Fairy Tale

Once upon a time there was a young maiden who wanted nothing more in the world than to be a free spirited wife and mother. She felt free because she had already satisfied her hunger for action in her country's army and her hunger for learning medical things  in the best schools. She didn't know how long she would have to work and she hoped she would soon meet the man of her dreams, marry, and have enough children to fill many shoes. And she did.

Many years went by. They were hard times and good times but mostly years of prosperity. One day a terrible thing happened and the young mother became gravely ill. A terrible spell had been put on the woman and everyone feared that she would soon die. The entire town came together, determined to save her. Her husband gathered their friends and family and soon word spread across the world. Many people prayed. The best doctors came to her bedside. No expense was spared. Many months passed and soon she appeared to be getting well again. Before the year was up, people noticed how healthy and strong, the once ill, woman had become. Many thought she was cured. Few people worried that the illness would return.

Until one dark day. The woman didn't feel like herself. With every week and every month that passed, the woman's fears mounted until it was impossible to disagree that the terrible illness that had nearly killed her mere months ago was in full force yet again. Only this time it wasn't quite the same. This time it was hiding in places no one could have guessed. This time no one knew what to do.

The woman went home to wait. All of her friends and family stood vigil at her side. The best doctors came to decide on a spell. But still nobody knew what to do. There were many ideas. Minute to minute. Hour to hour. Day to day. Week to week. Time only seemed to stand still for the woman but really time had sped up... And was spinning out of control. She became so dizzy that she didn't know what to do or say or how to be. The spinning spun her so hard that she soon fell to the ground and couldn't get up.
The end


  1. But the woman, so loved by many was seen by the Almighty. He heard the broken hearts around her. He wished they all knew that she was laying, not on the ground but in His mighty hand where He would hold her through eternity...never to let go, because He created her and new His eternal plans for her.

  2. She fell to the ground and couldn't get up... until her family and friends and spirit guardians from around the world reached out with their strong arms and said, Lean on us. And so she did. She soon felt calm and strong enough to take the next step along her path. And the step after that.
    And from that day on, whenever she felt dizzy, they would reach out to her and say, Lean on us. We've got you. And she knew that wherever her path took her, she was loved and secure and safe.
