I Am Your Guardian Angel

Grief ~ Sorrow ~ Pain ~ Suffering ~ Loss ~ Mourning ~ Death ~ Crying
These are just a few words that describe the intense sadness we experience when our world is turned upside down by death.  It is a moment that defines who we are and a moment that is etched forever in our minds.

I came across this story recently and it really touched me.  I have thought of my dear sweet Bethany as my very own guardian angel for a long time.  Have you considered this for yourself?  Perhaps this story will give you a brief glimpse into the possibility of your dear one being your guardian angel.

The Little Girl in the Park
There was this lil’ girl one day sitting in the park. Everyone passed and never stopped to see why she looked so sad. Dressed in a worn pink dress, 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.

It just so happens that the next day I decided to go back to the park, in curiosity, to see if the lil’ 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 walk over to the lil’ girl. For as we all know a park full of strange people is not a good place for young children to play alone.

As I got closer I could see the back of the lil’ girls dress was obscenely shaped. I figured that that was a reason the people just passed by and made no effort to help. Having a deformity is a low blow in our society and, “so help you” if you make a step toward assisting someone who is different.

As I was coming closer the lil’ girl slightly lowered her eyes to avoid my intent stare.  As I approached her, I could see the obscene 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 lil’ girl acted shocked and stammered a “Hi” after a long stare into my eyes. I smiled and she shyly smiled back.

We talked till 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 lil’ girl looked at me and with a sad face said, “Because I’m different”.

I immediately said, “That you are!” and smiled.

The lil’ girl acted even sadder, she said, “I know.”

“Lil’ 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’re like a lil’ guardian angel sent to watch over all those people walking by.” She shook her head yes and smiled.

With that, she spread her wings and said, with a twinkle in her eye,
“I am. I’m your guardian angel.”

I was speechless….certain 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 that could see me. Since you believe, you see with 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 guardian angel is always watching over you.

Susan’s note:
I really liked the thought the Guardian Angel shared.
To me it sums everything up beautifully!
“You’re the only one that could see me.
Since you believe, you see with your heart”.
I believe that our loved ones are only a thought away.
When we believe they are still alive it is then we can “see” them again with our heart!

Sending Love and Compassion,
