MOTHER’S DAY THOUGHT: A Baby’s Conversation with God

A dear friend sent the note below to me. It is a beautiful little story of a conversation between God and an unborn child. It is a great tribute to Moms everywhere. I cannot find the name of the original author , but if anyone knows. please let me know so I can give due credit.

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 small 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.’”
