GIVE ME PEANUTS.

I LOVE the work of the late Charles Schulz, a Christian and creator of Charlie Brown in the cartoon strip Peanuts. He gives me so many thoughts for the day. One day. Charlie's friend Lucy says: "Sometimes I feel so discouraged." Charlie Brown replies: "Well, Lucy, life does have its ups and downs, you know." However, Lucy hits back with: "But why should it? Why can't my life be all ups? If I want all ups, why can't I have them? Why can't I just move from one up to another up? Or perhaps from a lower up to an upper up? I don't want any downs. I just want ups."

"I can't stand this," mutters Charlie Brown, moving away. Thank you Charles, you help me face the future.
