This week LSS is celebrating Dr. Seuss! Just like many kids across the country, we are paying special attention to the great messages that come from his collection of books! Today, Adoption and Foster Care Programs will feature the classic Marvin K. Mooney Will You PLEASE GO NOW!
Growing up, Dr. Suess was one of my very favorite authors. So when I had kids I quickly introduced them to his wonderful books. One of our all time favorites is Marvin K. Mooney Will you PLEASE GO NOW! Whenever I wanted my girls to get something done I would tell them please go now – just like Marvin K. Mooney! And miraculously they did AND they did it with a smile.
Dr. Suess seems to make the impossible seem possible and to encourage us to creatively reach for our dreams. Whoever heard of a Crunk-Car, Zike-Bike or Zumble-Zay? But with Dr. Suess they really do become vehicles to carry that pesky Marvin K. Mooney away! If that doesn’t work he really can go by lion’s tail or stamp himself and go by mail!
I encourage you to think about dreams you have and to creatively do what seems to be impossible – just like Dr. Suess. Hey, maybe that is becoming a foster family to a child who needs a family. Or maybe it is adopting a child from another country. They may be dreams now – but be like Marvin K. Mooney – GO NOW. Reach for your dreams! You can take a Ga-Zoom and go with out with a BOOM!
