The Pink Dress
8/10/2007 1:13:36 PM
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  


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  


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

She  looked at me and smiled, then slowly she got to her feet and Said,  

"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  


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.
