What story

Mondays word on my gratitude journey is what story.

I pick one from my childhood, one  I loved to read and still do with my grandson.  It’s “Brighty of the Grand Canyon” by Marguerite Henry.

If you have never read it you are missing out on a story of a prospector befriending a wild burro showing that friendship can come in all types.

It leads you on the adventures of the Grand Canyon in a time of explorers and freespirits. You will find it teaches you that you can enjoy someone without changing them but instead accepting them is what makes the sweetest of friendship. That love and friendship offer such a beautiful blessing and is so worth it even with the heartache of loss.

I am grateful to have read this book. It will always be one of my all time favorites.

One thought on “What story

  1. One of my favorite books is about an animal too, Black Beauty. Grandpa bought the book for me when I was about 8. I read that thing many many times. I enjoyed what said about friendships with animals. Being friends with someone different than you is very important wisdom to learn as a child.
