And He's Still Gleeful
The definition of gleeful is: full of high-spirited delight; "a joyful heart". It's also happens to be the word my son misspelled this morning to eliminate him from his spelling bee, which also happened to be his very first word. He placed 27th of 30 kids. I've always told him that we win some and we lose some so we made a few jokes and had a little laugh about it and moved on and right now he is gleefully shooting basketball in the yard. Life it hard no matter what your circumstances are and it's important that my son knows things are not always going to go his way and he might as well be happy (or gleeful) with what he has been given.
