A Little Princess

I remember this movie from when I was growing up. I loved it then and watched it all the time. I saw it on cable today and it was half way into the movie but I started to watch it. I forgot how much I really do love this show. Now that Im older I notice a lot more then I used to and I admit I cried almost every scene. It is the best show with so many good messages, I am going to buy it on dvd. I cant wait to show it to my little girl one day. The theme of the show is so wonderful. Kindness to others, helping those out who need help even when we need help ourselves. Not giving up on the idea of being a Princess and knowing that you are one no matter what or where you come from.

Sara Crewe: Papa? Maya told me that all girls are princesses.
Capt. Crewe: Maya... is a very wise woman.
Sara Crewe: Then it's true?
Capt. Crewe: You can be anything you want to be, my love, as long as you believe.
Sara Crewe: What do you believe?
Capt. Crewe: I believe that you are... and always will be... my little princess.

One of my favorite lines from the show is when Sara is talking to Miss Minchin.
Miss Minchin: Don't tell me you still fancy yourself a princess? Child, look around you! Or better yet, look in the mirror.
Sara Crewe: I am a princess. All girls are. Even if they live in tiny old attics. Even if they dress in rags, even if they aren't pretty, or smart, or young. They're still princesses. All of us.

so thought for today (and lesson I was reminded of myself)
I am a princess, all girls are!
