Angel in the Corner

The other night as I was saying goodnight to Will, he said he needed someone to sleep in bed with him because he got scared. I told him he was a big boy and that we couldn’t sleep in there with him. I reminded him that he has a bunch of stuffed animal friends to snuggle with and that God is always with him. Then I added that God has His angels watching over us all the time. I wondered to myself whether Will would find that tidbit reassuring or too interesting to allow him to sleep. Suddenly he looked up and pointed to the corner of the room and asked, “Is that one right there?” It’s hard not to laugh sometimes when kids are so sincere! Will did manage to fall asleep shortly thereafter.
