Pop Sickles - Cherry, Grape or Orange

Custom Rental Management - Tuesday, October 26, 2021

I never dreamed I would learn a life lesson the day I picked my granddaughter up from day care.  It was the end of the day and the worker told the children they would receive a treat while they waited for their parents to arrive.  

The worker produced a variety box of pop sickles. Immediately the children began to cry out "I only want cherry."  Or "I only want grape."  The worker asked the children "Now, what is it that we say?"  The 5 children lined up, placing their hands to their side in unison and cried out in one voice "You get what you get and you don't throw a fit."  The pop sickles were handed out and there were no more complaints or murmurs from the children.

I have thought back to that afternoon many times when things don't go the way I planned.

May YOUR day be filled with delicious pop sickles whether cherry, grape or orange.
