My "stranded" day turned out to be much better than I had anticipated. My daughter had gone off to a play date with a friend so it was just me and Luke. My plan was to stay at home and do laundry, instead Luke and I decided to walk up to one of the local strip malls, not on the freeway, of course. As we were walking we had great conversation, about school, movies and some random comments like: Mom, would you want to live in a pink house? Of course, I looked around to see which pink house he was speaking of, but there was no pink house. So I asked where that question came from. He answered, Just wondering. Interesting what goes on in the brain of a 10 year old. With that thought in mind I asked Luke what he thought about me loosing my license. It gives us a good opportunity to get some exercise. Was his first answer. I was suprised at this to say the least. My mind goes to the negative first, and his mind went to the positive. He continued on by saying that he thinks we should do this all the time, even when I can drive again. If it is not too far, that is.
That makes me wonder...Is negativity a learned trait, or are we born with it?
