{Squirrel Lessons}

Tonight, after the Mister taught a Family Home Evening lesson on how to be reverent when we pray {Squirrel is often up to her usual tricks at bedtime prayers--usually jumping on the bed, or whacking one of us with something, or standing on her head, etc}, Squirrel decided to regale us with some wisdom of her own. She informed us that she needed to "tell a lesson" as well. Here's what we learned:

When you feel sad, take a deeeeep breath {insert Squirrel elegantly raising her 
arms while inhaling} and just be happy. 

Also: When you feel sad, pick some flowers {at which she used 
my floral print shirt to mime the act}, smell them, and be happy. 

After you pick the flowers, you can pick a tree's leaves 
and smell them and be happy. 

Then, get some tape and put the flowers and the leaves back 
in the grass and the trees. 

{Is she smart or what? Self-help AND conservation in one lesson.}



  1. Children are so very wise sometimes. Loved squirrel's lesson!

  2. What a sweet little girl! This had me smiling :) I'll try to remember her words of wisdom next time I feel sad.

  3. This is totally Ms. A in a year or two. She is so much like you were :)

  4. Oh, dear! That is HILARIOUS! Honestly...I think that might be her in a couple of months!

  5. I love this! Thanks for sharing!
