Receive God's Warm Love Through Reflection

Don’t make days your worries

on March 13, 2013

Today I read to a kindergartner the book, 100th Day Worries, by Margery Cuyler and Arthur Howard. Amazon.com lists this description about the book:

“When Jessica’s teacher tells everyone in class to find 100 things to bring to school for their 100th day, Jessica starts to worry. She wants to bring something really good. but what?

100 marshmallows? No, too sticky.

100 yo-yos? Nah, that’s silly.

When Jessica reaches the 99th day, she really starts to worry. She still doesn’t know what to bring! Could the best collection of 100 things be right under her eyes?

This book is for all the small worrywarts out there, the ones who fret over losing their first tooth, missing the school bus, or getting their math homework right. Jessica’s ingenious solution incorporates the ideas and, most important, the love from her family.”

Guilty myself of being a worrier, the title caught my attention, but so did the entire book and illustrations! It was good for educating the student on numbers and counting. Most importantly, the book’s message really made me appreciate the book. The girl worries and worries but in the end her family supports her and she ends up having the best “100 things” in the class. Her teacher calls it “100 bits of love” because her family was willing to give little bits of what they collected or found in the house all because of the love they had for her! They loved her and supported her.

Take home message – we shouldn’t worry about the little things in life, for we are loved and appreciated and all will turn out well. We may be uncertain with things in our life, but we should trust in God, have confidence in ourselves, and embrace whatever comes in our lives. Also, bring love to your friends and family; you’ll make them smile and shine in their daily life no matter if it’s the little things!
