That little princess I'll never forget...

      A few years ago I was working in the France pavilion at Epcot. A man walked by me carrying his daughter who I guessed to be around the age of  4. He was clearly not happy with her and had no filter on his mouth even in a family friendly park. As he was walking her shoe fell off and she began to cry. He had no idea what happened but her tears set him off even more. I quickly scooped up the shoe and chased after them, "Princess, princess you lost your shoe." Dad stopped in his tracks and set her down. I put on her shoe and told her that she was too young to be trying to attract a prince just yet. Her father scoffed at me and said "she's no princess." Never taking my gaze off his daughter I reassured her, "You'll always be a princess." 

She'd be in school now, probably about a third grader. I think of her from time to time and pray that she remembers what I told her that day. 

This memory was provoked by a pin I saw on pinterest that is worth sharing.
I hope that little girl knows how much her heavenly father loves her. And when she is old enough considers this...
