There was this little girl sitting by herself in the park. Everyone
passed by her and never stopped to see why she looked so sad. Dressed
in a worn pink dress, barefoot 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 by her, but no one would stop.
The next day I decided to go back to the park in curiosity to see if the
little girl would still be there. Yes, she was there, Right inthe very
spot where she was yesterday, and still with the same sad Look in her eyes.
Today I was to make my own move and walk over to the little girl. For as
we all know, a park full of strange people is not a place for young children
to play alone. As I got closer I could see the back of the Little girl's dress.
It was grotesquely shaped. I figured that was the reason people just
passed by and made no effort to speak to her. Deformities Are a low
blow to our society and, heaven forbid if you make a step toward
Assisting someone who is different.
As I got closer, the little girl lowered her eyes slightly to avoid my
intent stare. As I approached her, I could see the shape of her back
more clearly. She 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 until darkness fell and the park was completely empty.
I asked the girl why she was so sad. The little girl looked at me
with a sad face said, "Because, I'm different."
I immediately said, "That you are!," and smiled.
The little girl acted even sadder and said, "I know."
"Little girl," I said, "you remind me of an angel, sweet and innocent."
She looked at me and smiled, then slowly she got to her feet and
"Yes, you're like a little Guardian Angel sent to watch over all
People walking by."
She nodded her head yes, and smiled. With that she opened the back of
her pink dress and allowed her wings to spread. Then, with a twinkle
in her eye, she said "I am your Guardian Angel.
I was speechless -- surely I was seeing things.
She said, "For once you thought of someone other than yourself.
My job here is done."
I got to my feet and said, "Wait, why did no one stop to help an angel?"
She looked at me, smiled, and said, "You're the only one that could
See me," and then was gone in an instant.
With that, my life changed dramatically. So, when you think you're
all you have, remember, your angel is always watching over you.
