Some Comic Relief from Dr. Seuss~This afternoon my 7 year old grandson asked me to read a book I got him over three years ago. Its called: Did I Ever Tell You How Lucky You Are? by Dr. Seuss. Here are a few funny and wise excerpts from it from me to you.
When I was quite young and quite small for my size, I met an old man in the Desert of Drize. And he sang me a song I will never forget. At least, well, I haven’t forgotten it yet.
He sat in a terribly prickly place. But he sang with a sunny sweet smile on his face: When you think things are bad, when you feel sour and blue, When you start to get mad…you should do what I do!
Just tell yourself, Duckie, you’re really quite lucky! Some people are much more… oh ever so much more… Oh, muchly much-much more Unlucky than you!
It’s a troublesome world. All the people who’re in it Are troubled with troubles almost every minute. You ought to be thankful, a whole heaping lot, For the places and people you’re not!
Great way to go into the New Year with Gratitude and Mercy…
