The Beauty of The Mind of a Child
Liam, age 6, the child of Mom's grand-niece, was being brought to see Aunt Minnie at the hospital, the day before she passed away. His Mom had told him that he might not see Aunt Minnie again because she would soon be going to Heaven. He walked in, holding his favorite Teddy, sat Teddy on the bed by Mom's hand, and told his Mom "If Aunt Minnie is going to Heaven, she will need Teddy to take with her". His dear little hand patted Teddy one more time, and he walked away. No dry eyes in the room!! His Grandma asked him if he was sure, because he would not see Teddy again.... he answered that he was sure. Mom was not conscious at the time, but someone laid her hand over that Teddy, and her hand never left it, until the hand fell in total relaxation, after her last breath. So, Teddy is with her.
BEAUTY ALWAYS EXISTS....EVEN IN THE MIDST OF SORROW.
