The second of The Cottage Tales of Beatrix Potter by Albert. It is as delightful as the first...light and fun.
Here's the wisdom I gleaned from it...stop worrying and quit fearing the worst and every day will be a beautiful day!
"The breakfast table was always crowded with a great many animals....They were all at their best in the morning, rested and full of exuberant energy and interesting plans for the day ahead---always a wonderful day, because animals rarely worry or imagine the worst of what is to come, as people do. They were generally planning a picnic, or a foraging expedition, or the pleasant completion of chores, or just loafing on a quiet riverbank, listening to the whispering water and whistling birds and watching butterflies whirl through the transparent air."
Oh, to be an animal...The big question is: What kind of animal would I be?
