On a rainy, cold Winters day a little flower fairy came over to play.
She arrived all dressed in pink, flower in her pretty hair and a big smile on her face. Her proud Mummy looking on with love.
The little flower fairy's name is Laura
and her dream is to be a florist !
So the table was set, flowers were prepared and my little friend Laura began to live her dream.
Flower Fairy Laura smiled the whole afternoon long, snipping and poking her pile of fresh roses into a teacup full of securing foam. I gave her basic instructions on how to create the round shape design and then let her explore all on her own.
My honest thoughts.....she is a natural !
The love and excitement on her little face was glorious and I hoped that this day would be etched into her mind for the whole of her life.
When we are children we should be encouraged to live out our dreams at an early age to encourage us to move forward towards happiness in our desire to succeed. Not success monetary wise but success in being happy and completely in love in our chosen career.
Money is irrelevant compared to desire, happiness and fulfilment
It is highly possible that Miss Laura may change her mind about her future and that is ok.
She will grow and pave her happy little way through her journey of life her own way. Time and wisdom will guide her.
BUT one day I hope that a little spark will trigger in her mind reminding her of the wonderful afternoon she had creating something with her mind and her hands that she was so completely proud of.
and I hope that her passion of flowers will always remain.
She reminded me so much of myself at her age, making little fairy beds in the garden in old matchboxes or terracotta pots.
Miss Laura the flower flower does exactly the same thing !
Her gentle soul and her wonderful love for flowers left a lasting impression on me.
Children are so incredibly precious that's for certain.
To see her create with passion opened a tiny door to her soul that I could see that her Mummy adored.
Her Mummy Karen and myself were old school friends.
Karen sat off to the side and watch her little fairy create. I had to giggle when Karen tried to show Laura where to put a particular flower only Laura telling her that she knew already !
(Another snippet of myself ! lol)
Miss Laura the flower fairy has passion in her heart and with that quality she will truly be happy.
and 'all by herself' she created a little teacup full of love !
She even dared to add a Brussel Sprout to her design.
She did an amazing job !and when we had finished it was time for tea and cookies.
and then as her Mummy and I were chatting, a sweet little arm reached out to me and handed me a little tin of pretty note cards.
Mummy and daughter moment.
Thankyou Miss Laura for being my very delightful guest for the afternoon. May your dream of being a florist continue to inspire you to do something that truly makes your little heart sing.
I look forward to another flower date with you sometime in the future xo
