The beginning of fairies September 29, 2010

You see, Wendy, when the first baby laughed for the first time, its laugh broke into a thousand pieces, and they all went skipping about, and that was the beginning of fairies. (from Peter Pan by J.M. Barrie)

I went to a baby shower today. It made me think of this quote. I don’t know if there’s any better sound than the sound of a laughing baby. It makes you believe in things. When Benjamin was an infant, he would sometimes stare somewhere behind us and laugh out loud like something invisible was entertaining him. Maybe it was fairies. I think it was an angel. šŸ™‚

    I think it was an angel as well. My mom saw an angel on several different occasions before she passed away. One day very near the end, she told my dad the room was full of angels. They were very comforting to her.

    I love this quote from Peter Pan. What a marvelous visual ā™„
