The Rainbow Bridge...

Among the many Waldorf traditions which speak to me, no voice is cleaer than the Rainbow Bridge Story at this time....our baby boy is about to complete his first year...one trip around the sun. Twelve beautiful months.
Today, I began creating his Rainbow Bridge story....I feel as if I am writing letters to a dear friend...
..."once upon a time there was a boy named W who lived with the angels in heaven. He was very happy there! He looked at the beautiful colors, listened to lovely music, and that was where he belonged..."
"the next night, the child had a dream...while ten moons waxed and waned, he rocked in a little boat..."
"At the end of that time, a beautiful rainbow bridge stretched from heaven to earth...on it came the child, as a tiny baby, and slid into his mother and fathers waiting arms..."
My beautiful little one. Every day, every moment is a treasure. Your laughter saves my soul...your scent is the sweetest honey I have ever smelled. Writing this story has been such a beautiful experience...I am so eager to share it with you for years to come, on your special day.


  1. Oh the wonder of it all, just beautiful. love and light Marie

  2. Oh this is gorgeous! I love the photo of you and your little one in the grass too - these moments are so precious!

  3. Beautiful. This reminded me of a story I read shortly after having Leah (it always makes me cry):

    A Newborn's Conversation with God

    A baby asked God, "They tell me you are sending me to earth tomorrow,
    but how am I going to live there being so small and helpless?"
    God said, "Your angel will be waiting for you and will take care of you."

    The child further inquired, "But tell me, here in heaven I don't have
    to do anything but sing and smile to be happy."

    God said, "Your angel will sing for you and will also smile for you.
    And you will feel your angel's love and be very happy."

    Again the small child asked, "And how am I going to be able to understand
    when people talk to me if I don't know the language?"

    God said, "Your angel will tell you the most beautiful and sweet words
    you will ever hear, and with much patience and care, your angel will
    teach you how to speak."

    "And what am I going to do when I want to talk to you?"

    God said, "Your angel will place your hands together and will teach
    you how to pray."

    "Who will protect me?"

    God said, "Your angel will defend you even if it means risking its life."

    "But I will always be sad because I will not see you anymore."

    God said, "Your angel will always talk to you about Me and will teach
    you the way to come back to Me, even though I will always be next to you."

    At that moment there was much peace in Heaven, but voices from Earth
    could be heard and the child hurriedly asked, "God, if I am to leave
    now, please tell me my angel's name."

    God said, You will simply call her, "Mom."

  4. What an awesome and thoughtful focus. This is what matters - not what theme the party will be.

    So glad to meet another Waldorf Mama - and not so far away I might add.

    Namaste, Nicole

  5. So beautiful. How I love the rainbow bridge! A few hours before our third child was born there was a most magnificent rainbow up high. And another some days before arrival of our fourth. Lots of magic and wonder all around us, we just need to be in tune. Wishing your little one had a truly special 1st birthday this month.

  6. Just came across your blog, such beautiful pictures and sentiments, the Waldorf school certainly look heavenly.

  7. Так светло и красиво!
