Tiny angel

Just stumbled upon this blog. And there I read the most beautiful story. It's a story that is traditionally told at this school to each child on their birthday about how they came to the earth.

"The story goes that a tiny angel up in heaven looks down onto the Earth and longs to be a part of all that is going on. That angel then goes on a journey to the stars who give the gift of the colour of their hair. Then to the moon who gives the colour of their eyes. Finally they leave their wings behind for safe keeping and head out across the rainbow bridge, which brings them down to the Earth. When they reach the end of the bridge there is a family waiting to meet them and welcome them and to give the greatest gift of all. The gift of their name."

One day I will tell that very story...

But until then my tiny angel, I'll be waiting for you at the end of the rainbow bridge.
