THIS WEEK’S REVIEW:  “Jette Black and Her Seven Friends”

Kortnie Carter of Los Angeles, California, says, “Jette Black and Her Seven Friends is an excellent story because it lets children know that they don’t have to be ashamed or try to hide who they are just because they might be tall, overweight, or because of their ethnic background. They can grow up to be what they want to be.  And not let other people get in their way of getting a good education. Very Inspiring!!!!”

Here’s another great piece that my cousin, Patricia Eddings, sent me.  I thought it was meaningful AND hilarious.  Let me know what you think.


Fable of the Porcupines

It was the coldest winter ever.  Many animals died because of the cold.

The porcupines, realizing the situation, decided to group together.  They were covered and protected, but the quills of each wounded the closest companion.

After a while, they decided to distance themselves, and they began to die, alone and frozen.

So they had to make a choice:  either accept the quills of their companions or disappear from the Earth.  Wisely, they decided to go back to being together.

They learned to live with the little wounds that were caused by their close relationships because the most important part was the heat that came from the others.  They were able to survive.

Moral #1

The best relationship is not the one that brings together perfect people, but the one that forms when individuals learn to live with the imperfections and admire the good qualities of others.

Moral #2 

LEARN TO LOVE THE PRICKS IN YOUR LIFE.
