A baby asked God, 'They tell me you are sending me to earth tomorrow, buthow am I going to live there being so small and helpless?' God said, 'Yourangel 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 doanything but sing and smile to be happy.' God said, 'Your angel will singfor you and will also smile for you. And you will feel your angel's loveand be very happy.'
Again the child asked, 'And how am I going to be able to understand whenpeople talk to me if I don't know the language?' God said, 'Your angelwill tell you the most beautiful and sweet words you will ever hear, andwith 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 itmeans risking its life.''But I will always be sad because I will not see you anymore.' Godsaid, 'Your angel will always talk to you about Me and will teach youthe 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.'
