"Boys are found everywhere—on top of, underneath, inside of, climbing on, swinging from, running around or jumping to. Mothers love them, little girls hate them, older sisters and brothers tolerate them, adults ignore them and Heaven protects them. A boy is Truth with dirt on its face, Beauty with a cut on its finger, Wisdom with bubble gum in its hair
and the Hope of the future with a frog in its pocket."

When the dog bites...

When the bee stings,

when I'm feeling sad.

(or confused, bewildered, sad, despondent, defeated and discouraged)

I simply take note of the wonders around me,

Like boys feeding chickens...

and the beauty of an impending thunderstorm...

And then I don't feel....

so bad!
