Just the other day I wrote a post titled A moment in time , sharing my experience with a former coworker and pointing out that it doesn’t take much on our part to make someone’s day a little brighter. And once again this is exactly what my friend Roda did here, dedicating this beautiful, full of magic post to me. Every time something like this happens or I get nominated for an award, it seems to flood my heart with emotions of gratitude and feelings that I struggle to articulate. I’m truly blessed to have found so many wonderful people here on wordpress and this blog has made such a big difference to me. It has allowed me to help and inspire a few people, but on a yet bigger scale it has inspired me and strengthened my faith in humanity and all things good. Leading a busy life and falling into a routine often presents a struggle to engage with such people in real life. I mean the people we meet in person as we rush past each other and chase our obligations, trying to cram everything into a day that never seems to be long enough to accomplish it all. This post made me pause yet again as I wonder how many wonderful opportunities we pass up each day! How many inspirational stories of survival and fighting for our beliefs stand before us and we never know. How many of us rush by such precious childhood memories of catching fairies to protect and keep us safe!
Thank you for this beautiful tribute and reminding me of all the wonders big and small my dear fairy sister. You are one in a million and I say it again that if you still haven’t visited Roda’s blog, “Well what are you waiting for?”. The world / we all need inspiration and she truly is a master of empowering everybody to live up to their full potential. XOXO
When I was a little girl, I would run through the backyard with a mason jar, filled with grass and twigs, waiting to catch fairies at dusk. It was a good thing the mosquitoes never liked my blood. Although, I was afraid of the dark, I could not stay away from this summer ritual.
