Guardian Angels in Waiting by Bunny Clarke

I was told many years ago, a story about guardian angels. The story began in a little meadow with the creek a short way away. Three of the guardian angels were discussing what they hoped for. The first said, “I hope mine is beautiful and kind.” The second said, “I hope mine is very smart.” The third said, “I just hope mine will be kind, honest and loving.” The other two realized they had missed the mark on what they wanted and readjusted their original wishes. Soon, all three began to fade from the meadow as they were assigned to their people. One was given a beautiful little girl. The other a bright eyed little boy. The third was given a baby with Down’s Syndrome. The angel was thrilled, but knew his work would begin immediately since his person was very ill. Off to surgery he went with his person to make sure they had all the help they needed to survive and heal. :o)

I would bet none of you were expecting this simple story. The only reason I know is because a friend’s son who has Down’s told me it was the story of his guardian angel.

Created starting with a work created in Apophysis 7X and then FilterMania 2 on my iPad. I finished the work up in Photoshop Touch.

    What an intresting story Bunny and a great creative work

  • Thank you Malcolm. It was interesting, because unknown to me, my daughter had posted a story about her friend and their child with Down’s and how poorly the airline had treated them leaving Ireland to come back to the states. Very sad.
