“Do you like my dress?” A little girl asked of a woman passing by. “My mommy made it just for me,” she said with a tear in her eye.
“Well, I think it’s very pretty, so tell me little one, why are you crying?” The woman said.
With a quiver in her voice the little girl answered, “After Mommy made me this dress, she had to go away.”
“Well now, with a little girl like you waiting for her, I’m sure she’ll be right back.”
“No ma’am, you don’t understand,” said the little girl through her tears, “my Daddy said that she’s up in heaven now with Grandfather.”
Finally the woman realized what she meant, and why she was crying.
Kneeling down she gently cradled the girl in her arms and together they cried for the mommy that was gone.
Then suddenly the little girl did something that the woman thought was a bit strange.
