Some days are more difficult than others. You might lose your keys, get gum on your shoe, miss the bus, or get a parking ticket. When frustrating, annoying or difficult things happen, we can choose to be upset, or we can let it roll off our shoulder, face the day ahead and choose to say “It’s all good.” On today’s episode of the Apple Seed you’ll get to hear a story about that very principle. It's a story by Andy Offutt Irwin about a boy who faces trouble, but chooses to fix the problem and say “It’s all good.” We’ve got lots of other great stories for you today as well, like “Tia Astucia,” the story of a shrewd and clever woman by Milbre Burch. You’ll also hear “A Refuge from Suburbia” by Susan Strauss, a story from her childhood about her first bee sting. Finally you’ll hear Kevin Kling tell the story of his Dad’s first trip overseas in “Dad’s Trip to Europe.” You won’t want to miss a word!
