Our grandson, Kenny Prather, who is now a resident of Kenai, Alaska, has always had a positive outlook on life. No matter whether his pickup truck breaks down, he has to drive to work on slick roads, he doesn’t feel well, or a hundred other scenarios, he always says, “It’s all good.” So I was reminded of him when I read this week’s book. The leading character in the book thinks “It’s all good,” too.
