"A fairy Tale" is truly an apt description of the life I am living. not the Fairy tale of "folkloric fantasy characters, such as dwarfs, dragons, elves, fairies, giants, gnomes, goblins, mermaids, trolls, unicorns, orwitches, and usually magic or enchantments.
the term is also used to describe something blessed with unusual happiness,s, as in "fairy tale ending" (a happy ending).
, a "fairy tale" or "fairy story" can also mean any far-fetched story or tall tale; it is used especially of any story that not only is not true, but could not possibly be true. Legends are perceived as real.
John and I had just returned from an "unreal" trip to Kauai with a stop in Coronado to see family on the return. Need I say, it was phenomenal. The surf was spectacular, the weather perfect, the :"Garden Island" a wealth of colors and lush greenery. I had never been to Hawaii so it was exceptionally special - again, "Make a Wish" material. I am still pinching myself because it does seem so far-fetched. But it was true and I can share some pictures.

Many of you say you admire my bravery and my positive attitude through this blog - and I am here to tell you, the blog MAKES me put on a positive attitude and bolsters my courage because I know I have friends who care.
The Irony cannot be lost, though, as I am living this fairy tale under a very dark cloud. The possibility of this dichotomy of circumstances is such a paradox that it makes my mind spin. The joy of experiences and sharing with my amazing husband, and the sadness that sneaks up on me in the middle of the night... It's one version of a fairy tale when a combination of John and me actually did connect - that in itself is a bit of a miracle - add that to my diagnosis and we are doing our best to make this the happiest of endings.
