Gratitude and Optimism
A little boy counts his blessings...
Thank you for my family.
Thank you for my cat.
Thank you for my neighbourhood.
Thank you for sleeping.
Thank you for sideways walking on the balance beam.
My niece won the "Optimism Award" in her Senior Kindergarten class. My brother told me this story as an example of this quality.
Briana was drawing at the kitchen table. Her intention to make a Christmas tree was thwarted when she realized she'd drawn the triangle upside down.
"Oh well, Mommy. It can be an ice cream cone now."
Aw...the glass sure is half full...
