We will send our worries to the fairies. Tooth fairy, worry fairy.

November 19, 2011

She was telling me her troubles.
She cried quietly in the dark,
overwhelmed at their enormity.
And then- thunk- she fell asleep so hard
she literally crashed into my chest.
And I cradled her precious weight for a few moments
like she was my tiny infant again
and I was not troubled at all.

  1. I think I need a worry fairy alter in my home. Lay my troubles there before bed each night.

    A fairy altar!!! Love it!!!

    Isn’t that a kick-ass fairy house? When we made it, I actually wished for the first time in my life that I owned a glue gun. Glue stick not so good with moss. Hm…
