The day comes when Little Angel and Great Angel walk together to take Little Angel to Earth. Great Angel takes Little Angel to Radiant Sun and Silvery Moon, who have gifts that are just for Little Angel.
Down the Rainbow Bridge and into the hearts and home of Little Angel’s parents they go. But Great Angel returns to Heaven, taking Little Angel’s wings for safekeeping until all Little Angel’s good deeds on Earth are accomplished, and Little Angel returns to use them again.
And it is this last facet which is such a poignant joy to see – that we enter the world with good deeds to do, and when they are done we shall return to Great Angel and the wings we left behind.
Any child enfolded in this tale will carry a seed of comfort, confidence and courage that will grow into an adult strength of purpose and love. My hope is that this story goes out into the world, and that for each adult who learns it, children ten-fold hear it; and for each child who hears it told to him/her, that child’s confidence of life is shared with ten who have not had it told to them. May this seed become a great tree with many, many healthy, beautiful branches.
