"Angels danced the day you were born and
they wept when they welcomed you home."
Quote by - LuLoo
My mother often told me that the day my sister Suzanne was born that she
became a blessed child for the angels danced. All the Seraphim, Cherubim and
even the Archangels, and all the other Heavenly angels. They sang and danced
for this earthly angel sent to bring joy. Suzanne grew to be a delightful girl,
full of happiness, it sparkled in her eyes, she was beloved by all, she touched
people's heart, and oh, how she was loved. But, so many times her courageous
spirit brought her in harms way. I was too young but heard the stories told
of how she fell in a fast moving rapid river and almost drowned and fell down
a very steep stairway and almost died. Almost, until the day she was playing
on a snowbank and slipped into the street and died. Azrael, the Angel of Death
came to take her and he was weeping. He carried her to Heaven. At the golden
gate, all the angels waited, although they wept, they also celebrated the return
of this angel child and I imagine her dancing up there in Heaaven with a twinkle
in her eye with all the angels. Finally, back to where she belongs . . .
a blessed sweet child sent
from above not meant to be . . .
angels dance and weep
