Bad day? No excuse June 22, 2011

As Alyssa shops, she also greets all the people she knows. One individual we met while shopping was Mrs. Memmalink, the school counselor. She told us her favorite “Alyssa story.”

One morning, Alyssa came into school and you could tell from the moment she walked in the door that she was having a bad morning. She stomped in, glaring at everyone she passed.

As she walked by, Mrs. Memmalink said “Good morning, Alyssa!”

Alyssa turned and glared at her. Before stomping off, however, she said in a tone of disgust, “You look very LOVELY today.”

Mrs. Memmalink says it was the best reminder she’s had that no matter how bad a day we may be having, we can always take time to say something nice to others. 🙂
