Sacred in the Ordinary - The Princess

I am tempted to search for the extraordinary. I catch myself longing for the incredible. I fight the urge to notice the spectacular. In doing so, I risk missing the most extraordinary, incredible and spectacular of all... the sacred in the ordinary.

My Moment...

Last week my daughter went Trick-R-Treating as Belle from Beauty and the Beast. My Grandmother made the costume. To many it may have been a simple costume, but it was made with love for Our Princess. My grandmother painstakingly dealt with the Tulle (those of you who sew will know how difficult that is). She even lined the inside of the dress.

One of our friends exclaimed that the dress was good enough to wear to a wedding. When I mentioned this to my Grandmother, she informed me that "Nothing was too good for her Granddaughter!" I felt the love and pride in her voice and not in regards to the costume, but in that little girl who is truly a "Princess" in our eyes.

A moment to cherish indeed. How very special your little girl must have felt to wear such a beautiful thing for such an event!

THANK YOU for posting your own sacred in the ordinary post! Maybe next week I should add Mr. Linky to make it easier for more people to participate! ;-) Make it a full fledged official blog carnival. What do you think?

Again, a beautiful moment to stop and notice...

She was BEAUTIFUL! What a lucky girl to have a grandma who is willing to take such time and effort for such a beautiful Halloween costume. My mom sews but doesn't have much time to do it anymore. Any girl should feel extra special to have a costume made just for her!
