I Hope Her Prince Comes Quickly

The weather is gorgeous today and I have the all the windows open to better enjoy the fresh air, scent an sight of roses so close I could touch them, and singing birds, as I work.

About ten minutes ago, the little girl next door starting singing at the top of her lungs, “SOMEDAY MY PRINCE WILL COME!” Not the whole song, just that one line. Over and over and over and over again. At first it made me smile and brought up many fun memories of my children having done the same thing and my grandchildren still doing it.

Every few minutes the little girl’s mother claps enthusiastically, which inspires her to attempt to belt it out even louder.

After several minutes of the repetition my smile began to fade as I attempted to concentrate on what I was doing. Then I became tempted to yell, “Your prince is on his way!” but there is no way I’m going to spoil the moment for the little girl and her mother.

I do hope her prince comes quickly.

With Love,

    it would be an act of community service if he shows up sooner rather than later )

  2. Hahahaha! I love it! Reminds me of when I stood on a tree stump scream singing “Oh When The Saints Come Marching In” and I kept looking down the field to see the saints. Finally one of my brothers came out and said “dad said to shut up!” Dad never said “shut up” so I’m fairly certain my brother paraphrased that! 🙂

  3. I say it’s a phase. let itself burn itself out. I see it as a right of passage. The louder the character, the more put-together the adult in future. 😀

  4. Oh that made me laugh Russ!!! I can totally imagine! You have a super, extra wonderful day my dear friend and builder of divine kingdoms. Sharon
