Here’s a little story for Mothers Day …
One day up in heaven, a child said to God, “They tell me You are sending me to earth tomorrow. But how am I going to make it down there when I’m so small and helpless?”
 
God gently replied, “Your angel will be there waiting for you and will take care of you.” The child persisted: “Who will protect me?”
God said, “Your angel will defend you even if it means risking its own life.”
The child inquired further, “But how will I be able to understand when people talk to me if I don’t understand 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.”
“But I will be sad that I can’t see You anymore.”
“Your angel will talk to you about Me and will teach you the way to come back to Me, even though I will be with you even when you cannot see Me.”
At that moment there was much peace in heaven, but voices from earth could already be heard. The child hurriedly asked, “God, if I am to leave now, please tell me my angel’s name.”
“You will simply call her… Mom.”
 
Stop and think for a moment. Isn’t it great that God designed the world this way? That when we enter it we have a welcoming committee called “a family.” Now I don’t know what your parents were like, but I know that God’s original design was that we would be surrounded by love and care and protection from the moment we entered this world.
Moms, we love you!
