“I am a princess. All girls are. . .

Image     Even if they live in tiny old attics.  Even if they dress in rags, even if they aren’t pretty, or smart, or young.Image   They’re still princesses.  All of us.”~Frances Hodgson Burnett,  the book and movie “A Little Princess”Image    This is a favorite quote from a favorite movie of mine.  I guess some would feel that this is not the way we should teach our girls to feel about themselves.  I disagree.  If you have seen the movie, you see that the “little princess”, Sarah, is a very strong character.  She is full of courage and fortitude and kindness and love.  All attributes we need more of in our world.  When I shop for beautiful flowers to plant, I always notice ladies looking at the flowers, too.  Trying to decide what to plant.  Trying to pick something to make the world more beautiful.  I think we ladies do have that desire in our hearts for beauty in our world.  We all deserve some pampering from time to time.  Dear friends, I hope you are seeing the beauty of yourself today.

  1. I love the book and movie, too. I agree with you that being a princess isn’t being pampered and spoiled in a way that breeds selfishness. It’s being treated like a child of the King! Yay!
