august days :: three

I had a box of crayons,
All shiny, straight and new.
I lent a friend one crayon,
And -- oops -- it broke in two!

My friend said she was sorry,
But I said, "I don't care,
'Cause now we both can color
With one crayon -- we can share!"

I can't remember where this little rhyme came from, but I love the way it expresses turning a negative into a positive. It's a remnant of working with children and is floating around in my thoughts today. Celebrate and honor your friends, this day of International Friendship.

I'll have to save that poem for the next time the girl-child breaks one of her brother's crayons. ;-) WW3, I tell ya.

I like the kitty picture, too.
