Today's guest shared treasures and thoughts with us earlier this year but today he returns with a peek into his book, Happiness: A Lesson with Lulu so please give Robert Jones a big, WARM welcome cause baby it's cold outside!
Happiness, the first book in the Lessons with Lulu series, is an attempt to communicate the importance of an open heart and mind. In the story, Lulu surveys the happenings in an amusement park with her father, identifying many ways to be happy. As the day comes to a close, she discovers the most important of all: finding this heart in herself.
“How do you get rid of bad feelings?” asked Lulu.
“Don't worry about any of your feelings,” answered Lulu's daddy. “They are part of life. When you're hurt, it is okay to be hurt. When you're sad or angry, it is okay to be sad or angry. All feelings that spring up also fade away. When you let them go, you'll be able to see clearly and find the right thing to do. Your special light will shine.”
Lulu gave her daddy a hug.
“Was that the right thing to do?” she asked.
“Well, I’m feeling happy,” her daddy replied. “Are you?”
Robert Jones, like most parents, is a developing storyteller. He reads to his daughters nightly (and whenever they ask) and draws on analogies to explain complex ideas. He has also learned to improvise silly characters in even sillier situations to wrest his children from otherwise inconsolable moods. His stories are becoming books because of the insistence of his children that Lulu be brought to life. While he wishes he could spend his days engaged in such important endeavors, he supports his family by working as a general manager for an eCommerce company.
Happiness: A Lesson with Lulu by Robert Jones is available through Healthy Life Press, amazon.com, at wholesale to booksellers at Ingramcontent.com/retailers and wherever good books are sold.
