Do You Need Some Pixie Dust

Laughing, dancing, having the time of her life, Faerie Fun went from mushroom house to toadstool cottage, Spreading joy, Playing with everyone In a kind and pleasant way. There was going to be no sadness In Faerie Forest today if she could help it. It is up to me, she said. I am the catalyst for happiness today. She ate breakfast with the Nymph family, And they laughed about silly stuff, But no people. She watched Lila Leprechaun’s Lilliput dance, And she clapped and clapped while Mama Leprechaun took care of the Unhappy baby. Baby calm. All is well. Faerie Fun was soon skipping Up the walk to the most challenging House of all. Change your attitude! She warned herself. Change your attitude! Her jaw was clamped tightly shut now, and she Was already filled with dread. Pixie Dust! Her internal voice yelled. NOW! The sparkly particles surrounded her, and settled down all over her, calming her instantly, and Changing her attitude from not-so-great to wonderful. Before she left Grump-Eater’s house, he gave her a long, lingering hug. No one gets me like you, he said. Progress at last. Sometimes it is simply a matter of us changing our attitude.

Caren, Pixie dust will always have a new meaning. "Faerie Fun went from mushroom house to toadstool cottage, Spreading joy, Playing with everyone In a kind and pleasant way." PS - Never put up that fence. -Richard

I am so open it is crazy; people tell me I need to build a wall. I refuse. So they suggest a fence. I laugh. Opening the gate.

Sandra, I always appreciate your comments and lovely stop-bys. I LOVE faeries, and elves, and brownies, and dare I say leprechauns? Okay, but quietly.
