I am Great

I was standing in a waiting room of a doctor’s office with my parents and my three little boys.  My mom was seeing the doctor.  My dad and I were entertaining the kids.  It had been about an hour when my mom finally came out.  As we stood at the counter waiting to make another appointment, I saw this posted to the wall in the receptionist’s workspace.  It was an 8 1/2 by 11 inch piece of paper that read, “I Am Great” and I read it out loud to my kids and my father.  When the clerk came to her desk I said, “I love that. I really needed to read that today!”  She said she wrote it when her kids were small.  Then she did a remarkable thing.  She took it off the wall and gave it to me.  Thank you Ms. Elizabeth!  Where ever you are!
