Guardian Angel

Emily was just toddling when they found her there at the base of the angel. Wearing a simple hand-smocked dress and a soft wool coat and hat, the note attached to the top button read, 

Please love my little Princess in all the ways I know I cannot. 

Bless you.

As fortune and perhaps a bit of guardian angel magic would have it, Emily didn’t spent too many hours alone. And very soon after, she was adopted by a new mama and daddy who loved her with all their hearts and gave her the best life any little girl could ever hope for.

All grown now, Emily fulfilled a lifelong wish venturing back to visit her angel. She stood tall and lovely against the crystal blue sky just as she remembered.

From the bench nearby she heard a vaguely familiar voice that touched her heart deeply the minute she heard it…”Princess, could it be? Is it you?”
