When you're down to nothing, God is up to something."

This is beautiful! Try not to cry.

She jumped up as soon as she saw the surgeon come out of the operating
room. She said: "How is my little boy ? Is he going to be all right ?
When can I see him ?"

The surgeon said, "I'm sorry. We did all we could, but your boy didn't make it."
Sally said, "Why do little children get cancer ? Doesn't God care any more ? Where were you, God, when my son needed you ?"

The surgeon asked, "Would you like some time alone with your son ? One
of the nurses will be out in a few minutes, before he's transported to
the university."

Sally asked the nurse to stay with her while she said good bye to son.
She ran her fingers lovingly through his thick red curly hair. "Would
you like a lock of his hair ?" the nurse asked.

Sally nodded yes. The nurse cut a lock of the boy's hair, put it in a plastic bag and handed it to Sally.
The mother said, "It was Jimmy's idea to donate his body to the
University for Study. He said it might help somebody else. "I said no
at first, but Jimmy said, 'Mom, I won't be using it after I die. Maybe
it will help some other little boy spend one more day with his Mom."
She went on, "My Jimmy had a heart of gold. Always thinking of someone
else. Always wanting to help others if he could."

Sally walked out of Children's Mercy Hospital for the last time, after
spending most of the last six months there. She put the bag with
Jimmy's belongings on the seat beside her in the car.
The drive home was difficult. It was even harder to enter the empty
house. She carried Jimmy's belongings, and the plastic bag with the
lock of his hair to her son's room.

She started placing the model cars and other personal things back in
his room exactly where he had always kept them. She laid down across
his bed and, hugging his pillow, cried herself to sleep.
It was around midnight when Sally awoke. Laying beside her on the bed was a folded letter. The letter said :

"Dear Mom, I know you're going to miss me; but don't think that I
will ever forget you, or stop loving you, just 'cause I'm not around to
say "I Love You" . I will always love you, Mom, even more with each
day. Someday we will see each other again. Until then, if you want to
adopt a little boy so you won't be so lonely, that's okay with me. He
can have my room and old stuff to play with. But, if you decide to get
a girl instead, she probably wouldn't like the same things us boys do.
You'll have to buy her dolls and stuff girls like, you know. Don't be
sad thinking about me. This really is a neat place. Grandma and Grandpa
met me as soon as I got here and showed me around some, but it will
take a long time to see everything. The angels are so cool. I love to
watch them fly. And, you know what? Jesus doesn't look like any of his
pictures. Yet, when I saw Him, I knew it was Him. Jesus himself took me
to see GOD ! And guess what, Mom ? I got to sit on God's knee and talk
to Him, like I was somebody important. That's when I told Him that I
wanted to write you a letter, to tell you good bye and everything. But
I already knew that wasn't allowed. Well, you know what Mom ? God
handed me some paper and His own personal pen to write you this letter.
I think Gabriel is the name of the angel who is going to drop this
letter off to you. God said for me to give you the answer to one of the
questions you asked Him 'Where was He when I needed him ?' "God said He
was in the same place with me, as when His son Jesus was on the cross.
He was right there, as He always is with all His children. Oh, by the
way, Mom, no one else can see what I've written except you. To everyone
else this is just a blank piece of paper. Isn't that cool ? I have to
give God His pen back now. He needs it to write some more names in the
Book of Life. Tonight I get to sit at the table with Jesus for supper.
I'm sure the food will be great.
Oh, I almost forgot to tell you. I don't hurt anymore. The cancer is
all gone. I'm glad because I couldn't stand that pain anymore and God
couldn't stand to see me hurt so much, either. That's when He sent The
Angel of Mercy to come get me. The Angel said I was a Special Delivery
! How about that ?

Signed with Love from God, Jesus & Me.
