a floating pearl

"You get what you get, and you don't get upset," said the little boy to the other little boy before they both received star shaped stickers as kudos for their accomplishments at soccer camp that day.
Some kids received more than others but in the end, they all went home happy, amazingly without complaints, and proud for having rounded up all the soccer balls into three tiny goals making the clean up for their coaches minimal.
For the rest of the day I heard this child's well-taught mantra and think that for this week in particular, that is a good one to live by.
