The Story Girl lifted her golden-hued flagon to her red lips. Her hazel eyes laughed at us over the brim.
“Here’s to our futures,” she cried, “I wish that every day of our lives may be better than the one that went before.”
“An extravagant wish–a very wish of youth,” commented Uncle Blair, “and yet in spite of its extravagance, a wish that will come true if you are true to yourselves. In that case, every day WILL be better than all that went before–but there will be many days, dear lad and lass, when you will not believe it.”
