Strong, Warm, and Grateful
This story is a part of the "Gratitude" Collection — three stories centered on the theme of gratitude. Each explores the practice and experience of gratitude from a different angle.
In this story:
7-year old Clancy is having a difficult day in which nothing seems to go his way. The Willow Tree takes him to the forests of Siberia where he meets a group of Yakutian Cows who live in very harsh, cold conditions. But do they complain? No, they keep strong and warm by feeling gratitude for what they have.
