choosing to be happy

The central theme of our Rabbi's sermon at Rosh Hashana services the other week was that happiness is something we can choose. Spencer's been a bit more of a handful in the past couple weeks, so I thought I'd give it a try. So far, so good. Now, he decides if he is still sad and wants to cry a little more, and when he finishes he announces "I'm ready to be happy now!" and then he is. I'm not holding my breath that this will last, but I thought it was neat to have learned a parenting trick at temple.
