It was one of those days where imagination touches reality and something magical takes place. Today was Fairy Day.
Imagination is more important than knowledge. For while knowledge defines all we currently know and understand, imagination points to all we might yet discover and create.
He who can no longer pause to wonder and stand rapt in awe is as good as dead; his eyes are closed. ~Albert Einstein
We embraced Fairy Day with all the imagination we could muster and invited our friends to do the same.
And added a sprinkle of
glitter pixie dust for good measure.
Then we tried to lure the fairies with Yummy treats…
and goodies to sweeten the celebration.
What with some yummy Fairy Berry Punch we knew they would come.
And they did. It worked.
Soon the garden was full of wee ones playing…
And exploring and dreaming…
And crafting fairy treasures to take home.
But the best part was spending time with our fairy loving friends.
Even the Fairy Queen SassyPants made a grand appearance. And the little ones fell all over her in admiration. Calling her ‘Royal Highness’ and begging to bring her goodies and favors.
Hope couldn’t resist flying. Her Happy Thoughts were in such abundance.
And even the Fairy Queen graced her with a special Fairy Dance.
And before we knew it the celebration was drawing to a close. And one by one and two by two our guests wished us well.
Then our wonderful friends bid us farewell and left with twinkles in their eyes.
And after they left and the sun settled below the horizon, the garden came alive with even more enchantment. The celebration had been cleaned up and goodies put away. But magic hung so thick in the air that I had to set alone, in the peace and quite and soak it in.
And dream of next year’s Fairy Day Celebration.
And wonder if it was just my imagination or were the houses in the fairy village glowing brighter after such a magical evening.
And that did it. I will always celebrate Fairy Day, even when my kids are grown and moved away. I never want to lose my youthful heart.
Hope you all had a Magical Day.
