Magical Moment story winner

Submitted by Kristin Deutmeyer

Malea and I have had many a magical moment, most in the discomfort of a hospital room. We have often used "magic" to distract her from the reality of what is happening to her body and the pain that might be a part of that. We have used everything from "magic lotion" (which takes away some of the pain of an IV insertion) to sunglasses that make her "invisible". But the one story that stands out the most in my mind was a day when Malea was feeling exceptionally sick. She had been throwing up and really just did not feel well. I commented that I wished she would feel better and called her "princess" as a term of endearment. She told me how she wished she could be a princess, because "princesses don't get sick" and "live in castles not hospitals". We spent the next 30-40 min talking about what it would be like if she WAS a princess. For those 30-40 min her eyes sparkled and she wasn't a sick little girl in a hospital bed, she was a PRINCESS. And, having her not miserable for that time WAS magical :)
