My Special Faerie

Ok, Britt. Now that I am getting older, I thing it is time we have a little talk.
I have a special gift for you. This is no ordinary gift. It is a gift of love that was given to me when I was your age. It is a fairy!

FaerieNot just any fairy. A magic fairy made for me by Nana. She was given to me to help me and protect me from harm.

Once our Mom was asleep and a stranger called our house. My fairy told me not to answer the phone.


Then a man came to the door. I did not know who he was. He said he was the ice cream man. I really believed him, but my fairy, "Ariah", knew he was bad.

DragonSo she turned into a big dragon and scared the man away.

When I asked her why, she told me, "That is why I am here, to teach and protect you."
She has always been there for me, even when I did not know it.

One day my friend and I were fighting. She sprinkled fairy dust on us and we began to laugh and play.

I have always loved Ariah. She is part of our family. As long as I have had her with me, I have never felt scared or lonely.

She even sleeps in a special box by my bed. I keep special toys in it so she never gets bored.

Sometimes at night I hear her jingle the bells. I think it is her way of letting me know she is there.

FaerieNow that I am older, it is time to learn on my own. So I asked Ariah if I could pass her on to you. That way I will know you will always be safe and happy.

I love you, Britt, and I hope you will always love and protect Ariah. I also hope you have as many magical adventures in your childhood as I have.

Sweet Dreams!
