Today is Princess's birthday. She is 17 years old. It's hard to believe she has grown up so quickly; she's hardly a child anymore. She is such an amazing girl! Even though I knew she really wanted to have her birthday party on her actual birthday, she agreed to have it on Sunday because today is Pack Meeting.
Since my sweetie is the Cubmaster and Dog Walker is the Assistant Cubmaster, Pack Meeting pretty much trumps everything, even birthdays. Oh, she never complained. She rarely does. She smiled her sweet smile and agreed to whatever we asked her to do. She even wanted to decorate her own cake!
So a couple of days ago we had her party. She is always so gracious and grateful with each and every gift. She loved the Tupperware cupcake takers I got for her and the new lunch box. She also got a new outfit and some books and ponytail holders. She greeted the stuff from the dollar store with the same enthusiasm she gave the expensive Tupperware items. They were all the best gifts she had ever been given.
She is definitely a jewel. She is almost too good to be true; an excellent student, very spiritual, modest, obedient... trustworthy, loyal, helpful, friendly, courteous, kind, obedient, cheerful, thrifty, brave, clean, and reverent... well, maybe she's not that brave. She is afraid to fly.
I'm guessing you recognized the scout law? Yeah, I'm in Pack Meeting mode. But that doesn't mean I'm not grateful for Princess. She is definitely one of the best gifts I've ever been given.
Happy Birthday, Princess!
