“I Know Something Good About You”

This was from one of my son’s lessons in school which the teacher has asked them to memorize.  I just think it’s nice, a good reminder for all of us, and even a great few lines to teach your own kids too.

Wouldn’t this old world be better? If the folks we meet would say. “I know something good about you’’ and then treat us just that way?

Wouldn’t it be fine and dandy if each handclap warm and true carried with this assurance I know something good about you.

Wouldn’t life be lots more happy if the good that’s in us all is the only thing about us that folks bothered to recall

Wouldn’t life be lots more happy? If we praised the good we see for there’s such a lot of goodness in the worst of you and me.

Wouldn’t it be nice to practice that fine way of thinking too? You know something good about me! I know something good about you.

The lesson according to my son: Appreciate the good that others do to you.
