The Happy Mind Of A Six-Year-Old

We have a rule in our house "There is always time for a hug". I would like to think that rule makes a difference, it's a concrete rule in our home, and one I have to be reminded of from time to time. Anyway...before bedtime tonight, my six-year-old expressed the wish that every day could be a perfect day. I asked what would make a perfect day. Here, in the words of a six-year-old, is the answer.

"I wish every day could be a perfect day. All butterfllies, some rain for rainbows, no telling, no fighting, no bad words, no throwing, be nice to everybody, play with friends that no one else will play with, do fun things with everybody, do nice things even for people you don't like because they are probably nice in some way, give your friends nice letters, play together, give your friends presents, and pay them back, play at the park, plan fun things for the whole class, let your friends come over to your house, share your books, watch movies togehter, let people watch your movies with you, make things with your friends, helping people, making hearts, coloring and drawing for people, make them happy, share toys with your friends, spread nice things around the world, and make the world a better place."

I couldn't put it better if I tried.
