A Gentle Perspective



I picked this book up at the library today...I'm such a sucker for smaller-than-normal, easy-to-read feel-good books...like this one.

"The World According to Mister Rogers: Imporatant Things to Remember" by Fred Rogers.

This book should sit on every bookshelf in America.

One of my favorite statements from the book, so far:

"The real issue in life is not how many blessings we have, but what we do with our blessings. Some people have many blessings and hoard them. Some have few and give everything away."

Go ahead...just try to see that simple sweater and not hum that song..."It's a beautiful day in the neighborhood..."

Happy Tuesday.

Makes me wish he'd been my real neighbor. His was the one show I would sit down to watch with my little ones; it was very soothing.
