Oh, the Places You'll Go!

It is Tuesday. It's been one of the best Tuesdays I've had in a while! Why? I don't know.. I think I just chose it. :) On my way home, I stopped at  Barnes and Noble. It's one of my favorite places. I strolled through the store and found myself reading Oh the Places You'll Go! by Dr. Seuss. It's an amazing book; truly, one of my favorites.The book is honest, and doesn't set us up for failure. It lets you know that you can choose where you want to go, and that hard times will come, and there will be scary times, but you can still move mountains.


The end of the story reads,


Kid, you’ll move mountains!
So…be your name Buxbaum or Bixby or Bray or Mordecai Ale Van Allen O’Shea, you’re off to Great Places!
Today is your day!
Your mountain is waiting.
So…get on your way!

Let us move mountains with Dr. Seuss, shall we?
