• Once upon a time there was a child ready to be born.
      So one day he asked God, "They tell me you are sending me to earth
      tomorrow, but how I am going to live there being so small and helpless?
      God replied, "Among the many angels, I chose one for you. She will be
      waiting for you and will take care of you."
      But the child wasn't sure he really wanted to go.
      "But tell me, here in Heaven, I don't do anything else but sing and
      that's enough for me to be happy." God smiled. "Your angel will sing for
      a! nd will also smile for you every day. And you will feel your angel's
      and be happy."
      "And how am I going to be able to understand when people talk to me,"
      child continued, "if I don't know the language that men talk?"
      God patted him on the head and said, "Your angel will tell you the
      beautiful and sweet words you will ever hear, and with much patience and
      care, your angel will teach you how to speak."
      The child was sad. "And what am I going to do when I want to talk to
      But God had an answer for that question too. "Your angel will place
      hands together and will teach you how to pray."
      The baby then turned! to God and asked, "I've heard that on earth
      are&nb sp; bad men, who will protect me?" "Your angel will defend you even if
      means risking its life."
      "But I will always be sad because I will not see you anymore," the
      continued warily.
      God smiled on the young one. "Your angel will always talk to you about
      and will teach you the way for you to come back to me, even though I
      always be next to you."
      At that moment there was much peace in Heaven, but voices from earth
      already be heard. The child knew he had to start on his journey very
      He asked God one more question, softly, "Oh God, if I am about to leave
      now, please tell me my angel's name."
      God touched the child on the shoulder just before he departed and
      answered, "Your angel's name is of no importance.
      You will simply call her "Mom".

      With lots of love and care *__*
