Without a doubt, what we all will remember from our childhood memories are the moments where our dreams became true. This feeling becomes even deeper for every child when they bravely fight off an illness and realize how strong their inner strength is. Just imagine how special this feeling becomes especially when they see that everything is possible and their wish is finally granted. Artemis is a sweet and determined girl, who knew from the beginning of her wish journey what her wish was. She had a soft spot for Playmobil toys and figurines, so she wished to have as many as possible. The fairies meticulously started working and gathered a large collection of toys that truly allowed her to travel to her new fantasyland. Artemis was very determined and her trip had just started while the fairies planned all sorts of surprises along the way. In the small island located in the Ioannina Lake, which is a fantastic place that fuels one’s imagination, fairies and elves started setting up a big feast. All of her close relatives and dearest friends were invited and her wish journey would end up in a day our girl will always remember.
Artemis danced and sang with her friends and they all very excitingly created their own games. Let’s not forget that everything becomes magical when you are at a dreamy place, with magical surroundings, around games and laughter that truly brings emotions and happiness to a higher level. Many gunny sack games and egg & spoon races took place, where each time a new winner was declared. They all happily played jumping rope and blind man’s buff games. The children continued playing the freeze game, but Artemis’s eyes shined when her eyes saw her treasure. She had a constant smile in her face that was contagious to all of us. “Do you want to know how much I enjoyed my wish? I’ll tell you…as much as the infinity sign which is the number eight laying down!” she told us as she was unwrapping each of her new Playmobil figurines and her sister added “I hope you are all as happy as my sister is today!”
Her wish journey came to its final destination, which was that of childhood and cheerfulness; exactly as Artemis needed. It was a day filled with fun and games…a truly unique experience that she will recall with a big smile in her memory.
