Oh the Places You'll Go!

So I try to read to the kids every night (sometimes we miss) and Tyson found a book that Des gave to me when I graduated from High School. I hadn't read this book in years- like over a decade. "Oh the Places You'll Go" by Doctor Suess. As I was reading it to Tyson I was having a hard time not crying. It hit me so hard- the words I was reading and what a great book it is about life. I know this sounds so crazy (it is Dr Suess) but it was exactly what I needed to read today. It's about life experiences and choosing your way, messing up, getting confused, failing, starting over, being alone and left behind. It's also about getting up- keep going, moving mountains.

"I'm afraid that some times
you'll play lonely games too.
Games you can't win
'cause you'll play against you."

"Remember that Life's a Great Balancing Act."

I could go on and on with the quotes- I can't believe how long it has been since I have read this amazing book.

"Today is your day! Your mountain is waiting.
So..... get on your way!"

and I think that last line should read- "So, get out of your way"

Thanks Tyson- I needed this!
