The Little Girl’s Mission
One day, while I was walking in the park, I noticed a little girl. Barefoot and dirty, she was watching all the people indifferently going by. She was silent and did not say a word. Everybody just passed by and did not pay any attention to her.
The very next day I decided to go back to that park and clear up if the girl was still there. She was right there in the same spot as yesterday, sadly looking around. I felt worried for her, as a park full of strangers is not a good place for small kids to play alone.
I started approaching her and suddenly noticed that the girl’s back was oddly deformed. A thought crossed my mind that maybe this was the reason why everyone was avoiding her, and no one was trying to help.
I got closer and smiled to let her know that I was there to talk, to help. I started with, “Hello” and sat down near her. The girl was very surprised, however, after a long stare into my eyes, she replied, “Hi.”
We talked and talked, so many hours passed by and darkness came. The park became silent and empty. Then I carefully asked the little girl, why she was so sorrowful and lonesome.
“I am different, that’s why," was her reply. I agreed with her and smiled. “Yes, you are,” and then I continued, “You remind of an angel, pure and sweet.”.
She slowly got to her feet and smiled, “Really?” I nodded, thinking to myself that she looked just like a little Guardian Angel, watching all the people going by.
To my surprise, she turned to me and admitted, “I am. I am your Guardian Angel.”
Then she spread her wings. I was so amazed at the transformation, that I couldn’t say a word. After a moment she explained, “Think of someone other than yourself. That was my purpose here.”
Then I got to my feet and asked, “Why did no one else stop to help you?” “Because only you could see me,” was her answer, and then she was gone.
