Happy Mothers Day to all mothers everywhere, an opportune time for everyone to appreciate all the hard work and emotion that goes into parenthood, here is a favourite read for this special day.
Your angels name is Mom
The 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?" "Your angel will be waiting for you and will take care of you."
The child further enquired,"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 smile for you, and you will feel your angels 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?" "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 teach you how to pray."
"And 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 anymore." God said, "Your angel will talk to you about me, and teach you how to come back to me, eventhough 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 angels name." God replied, "You will simply call her Mom." Sniff, sniff, sniff.
