And that, she said, is how she found out that her toddler was not an angel, just a little boy filled with light.

Angels & Light
Yesterday, a colleague told me one of the most beautiful things I have ever heard. She said when her oldest child was a toddler (he's now 20), he was so full of purity and light and allure that she believed him to be an angel, even though up until that time she wasn't sure if angels existed. How could something so full of otherworldly love be human? She decided to ask the child himself if he were an angel. After all, he would know and would surely tell her the truth. And so she looked in his eyes and asked, "Baby, are you an angel?" And he giggled and said, "No, Mama."
