Open Sesame!

She was enchanted when she heard the story "Alibaba and Forty Thieves" from the Arabian Nights, especially the magic words "Open Sesame!" that opened the door to the cave with the treasures. 

She had totally fallen head over heels in love with all what she read and was so crazily lost in the world of books and their characters that she sincerely believed that such magic can happen in real life too.

When many asked her to 'clean her head', mocked at her and 'Laughed Out Loud' (LOL), she interpreted LOL as 'Lots of Love'!

Those people didn't see her entering into unthinkable and forbidden places using seemingly irrelevant magical passwords like 'Open Sesame!'

As she believed in love and miracles, she found many doors and windows easily opened up to welcome her limitless imagination and creativity!

I agree with the quote- "Those who don't believe in miracles will never find them."
Do you believe in love and miracles?

“Where there is great love, there are always miracles.”

  1. There's so much warmth and reassurance in "Those who don't believe in miracles will never find them", for it makes you want to believe. Cynicism pushes back such faith on most days, but every once in a while, I think it's worthwhile to just hope, expect or believe in magic. :)
