my little angel

lately micah has been too "scared" to go to sleep at night. frankly, i think she's full of it. i think, her friend at school has mentioned being "scared" of things like monsters outside the window and the darkness. but, i humor her "fears" anyway.

it's hot at night (or at least up until 2 nights ago) but she keeps telling us that she's afraid of the fan and that it will blow all the monsters in. i'm not turning it off because she'll over heat and sweat lakes into the sheets. so, the other night i scrounged and scrounged for "something" - hoping when i saw it i would just know. you know?

well, i found it. a small, stained glass angel. my mother had bought it in the hospital when micah was born. it's pink and she is holding a small silver rag doll and on her chest it reads "daughter". i put the angel on micah's dresser where she could see it and told her it would protect her.

this morning, she says to me, "mommy, i foun my angel an she makes me safe."
