A Newborn's Conversation with God

I found this the other day tucked away in a folder in my email. Somehow the words in this story mean something truly amazing to me now that I have one little man who is walking, talking, becoming more and more independent every day, and yet I still have this little baby girl who relies on me for everything. How special these moments are.

A Newborn's 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 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.'"
