Faery Child

This is my little friend McKenna I mentioned ... made of magic and faery dust.  Her mommy might disagree since she went through the whole birthing process but somehow it's hard to believe she didn't just magically appear on this planet to remind us of the wonder of it all.  On the way home from Escondido, in the car,  she sang Jason Mraz "I'm Yours" in her sweet little voice, with perfect pitch and looked me in the eyes and grinned. I almost burst into tears. Magic.

Learn to listen to silence.
Listen to the world around you.
And the silence will sing you a beautiful song.
~Melody Beattie

Every child is an artist.
The problem is how to remain an artist once we grow up.

Become as little children.
~Jesus of Nazareth

What a beautiful thing to say, and yes she is a faery. Before I started reading, I thought she was a realistic sketch of a faery sighting.

Your words made her even more magnificent too--thanks for that. Today, I had a rather unsavory encounter with a horrible individual. Reading your world about this wondrous child reminds me that there might be mean people of the world, but we can chose to stare at the miracles made people instead.

Thanks so much!

She is my little faery...however, she becomes a pixie once in a while! Mischievous to say the least! Well, perfect little demure faeries are boring, right!
