had to have been one of the sweetest things I had ever read.

A Newborn's Conversation With God: 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 & 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 & smile to be happy." God said, "Your angel will sing for you & will also smile for you. And you will feel your angel's love & be very happy." Again, the small 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 & sweet words you will ever hear & with much patience & 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 & 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 won't see you anymore." God said, "Your angel will always talk to you about Me & 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."

I hope this put a smile on your face or if you're like me, you have tears running down your face onto your keyboard.

I love you Grandma, for thinking of me & Claire when you sent this. She is a child of God & I am her angel. I love that.
