I love angels, as we all know by now.  I collect them, stone or wooden ones, or real ones, if they will have me.  

Today I received an e-mail that I thought was just adorable and inspirational to the max!  Children telling us all about those angels.  Enjoy!

Angels Explained By Children

> Hark and Harold.

> Everybody's got it all wrong. Angels don't wear halos anymore. 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 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.

> 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

> And if they don't make the animals get better,

What I don't get about angels is why,  when someone is in love, they shoot arrows at them.
