Have you ever been in the garden on a spring day? The warmth of the sun shining can be felt all around. The birds sweetly sing their song and flutter about in merriment. You feel the coolness of the earth in your hands as you work the ground cleaning the clutter from the past winter months allowing the young tender green sprouts more room to reach towards the sun as well as spread themselves to cover the ground. You find yourself humming softly; then it happens.
From the corner of your eye you see the familiar flicker. The sensation of their pressence can be felt as your skin tingles with excitement. They have joined you in your afternoon activities. You continue on as you had been yet now with the knowledge that you are not alone. The wee folk have come to enjoy the day as well. For the small bobbles and goodies you leave on occasion they in turn help to tend the garden as well as other things.
There are many things in life that one can not necessarily "see". Yet I wonder, does this make their existance unreal. I can speak from experience and say that there have been many times in my life where I have had encounters that can not fully be explained; at least not in the complete manner that some may wish to have in order to believe the story that I may try to tell them.
My daughter and I have long had the discussions on the existance of the wee folk. She has the logical mind of an adult and does not take kindly to remembering or adhering to her child like ways or thoughts. My grand daughter on the other hand has an immense love for the fae folk. She believes in them with all her heart and all her soul. Yes, I may have something to do with it, yet I believe also that she is a soul who will always keep her mind open to things, even as she grows older. We are both gently working on her mother to remind her of what it was like when she was a child and anything was possible.
I am sure many of you have noticed my button at the top in regards to February Fairies over at the Whimsical Cottage. Danni has done a wonderful job of bringing a month full of information, stories, crafts, and experiences all in tune with the wee folk. I will have a post featured today. If you have not had a chance to go and check it out I would suggest you venture over there and see. If you have any interest at all in fairies, I am sure you would find it wonderful.
