Angels don't eat, but they do drink from holy cowsPosted Wednesday, July 13, 2011, at 2:48 PM
Do you believe in angels - and that someone or something from up above is always watching over you?
I'd like to think that my mom - who died when I was 19 - has been my guardian angel and kept me safe in those moments when I need a little watching over. My dad is now my second guardian angel. Just like parents; always keeping an eye on their child.
I encountered this cute email - children's explanation of angels - that I'd like to pass on.
* I only know the names of two angels. Hark and Harold.
* Everybody's got it all wrong. Angels don't wear halos anymore. I forget why, but scientists are working on it.
* It's not easy to become an angel! First, you die. Then you go to heaven,then there's still the flight training to go through. And then you got to agree to wear those angel clothes.
* Angels work for God and watch over kids when God has to go do something else.
* My guardian angel helps me with math, but he's not much good for science.
* Angels don't eat, but they drink milk from holy cows.
* Angels talk all the way while they're flying you up to heaven. The basic message is where you went wrong before you got dead.
* When an angel gets mad, he takes a deep breath and counts to ten. And when he lets out his breath, somewhere there's a tornado.
* Angels have a lot to do and they keep very busy. If you lose a tooth, an angel comes in through your window and leaves money under your pillow. Then when it gets cold, angels go north for the winter.
* Angels live in cloud houses made by God and his son, who's a very good carpenter.

* All angels are girls because they gotta wear dresses and boys didn't go for it.
* My angel is my grandma who died last year. She got a big head start on helping me while she was still down here on earth.
Here's hoping you have a guardian angel watching over you at all times. And when you are driving, rushing as we do each day, so the saying goes, please, "Never drive faster than your guardian angel can fly."
