A Hospital Gown with a Motivating Message

Whether you’re in the hospital facing a health crisis, or just dealing with an everyday challenge, this children’s story serves as a good reminder: one day at a time, one step at a time.

I Think I Can Hospital Gown design“I’m not very big,” said the Little Blue Engine. “They use me only for switching trains in the yard. I have never been over the mountain.” “But we must get over the mountain before the children awake,” said all the dolls and the toys.

The very little engine looked up and saw the tears in the dolls’ eyes. And she thought of the good little boys and girls on the other side of the mountain who would not have any toys or good food unless she helped.

Then she said, “I think I can. I think I can. I think I can.” And she hitched herself to the little train.

She tugged and pulled and pulled and tugged and slowly, slowly, slowly they started off.
The toy clown jumped aboard the all the dolls and the toy animals began to smile and cheer.

Puff, puff, chug, chug, went the Little Blue Engine. “I think I can – I think I can – I think I can – I think I can-I think I can-I think I can- I think I can-I think I can.”

Up, up, up. Faster and faster and faster and faster the little engine climbed, until at last they reached the top of the mountain.

In 1966 a lie detector expert named Cleve Backster decided to see how a plant might react to his polygraph machine.  After attaching the electrodes to the plant’s leaves, he watched for responses when he added water to the plant.  When he received no remarkable response, he immersed the leaves in coffee.  Still, there was no marked response on the polygraph.  He then considered what would cause an immediate, dramatic reaction in the plant?  It would have to be something that was life threatening.  Fire!  Read more »
