“Mother, “ announced ten-year-old Pearl one day, “I want to be a princess.”
“I want to wear a royal gown and robe, with rainbows full of sparkles and waterfalls of glittering gold. And of course wear a royal crown, full of glittering jewels, and sleep in a royal bed full of silky things, princess-and-pea style, and have a royal Pom pooch--power black, very small, with a royal ‘tude.”
“I want to ride a royal horse--a white and majestic Lipizzan!”
“I want to go on royal adventures to the beach and the mountains and the forest and the mall and by car and train and plane and bike, and treat my friends to royal feasts, and say, ‘Won’t you come to tea?’
“That’s all. When can I start?”
Her mother dried her hands and bent down to look into the lovely green eyes of her only daughter. She smiled, hugged her Pearl, then said, “Why, you can start today, darling girl. Yes, you can start today to prepare to meet The King.”
Pearl was suddenly a lot excited, but a little nervous also.
“The King?” she said, and wondered.
Her mother raised up, closed her eyes, and smiled, as if she were thinking of something so lovely she could hardly describe it. She was quiet for a moment, then said, “Yes, little Pearl. There can never be a Princess without a King.
One day you will meet Him. Your dad and I will teach you how to be ready. We will teach you how to be true royalty--a Princess of P.O.W.E.R.!”
“A Princess of P.O.W.E.R? Is that different that just a regular princess?”
Her mother nodded, and looked a little serious. “Oh Yes, little Pearl. It’s much better. And we can start teaching you how to be a Princess of Purposeful Operations With Eternal Rewards today!”
