A Little Princess

The other night Jeff and I watched the movie A LITTLE PRINCESS by Warner Bros. On the back of the cover it reads... From the beloved classic by the author of The Secret Garden, A Little Princess has storytelling magic to unlock imaginations and inspire dreams. Sara Crewe (Leisel Matthews) shares a life of wonder in exotic India with her devoted father ( Liam Cunningham). But war draws Sara's father into the military and Sara is sent to a New York boarding school run by the strict Miss Minchin ( Eleanor Bron ), to whom exuberant Sara is a troublemaker. But with courage, imagination and kindness, Sara overcomes her hardships-- and changes her life and the fortunes of those around her. Experience this "jewel of a movie" ( Leonard Maltin ) for anyone who ever wishes or dreams.

If you haven't seen this movie, you ought to take time out to get it and watch it for yourselves. I think it is one of my favorite movies, the most moving line in the whole movie for me, was when she said this...

"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."  ~ Sara Crew

Plus, I love the fact that her Dad is the one that taught that to her, and he was also her HERO...isn't that really what a Dad should be?

Well, it is late and Lee is still very sick. Last night there wasn't much sleeping going on, because he was coughing so much, I hope tonight he can get some rest.

Good night dear friends and don't forget to remember who you really are, I truly think that can make all the difference in what we accomplish in our lives!
