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 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. Then when it gets cold, angels go south for the winter.
--Sara, age 6

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

What I don't get about angels is, why when someone is in love, they shoot arrows at them.  
--Sarah, age 7

Fantastic. You gave me a much needed laugh! One thing you should know; so far as I can recall, no one, not even my mother, rest her soul, called me an "angel." I just don't understand that. :-)

Too cute, Sylvia! Thanks for posting them.

"They go south for the winter" made me laugh out loud. ;)

What Can I Say?

What Can I Say?
I'm interested in almost everything. Use to like to travel, but it's too expensive now. I take Tai Chi classes, swim, volunteer in a Jump-start program for pre-schoolers. I'm an avid reader and like nearly everyone these days I follow politics avidly. I'm a former teacher and Special Projects Coordinator for a Telecommunications company, Assistant to the President of a Japanese silicon wafer manufacturing company. Am now enjoying retirement -- most of the time. I have two daughters, one son-in-law and two sons scattered all over the country. No grandchildren.
