Hi,

This should be read whether you are busy or not. It will help put your
day in perspective. Have a blessed day!

Bare foot and dirty, the girl just sat and watched the people go by.
She never tried to speak, she never said a word. Many people passed,
but never did one person stop. Just so happens the next day I decided
to go
back to the park, curious if the little girl would still be there.
Right in the very
spot as she was yesterday, she sat perched on high,
with the saddest look in her eyes.

Today I was to make my own move and walked over to the little girl.
As we all know, a park full of strange people is not a place for young
children
to play alone. As I began walking towards her I could see the back of
the
little girl's dress indicated a deformity. I figured that was the
reason the
people just passed by and made no effort to help.

As I got closer, the little girl slightly lowered her eyes to avoid my
intent
stare. I could see the shape of her back more clearly. It was
grotesquely
shaped in a humped-over form. I smiled to let her know it was OK, I
was there to help, to talk. I sat down beside her and opened with a
simple
"Hello." The little girl acted shocked and stammered a "hi" after a
long stare
into my eyes. I smiled and she shyly smiled back.

We talked 'til darkness fell and the park was completely empty.
Everyone was gone and we at once were alone.
I asked the girl why she was so sad.
The little girl looked at me and with a sad face and said, "Because I'm

different." I immediately said, "That you are!" and smiled. The
little girl acted even sadder. She said, "I know."

"Little girl," I said, "you remind me of an angel, sweet and innocent."
She looked at me and smiled, slowly she stood to her feet, and said,
"Really?"

"Yes, ma'am, you are like a little guardian angel sent to watch over
all those people walking by." She nodded her head yes and smiled,
and with that she spread her wings and said, "I am.
I'm your guardian angel," with a twinkle in her eye.

I was speechless, sure I was seeing things. She said, "For once you
thought of someone other than yourself. My job here is done."
Immediately I stood to my feet and said,
"Wait, so why did no one stop to help an angel?"
She looked at me and smiled, "You're the only one who could see me,
and you believe it in your heart." And she was gone.

And with that my life was changed dramatically.

So, when you think you're all you have, remember, your angel is always
watching over you.

Pass this on to everyone that means anything at all to you. Make sure
you send it back to the person who sent it to you, to let them know
you're glad
they care about you. Like the story says-we all need someone. Every
one
of your friends is an angel in their own way.
 

Angels Watching over us....  

Angels come into all of our lives in a variety of ways. They have always been with us, in every time and culture. Angels appear when they're least expected. And they are just as unpredictable in what they say or do. Their closer presence is deeply encouraging-just the helping hand for which so many of us have been praying. They are with us whether we believe in them or not. The Angels are here.....
