“Are you a Fairy?”
There are many children who ask me the question “Are you a fairy?” Some just call me a fairy, some call me a moth, some call me the tooth fairy. Allow me to set the record straight and tell you what I am and am not.
First, I am a representation, a mirror or reflection of new life, a life restored and renewed. I am a natural symbol of a changed life, set free to thrive in the sun, the source of life. I am not magical, mystical, mythical or ethereal. I am a creature of the day; a symbol of beauty and grace.
I am not a fairy, I do not have pointed ears. I cannot shrink down. I don’t have pixie dust, but I do love sparkly things. I do not live in trees or mounds, but I am sheltered by the trees and find refuge within their branches. I live among the flowers. I am not a supernatural being, but, I am a noble creature. I do not steal or borrow without permission, I give. I am not temperamental, I am gentle. I am a loyal friend, an advocate for laughter.
