Just like the sign says, there will be no signs of me for awhile. Annual Conference, combined with time off for good behavior equals “No Signs” or “sign-ons” for at least 10 days–maybe longer. See ya when I see ya.
The 4-year old grandson of my next door neighbors recently welcomed (well, he’s accepting the inevitable) a new sister. He is doing fairly well, but has had a forlorn look or two cross his little face. One such moment occurred when he noted that all the cards streaming into the mailbox were for his sister and none were for him. His Guardian Angel took notice and sent him the following letter:
This is a short note from your Guardian Angel.
Just wanted to let you know that here in Heaven, we have processed an order to have an additional Guardian Angel delivered to your house. We have had many requests lately and are slightly behind schedule, but we do have a special Angel-in-Training who will be ready very soon to watch out for your new sister, Alyson.
In the meantime, it would be most appreciated if you would be good enough to give her the required daily “Angel Flutter Eye-Lash Kiss”–just like the one I give you every night as you are falling asleep.
Of course, if you would like to continue to give her an “Angel Flutter Eye-Lash Kiss” even after her personal Guardian Angel graduates and moves in, that would be OK, too.
I have been having a lot of fun with you this summer. Going to the reunion last weekend was the best day! There were so many things to do and lots of good food, too. I was so-o-o tired that night I almost fell asleep before you did! Fortunately, Penny (the puppy) licked my wings just in time, so I could give you your “Angel Flutter Eye-Lash Kiss” before we both drifted off for the night. Every Guardian Angel should have a Guardian Puppy like her.
Thanks for your help with this special request.
Yours very truly,
Your Guardian Angel
