I was reading the Little Engine That Could to my son, Daniel (it’s one of his favorite books). It's a classic children's story from the 1930's, but in case you’ve never heard of it, or you don’t remember, here’s the story: - There was once a little train filled with toys on its way to kids on the other side of the mountain. - The train broke down. It asked the Shiny New Engine, the Big Engine, and the Rusty Old Engine for help. All of them said no with different excuses. - Then comes the Little Blue Engine - the smallest of them all, who responds "I think I can. I think I can!" She tugged and pulled as hard as she could, always telling herself she could do it, until she finally made it. Toys delivered, mission accomplished!
