Last week, I celebrated another birthday. True to form, I wasn’t able to celebrate on my birthday, but I was able to celebrate a week later, this past Saturday.
But the best part was on Sunday when I went to church. As I went to wish a 103-year-old Holocaust survivor by the name of Pearl a happy birthday, she called me a princess. I was not wearing a crown at the time. I couldn’t help but smile from ear to ear.
