    The Pink Dress

    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

    For as we all know, a park full of strange people is not a place
    for young children to play al one.
    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

    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, "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

    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.
