“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.”

-A Little Princess (1995) 

I know this is not from a Disney movie but I still love this quote. 

I’ve had a very happy two days of Galentine’s this year thanks of course to my group of wonderful women but with special thanks to @royalrory, @rosewaterandrain, @restersimple, and @ineptshieldmaid today. 💕💕💕 I’m going to spend the rest of my evening sipping herbal tea, wearing silk pajamas, and alternating between reading A Little Princess and watching Z: The Beginning of Everything.

Review:

A lovely, at some times heartbreaking, tale of a brave girl that caused me to reflect upon myself and taught me some important lessons. A Little Princess is a classic that is still incredibly relevant nowadays. It’s a book everyone should read in  their lifetime.

I remember when I first read the children’s version of this book. I was in preschool and our teacher would let us take home a book I can’t remember why but I do remember I was able to pick mine first and immediately I picked it. Mostly because I always loved princesses and believed I was one too. I was too young to really understand it but I loved it. It was my favorite I would make my mom read it to me every night over and over again.

I wish I knew what happened to it but as I grew older I forgot what it was even called. Fast forward several years later - I was older and in a very bad place in my life that I ended up in the hospital. I tried ending my life because I just wanted to be happy. When I was in the hospital I had to have someone stay in the room with me and rotate between people. Some we’re very boring , or mean. Not all we’re that way but one stuck out the most. Her name was Janice and she was the youngest out of every one of them. She treated me like a person not just a patient. I started eating again and drawing because she brought me a sketch pad and some colored pencils bc she knew how much I liked drawing but stopped for a long time. I can’t remember what day but we went to the room where the sick kids would color and play with play dough, the books and movies and stuff we’re there too. When I looked through the bookself oddly enough I found it. I had never read the real book and I was so excited to finally read it. I found out I was being transported to a different hospital in the middle of the night and I was going to be alone there. I was scared and sad because I was never going to be able to finish it. She wasn’t supposed to, but she let me keep it and brought me this sock monkey with a bow on it’s head too. Wasn’t supposed to give me that either. She also gave me her number to contact her when I did get out, unfortunately when I was at the other hospital I lost it.

I read the entire thing when I was gone. And again when I got out and was home for good. And now after years, I found it again at a thrift shop a couple days ago.

I don’t like to believe in things, but I believe that this book finds it way to be when I need it the most and no one can ever tell me that books are just paper and ink. It’s much more than that to me and if you don’t know what the book is about I suggest you look into it because it makes me want to believe in happy endings
