What started out as a site to update on our daughter's cancer has thankfully grown into a site to update on our beautiful family of four. Enjoy our journey...

I know I have posted this before, and it doesn't seem like it was that long ago - but I ran across it again and I wanted to post it again! This is in honor of all the new moms I know out there...Kara, Gina, Jennifer, Heidi and the moms yet to be! When I posted this the first time, it touched me...but as more time passes - I get it a bit more each day.

A newborns conversation with God.

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 to understand."

"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."

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."

Brenda, being a mother of 2 very young kids and expecting a 3rd (all under the age of 3!), those words are so touching and true. Take care and God Bless.
