Almost 9 months exactly after my Mom died my youngest child was born. I felt truly blessed by God having this new baby come after such a difficult year.
I did feel regret, though, that my new son would never get to know my wonderful Mom.
As my baby got older, however, I started to notice something. When I would be playing with my son he would often look past me, over my shoulder and smile. At other times it seemed like he was laughing and playing with someone I couldn’t see or hear.
This mystery suddenly became clear one day when I… showed him his Grandma’s picture and he giggled like he had known her all of his short life. It was then that it occurred to me that while my son may not have gotten to know my Mom in person, he had certainly gotten to know her angelic spirit watching over him.
I was remembering all of this the other day while taking a stroll. It made my own spirit feel warm with God’s love and joy. While I was walking along too I saw a little girl who I knew was always shy around strangers.
I was amazed then when she looked at me, lit up in a big smile, and waved. That’s when I realized that children can not only sometimes see the invisible angels around us, but can often see the angel living within each of us as well.
May we see the angels in each other and allow our own angel within to share its love, joy, peace, happiness, goodness, and light with the world.
