What I am Reading With My Daughter…

I have been reading aloud this beautiful book to my daughter at bed time for a few days now. With a simple story, an inspiring female lead character and absolutely beautiful prose (I will say this ten times over), this turned out to be a perfect bed time read for both of us. Reading this book feels like drinking that first cup of coffee for the day while watching the sun rise slowly from the horizon. It is energizing, motivating, rewarding, comforting and overall a good nourishment for the soul. I am enjoying this as much as my ten year old ❤️

“It would be easy to be a princess if I was dressed in a cloth of gold. But it is a great deal more of a triumph to be one all the time when no one knows it.”

“If nature has made you for a giver, your hands are born open, and so is your heart; and though there may be times when your hands are empty, your heart is always full, and you can give things out of that – warm things, kind things, sweet things – help and comfort and laughter – and sometimes gay, kind laughter is the best help of all.”
