The wine fairy
Thursday, May 09, 2013
Once upon a time, not so long ago, there was a fair maiden who was tired and low because day in and day out, all those she loved and cared for did not say thank you as much as they should... and the humdrum monotony of life was starting to take its toll.
Distraught, she turned to the her mystical online friends and typed in her plight...that all she wanted was a hug and a nice glass of wine.
Little known to her, a friend saw her need and grabbed a bottle of wine out of her cupboard, plopped it in a pretty bag and literally, within minutes, was ringing the fair maiden's doorbell to deliver the wine and give her a hug!
The wine fairy was born
Yesterday...I did just what the fair maiden in the story did...and all I typed in was:
"Wine. Need. Badly"
The fair maiden took her turn and was the wine fairy for me yesterday.
This "wine fairy" has sort of become a little running joke in our elementary school/facebook community...there are many out there now since the wine fairy was brought into light because of a few (I am happy to be one of those few).
Maybe you can be a "wine fairy" to someone in your community.
Honestly...the key to being a good wine fairy is to first listen, then act randomly...because when it is most needed and least expected, that is when it means the most.
Pay it forward....and make someone smile
