The Strength of Princesses

This blog is primarily dedicated to the book my sister and I have written that will come out in March, but I would like to take a moment and talk about how strong real life Princesses can be and how happy I am to be able to write about them.

My 10 year old daughter, started complaining last week about blurred vision and woke up one day to black spots in her vision. We took her to a retina specialist and were informed that she had some very serious swelling on the nerve around her eye. My husband and I sat in the Dr's office and listened to some possibilities for this, and heard words like tumor and Multiple Sclerosis.

Through this ordeal here are some examples of  the strength I saw in my Princess:

1. I watched as she submitted herself to a spinal tap, fully awake and did not cry out. Only the tears streaming down her face showed the amount of pain she was undergoing.

2. Treatment after painful treatment she would smile at the nurses and doctors.

I watched other little Princesses in the pediatrics ward and saw their smiles, courage, strength and a determined desire to be happy.

True Princesses come in all ages and sizes. They are Princesses not because they were born in a castle to royal parents, but because ALL little girls have infinite worth and make this world a better place to live in.

Our diagnosis for her looks good and for that we are grateful.

If you have a Princess in your life, hug her extra tight and make sure she knows just how special she is.
