Life Is A Gift

These two songs inspire me overtime I hear them. At first I Lived made me sad, but then I realized that I shouldn’t be. God gave us life as a gift. We may not know what we are supposed to do in this world, but I know at least one thing: we were created for a purpose. What that purpose is, I don’t know. That is for us to figure out. 

I hope these songs inspire you just as much as they inspire me.

The Gift – A Short Story by Me

It was a cold, stormy day in Frey, the mystical land only for fairies, just off the coast of the Scottish Highlands, and Annabelle had just received some terribly disappointing news. A sweet and kind fairy with long dark brown hair, Annabelle also had a short temper, but was a kindhearted person once you got to know her. Ten years ago, Annabelle had given a child named Olivia McKenzie, who lived in Scotland, the gift of obedience. On this particular day, in the month of March, Annabelle had just been enjoying a nice, hot mug of tea, when she received a letter from Olivia asking her to withdraw her gift. She knew this could not be done, and she felt rather insulted that the child had even asked. Annabelle hadn’t known, but Olivia also sent a copy of the letter to the fairy commission:

To: Annabelle, The Gift Giver
BCC: Fairy Commission
Dear Annabelle,
My friends recently made me jump off of a cliff into the water and I hit my leg on a sharp rock. I had to go to the hospital and get 50 stitches. I had to jump of the cliff because of the “gift” YOU gave me of obedience. I hope you have a way of taking back this “gift”.
The cursed child,
Olivia McKenzie

Once the fairy commission read the letter, they promptly assigned two under cover agents outside Annabelle’s home to carefully watch her.

Annabelle was so heart-broken and angry that she abandoned her lovely home in the fir tree, the tallest one in the forest, just outside of Lille, the capital of Frey. She took up residence in an old, dilapidated beehive near the town of Pivot, which was as far away as she could get from Lille. After the horrible day that she received Olivia’s letter, Annabelle vowed that she would never, ever, give another child any gift.

Annabelle decided to try something new. She devised a plan to cast a curse on a Scottish girl named Alissa. Alissa was a two year old girl who was a lively, good-natured person, and almost always happy and joyful. This curse would make the girl see the blessings of everyday life. These blessings were only the bad things that happen in life, and Annabelle wished to make the child live in misery. Annabelle’s short temper caused her to wish for Alissa to have as much pain in her life, such as was in Annabelle’s. A week later, Annabelle brought her plan to life. The fairy commission had discovered that Annabelle was planning to cast a curse on a child. Unfortunately, they did not know when or where. They had found out this part of the plan from their under cover agents who were staked out outside of Annabelle’s house. They requested their most beneficent fairy to stop Annabelle; her name was Emily.

Emily was a considerate, benevolent, lovely fairy with long blond hair and a tall figure. Emily was delighted that she received another momentous mission, but she was not delighted by Annabelle’s plan. Two days later, Emily went to Annabelle’s beehive in Pivot and knocked on the door. As soon as Annabelle heard the knock, she rapidly gathered as much food and clothing as she could, but Emily busted down the door. In all of the commotion, Annabelle had left behind her plans on her desk. Once Emily entered, she found all of Annabelle’s plans and wondered why Annabelle had left them behind. At first, Emily believed that she left these so Emily would go to the wrong place at the wrong time. But after Emily had sifted through the plans, she found that the curse was to be cast that night, and had a very strong feeling that this was not a bluff. Annabelle planned on casting the curse on a child in Edinburgh, so Emily headed there immediately.

That night, as Annabelle was standing over the child that she would soon curse, Emily appeared and asked her in a silvery voice, “Why must you do this, Annabelle?”
“Because the child needs to see the blessings of everyday life,” Annabelle replied in a calm voice.
“Making the child live in misery is not making the her realize the blessings of life,” Emily replied.
“It does not matter; nothing will stop me,” Annabelle said in a fierce tone.
“Don’t cast the curse on the child! Cast it on me instead!” Emily pleaded.
“Maybe you are right. Maybe I should cast the curse on you, too,” Annabelle replied with vengeance.
“No! Spare the child! Please!” Emily cried out.
Annabelle started to cry because she realized the truth: that she would not serve her purpose as a fairy, of giving children happy and care-free lives, if she was busy cursing them.
“What have I done? How could I be so blind?” Annabelle said, dropping to the floor, crying.
“Come with me, Annabelle. you can be good once more.” Emily insisted.
Annabelle sniffled, wiping her tears, “Thank you Emily! You are a true friend.”

A week later Annabelle was once again bestowing magnificent gifts to children, except now she was working with Emily. She also went back to her lovely home in the fir tree, the tallest one in the forest. After a few days, Emily received an award for her outstanding bravery, and Annabelle received a medal for her new found association and friendship inside the fairy commission. Since fairies never die, Emily and Annabelle worked side by side forever.
