Why I am going to watch the Royal Wedding!

Once upon a time in a vast land called Texas, a baby girl was born.

She grew up to call three places her home – Texas, California and finally the kingdom of Denver, Colorado. This princess found her prince later in life – she was 33. Princess Robbie and Prince John produced a royal heir when she turned 36. At 45, they adopted a royal puggle and knighted him Sir Scooby, dog of all.

Princess Robbie is a wife, mom, former teacher and current writer/speaker.

But most of all, Princess Robbie is a girl.

And even though she is nearing the half century mark, her heart is young and her dreams vivid and filled with colorful tales of everlasting love and romance.

As a girl, Princess Robbie finds substance in making a pot of coffee and getting up in the wee hours of the night in order to cozy up on the couch with a blanket and Sir Scooby and watch two people declare their love in pageantry and pomp and royal splendor.

Princess Robbie looks forward to admiring the gowns and the hats and the beauty of beauty. She anticipates the joy of watching a real live fairy tale. And even if the reality of the situation reminds her that this royal marriage may end, not in the court of Buckingham but the court of divorce, she still clings to the hope that this may actually be a love story in the making that will inspire others.

Princess Robbie owns no tiara or scepter and she’ll be in her pajamas and not a gown during the festivities.

But Robbie is a girl! And with that honor comes the delight of enjoying the possibility of Sleeping Beauty and Cinderella and Prince Charming come to life.

After the opulence and the grandeur, Princess Robbie will go back to real life and with Jesus as her Lord, live happily ever after!

Loved your post, Robbie.... every little girl wants to be a princess at some time in her life. Glad to hear that your little girl dreams are still alive and well (even though you have already found your prince charming). I remember watching Princess Di's wedding.... and oh, how I loved the pomp and circumstance! Enjoy every moment.

Love your post, Robbie. I too, will be in my PJ's while watching the wedding. :)
Here's to hoping and praying they will last.
