Fearless Friday: The girl in the pink dress

posted by Susan Gregg

A friend just emailed me this so I thought I would share it with you. It touched my heart and I hope it touches yours too.

There was this little girl sitting by herself in the park.

Everyone passed by her and never stopped to see why she looked so sad.
 
Dressed in a worn pink dress, barefoot and dirty, the girl just sat and watched the people go by.  She never tried to speak. She never said a word.
 


Many people passed by her, but no one would stop.

The next day I decided to go back to the park in curiosity to see If the little girl would still be there. Yes, she was there, right in the very spot where she was Yesterday, and still with the same sad look in her eyes. Today I was to make my own move and walk over to the little girl.

For as we all know, a park full of strange people is not a place for young children to play alone. As I got closer I could see the back of the little girl’s dress. It was grotesquely shaped.

I figured that was the reason people just passed by and made no Effort to speak to her. Deformities are a low blow to our society and, heaven forbid if you make a step toward assisting someone who is different.

As I got closer, the little girl lowered her eyes slightly to Avoid my intent stare. As I approached her, I could see the shape of her back more clearly. She was grotesquely shaped in a humped over form.

I smiled to let her know it was OK; I was there to help, to talk.

I sat down beside her and opened with a simple, ‘Hello’

The little girl acted shocked, and stammered a ‘hi ‘; after a long stare into my eyes. I smiled and she shyly smiled back. We talked until darkness fell and the park was completely empty.
I asked the girl why she was so sad.

The little girl looked at me with a sad face said, ‘Because, I’m Different…’

I immediately said, ‘That you are!’; and smiled.

The little girl acted even sadder and said, ‘I know.’ 

‘Little girl,’ I said, ‘you remind me of an angel, sweet and innocent.’

She looked at me and smiled, then slowly she got to her feet and Said, ‘Really?’

‘Yes, you’re like a little Guardian Angel sent to watch over all the people walking by.’

She nodded her head yes, and smiled.

With that she opened the back of her pink dress and allowed her Wings to spread, then she said ‘I am.’

‘I’m your Guardian Angel,’ with a twinkle in her eye.

I was speechless — sure I was seeing things.

She said,  ‘For once you thought of someone other than yourself.  My job here is done’..

I got to my feet and said, ‘Wait, why did no one stop to help an Angel?’

She looked at me, smiled, and said, ‘You’re the only one that could see me,’ and then she was gone.

And with that, my life was changed dramatically. So, when you think you’re all you have, remember, your angel is Always watching over you.

    This story of the girl in the pink dress
    really touched my heart this morning…
    Some folks are so quick to judge and look the
    other way…where oh where would we be if God did
    the same.after all Moses stuttered..And Not one of
    us is perfect…No not one…so take time to be kind
    it cost nothing to smile and to say hello…..
    Go Out and have a Blessed day in the LORD~

What do angels know that we don't know?
The main thing angels know that we tend to forget is that this is a safe universe and that we are loved, unconditionally. They know that only the love is real and that everything else is an illusion or delusion created by our filter system: our beliefs, agreements and assumptions. Love, happin

Refelctions on the Vietnam War
I was surprised when I was reminded that it was the 50th anniversary of the Vietnam War. I was in high school when the war started and much of my early life was lived against the back drop of vivid images of the war every night on the evening news. When I was in college the massacre at Kent State
