A Lorax Day

Mother used to tell us that some days are just "terrible, horrible, no good, very bad days - even in Australia." She saved this particular literary allusion for when we were throwing fits. Either that or she'd tell "If you keep acting like Veruca Salt, you'll go down the chute with the goose eggs."

This is what happens when you have a writer for a parent. Especially one with a preoccupation for children's books.

But I have found that along with each day that turns southward, terrible, no good and very bad, we can choose to act more like the Lorax than Veruca Salt.

Go ahead, Pick yourself up by the seat of your pants.
