Everything Is Awesome

(I used to babysit fairly often for a family with two small children, but since I went back to school I haven’t seen them for a few months. Now that it’s summer I meet up with the parents and kids at a local park to hang out and catch up. I’m chatting with the four-year-old boy.)

Me: “So, what is your favorite fruit these days?”

Boy: “Apples!”

Me: “And how about your favorite game?”

Boy: “Jumping!”

Me: “What are your favorite things to do?”

Boy: “You know… my favorite is… everything!” *big smile*

Me: *smiling and laughing* “That is such an awesome way to feel!”

(We could all learn some lessons about happiness and gratitude from this little guy.)
