I'm a fan of angels. Those Angel books out a few years ago? Read them all. I particularly appreciate Vicky's take on Angels, Pets, and their Children - the very last entry in this list sent to me by email. Too good not to share. Foster dogs back next week!

Angels Explained By Children
I only know the names of two angels, Hark and Harold.
~Gregory, age 5
Everybody's got it all wrong. Angels don't wear halos any more. I forget why, but scientists are working on it..
-Olive, age 9
It's not easy to become an angel! First, you die. Then you go to Heaven, and then there's still the flight training to go through. And then you got to agree to wear those angel clothes.
-Matthew, age 9
Angels work for God and watch over kids when God has to go do something else.
-Mitchell, age 7
My guardian angel helps me with math, but he's not much good for science.
-Henry, age 8
Angels don't eat, but they do drink milk from Holy Cows.
-Jack, age 6
Angels talk all the way while they're flying you up to heaven. The main subject is where you went wrong before you got dead..
Daniel, age 9
When an angel gets mad, he takes a deep breath and counts to ten. And when he lets out his breath again, somewhere there's a tornado.
-Reagan, age 10
Angels have a lot to do and they keep very busy.
If you lose a tooth, an angel comes in through your window and leaves money under your pillow. Then when it gets cold, angels go south for the winter.
Angels live in cloud houses made by God and his Son, who's a very good carpenter.
-Jared, age 8
All angels are girls because they gotta wear dresses and boys didn't go for it.
-Antonio, age 9
My angel is my grandma who died last year. She got
a big head start on helping me while she was still down here on earth.
-Ashley ~ age 9
Some of the angels are in charge of helping heal sick animals and pets.. And if they don't make the animals get better, they help the child get over it.
-Vicki, age 8
