Life isn't always perfect, it depends on what you do with it. This morning I got an e-mail from Roy．It seems that my boy really enjoys __26__new life at Harvard University．
The e-mail made me think of the first day when we moved into this house. Little Roy ran around the new house with great excitement(兴奋) and __27__ to move his own things into the house such as his toys，books and clothes. __28__，his little hand knocked over（打翻）a bottle of paint(油漆) on the shelf．The paint made the clean floor and white wall a terrible mess. “Oh，my God!” My wife put up her hands in the air __29__．I looked at my son. He was so nervous that he lowered(降下) his head and was __30__looking at his mother．
At once, I stopped my wife with my eyes. Then I __31__and held my son’s hand，“Take it easy，Roy．Now let’s do something to make it look __32__.” I said. “You see，Dad is a superman, we can draw something here.” And then I took out a __33__ . But what can we draw?"
“A __34__,” Roy shouted. After a while, as soon as Roy saw it, he asked to paint it green. “A tree is not enough. Let’s change it into a forest. "Mother suggested. We spent the whole afternoon
__35__and laughing. The wall became a beautiful forest with plants, birds and small animals. I also painted blue sky and white clouds __36__Roy. He was so excited that he forgot he had painted for more than three hours. On that day，everyone in the house knew__37__ special happened．
The night before Roy left for Harvard，he asked me__38__ I still remembered the day when he knocked over the paint．“Since then I’ve __39__worried about making mistakes，”he said. “I believe I can always__40__ways to solve the problems.”
Hearing this, I know my boy has grown up, he can do with problems whenever he meets and wherever he is. Life isn't always perfect, but you can change it better.
