Once Upon A Time…
A little girl brought to her mother a special stone from a far away land. The sweet child earnestly explained that the special stone was, in fact, a wishing stone and that they must both rub the stone and make a wish.
And so they did.
The bright and cheerful little girl wished with all her heart to become a fairy-princess-mermaid while her fair and tired mother wanted nothing more than an afternoon nap. Sadly the world was a harsh place. The little girl had been born to common parents and even after her wish seemed to be entirely devoid of wings or tail. Her mother had dinner to make, laundry to fold and a lawn to mow, it seemed that neither of their wishes would come true. Undaunted they resolved to be hopeful.
There is always tomorrow and one never knows what tomorrow will bring.
Then, one fine day, a messenger came to the house with a mysterious looking brown box. They examined the box thoroughly but could find no markings that showed where it had come from. Mystified the pair opened the box and found a note within.
Under the message was a magical outfit that turned the happy little girl into the mermaid she had so fervently wished to become.
Mother and daughter were incredibly grateful to whomever sent the mysterious box and overjoyed to find that their wishes had indeed come true!
And they all lived happily ever after.
We really don’t know who sent it and Jane about fell over with excitement as she thanked me over and over and over again for the gift while I kept repeating that it wasn’t from me. She slept with it under her pillow that first night to keep it safe!
She know the pose 🙂
Does she ever… I almost made a GIF of all her poses- not one of them is a normal smiling pose- but the night got away from me so I just had to pick the best! 🙂
Brilliant! What an awesome way to fulfil wishes! 🙂
(Reminds me of Oswald the Mill House Cat. Ever read that?)
I haven’t but I think I’ll go put in a library request right now!
I hope they have it 🙂 And then I hope you like it!
Awww you have your own Fairy Godmother, how lovely!! 🙂
And they lived–and napped–happily ever after!
What a lovely post.
Although it does remind me of the Christmas where Child#1 received days-of-the-week underwear from her godmother while Child#2’s ‘fairy’ godmom sent an entire fairy princess outfit. I’m not saying it destroyed their relationship but it IS a blow when your sister gets to be magical royalty and you get underwear. To this day, it is not unusual for Child#2 to get Christmas gifts of days-of-the-week panties from her sister.
You might want to avoid underwear gifts for the big sisters just now…
Good advice… very good advice!
Wonderful. (It’s magic, of course.)
There are angels among us.
Indeed there are!
I always figured happy wishes come true!
And it’s the best when they do!
I love stories like this. 🙂
