The Happiest Little Candy Corn Cookies

This is a story about “The Happiest Little Candy Corn.” You see like all kids, candy corn kids can be different. There was one little candy corn who was always happy no matter what happened. He look at life with a really good attitude. If he was driving down the road and got a flat tire, he would smile and say, “That’s ok because I wanted to try my new jack!” If someone cut in front of him in a check out line he would say, “Go ahead. I am not in a hurry.”

I don’t know why but, I’ve been in a  “the glass is half empty and DIRTY” kinda mood. As I watched my husband walk around with the happy little candy corn attitude it made me realize I needed to get over it! Whatever “it” was is not going to suck the fun out of my day. I don’t want to stress over the little things that I can’t control. I want to look at life and enjoy every situation even if it isn’t perfect.

These little candy corn cookies are a great reminder for me not to be grumpy and complain about the things that don’t matter. Hope you have a happy day;)
