Gifts for the Fairies
The whole family is home for Christmas.
We woke this morning to rain but by the time we finished opening
presents and playing a few games it had begun to snow.
Great big beautiful flakes that just called for us to go out for a walk.
Two of my daughters hadn’t visited Fairy Lane since it’s creation
so off we went trekking to the woods.
But we didn’t go empty handed.
My oldest daughter made a gift for the fairies – little stockings to keep
their feet toasty.
We carefully strung them on a clothesline and hung them from the bark.
Two lines were hung over doors, one at each end of Fairy Lane.
The fairies are sure to find them.
We watched for a while but couldn’t spy any of them.
But our dog spent a lot of time sniffing around. Could it be she could sense
the fairies were about?
I don’t know but others were looking too because we saw other gifts
left in the woods.
A red heart hung in a tree.
And a little green nutcracker keeping guard by one of the doors.
It’s nice to know that others are thinking of the fairies too.
Goodbye Fairy Lane, we'll visit again soon.
Merry Christmas from my family to yours.
