A Lovely Fair Maiden

Once upon a time,
long ago,
a young woman who 
lived in an enchanted forest 
gave birth to a sweet
baby girl.
 
 
She named her Danelle.
 
 
She grew up to be a joyful
child loved by all.
Even the creatures of the 
sea adored her.
 
 
 
The animals in the forest
loved her as well,
 
 
and the trees came alive when
she sat underneath them.
 
 
 
She was so smart that
nothing got in the way of
her dreams, and she
soon became the teacher
of the woods.
 
 
The people of the forest
made her their
princess.
 
 
She worked all the time,
and gave so much of herself
to help others.
Her mother insisted that
she have a day of rest with a
celebration on the day
she was born.
 
Danelle  knew how
much she meant to her
family and friends.
  She came to
the celebration to find
presents, laughter, and fun,
but she found much more.
She received the
greatest gift of all...
the gift of love.
 
 
Happy Birthday
Nel.

And a happy "birth" day to you, her mother, who worked to bring her into this world, has loved her and most of all, has been her role model for being the woman she is today.

And a happy day of rejoicing to sweet Nel...Anita

"Because time itself is like a spiral, something special happens on your birthday each year: The same energy that God invested in you at birth is present once again."
Menachem Mendel Schneerson


I have NO doubt that all stated, in this post, by the Fairy Queen is true and anyone who has met and known Nel knows, and treasure, the awesomeness of knowing you, and how nice it is to brush against your goodness. Of Heart. Of Mind.

Be Very Happy Fair Nel. Your Happiness is the Happiness of the ones you Love and meet.

Happy Birthday, Danelle, our Sweet Nel!!!

Happy birthday to your daughter, Sheri, I wish her all the best for the new year! My daughter celebrated her birthday yesterday :). As she is studying in another town, she wasn't at home for the first time and my thoughts were with her! But next week semester ends and I am looking forward to seeing her and hug her! You wrote such a nice post Sheri, I wish I would have had the same idea!
Have a nice week,
Barbara

Sheri-
This is so magical in so many ways!
I adore this special tribute to your one and only Nel. I know she is your heart and soul and indeed she brought light to your life and all of the creatures in the forest.
I am wondering if that is you holding her?
You are both beautiful and dear to us all!
Happy Birthday Dear Nel!

Good morning beautiful friend and fairy maiden! I love this post, and Nel looks so beautiful!

Thank you for coming over to my new post; I thought of you as I looked for photos of Greece, and there are so many that I could do an entire post on Greece alone....those fabulous crystal blue beaches, the white homes on the cliffs, THE FOOD, the people!

Thank you for your support though you won't be participating....and yes, that's me in Italy!

Big hugs to one of my favorite friends to connect with!!! Anita
