A Tribute to Mothers.......

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 and
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 and smile to be happy.' God said,
'Your angel will sing for you and will also smile for you. And 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 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 it means risking its life.'

'But I will always be sad because I will not see you
anymore.' God said, 'Your angel will always talk to you about Me and
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...........

Dear Friend Betty......
A belated Mother’s Day greeting...... Our Mothering Sunday is in March and I forgot about it being this Sunday in other parts of the world until I received a Mother’s Day greeting from Christopher in Switzerland.

This time next week, where will we be..... God willing???? Love - Marion
