A Little Beauty In Our Woods

November 24, 2008

The woods in my world are always interesting. There’s always something new to see, even if I go over the same path every day. Birds, flowers, a different pattern of light on a tree – I just never know what I might see. But sometimes a visit to the woods is really special.

Sometimes there are little people in the woods.  It’s true! Recently when I was in the woods, I saw the most beautiful little fairy queen.

Isn’t she precious? I wish I could see her there each and every day, but most of the time she lives an alternate life far north of here, in Canada. There’s she’s a busy little person with therapy sessions, doctor visits, and playing at home. She has a sunny disposition, and is a delight to be around.

Every year Ellie plays dress-up and Grandma takes pictures for a calendar.  We use a mix of these fantasy photos and pictures from her every day life for the calendars.  The profits from selling these calendars (and one I make with farm life pictures) help pay for some of the expenses of special equipment, therapy and other stuff Ellie needs because she has Cerebral Palsy.

She’s one of the best things in my world.
