Stitch after stitch,Amy is embroidering(刺绣) her hand-made napkin.

“One side!”said Lizzy,with an unpleasant laugh,“Why,we both began sewing(缝制) at the same time,and I'm now at the fourth side of mine!”

“I know that I am __3__,but I'll try to be steady(稳的),and to do my best.” said the little girl,as she went on with her work.

“As I sew so fast,” cried Lizzy,“I'm sure to have finished my napkin __4__ before the bell rings for dinner. I'll just run for a minute to the garden,to see if the roses are out;”—so,leaving her work on a chair,Lizzy __5__ out of the room.

“Had you not better finish your sewing?”said Amy. “It m ust be near the time for __9__.”

“Oh! I can finish it in two minutes,only I want to read that story book,which Tom told us it was so funny.”

“What if you __10__?”

“No fear of that!” cried Lizzy,“No one is so likely to be as a slow little thing like you!”

Poor Amy made no __11__,quietly she worked on. Lizzy was soon deep in her story and she forgot all about her __12__,till suddenly the sound of the bell woke her up.

“Can it be dinner time!”she cried. “Oh dear,and my napkin is not hemmed! And yours—”

“It is __13__ finished,” said Amy,as she quietly put it away.

“This is much like ‘The Hare and the Tortoise’,the faster,but not the winner,”thought Lizzy,who,though proud,had enough __14__ to take a lesson: The quick,proud may have the __15__,but the quiet,steady may do more in the end.

That's __4__ Super Ewan was born.

Word spread about Ewan's good deeds(事

迹). People donated(捐赠) money and

something else,and Ewan handed them out to

those in need. When __5__ donated bottles of

water,Ewan and his family held a drive to get

even more. They __6__ the water to Flint,

Michigan,a city that had unsafe drinking water.

Another time,a business donated six turkeys

for Thanksgiving. __7__ his parents' help,

Ewan used social media(媒体) to ask for more

turkeys,plus side dishes. “In the end,” he

says,“we h anded out 64 turkey dinners to

__8__ all around Detroit.”

Ewan has a motto: Everyone can be a superhero to someone. At an event called the Hero Round Table,Ewan told the listeners,“It's not __9__ to help people. You can keep some socks and snacks in your car to help people in need. Every __10__ thing helps and can make someone feel happy.”

I know a Catherine who is smart,educated and interesting. But I avoid her because she never __1__ complaining(抱怨)!For years,I fought against my feelings,because I really like and admire her,but I've found I just can't be her friend. Her world is __2__ “buts...”.

The trip would have been nice,but the drive was too long. The food was good,but the light of the restaurant was too __3__. The hotel was too hot,the bed hurt her back and the room service was too slow. Her complaints were __4__ changing me. Months ago,my best friend Daisy was listening to me complaining about Catherine __5__ she just became really angry. “Either break up with her,or leave me alone.” She shouted at me,

“I'm t ired of listening to your complaining.” Her honesty surprised me,and I began to keep myself away from Catherine. Later,I did

__6__ her.

Now I try to remain happy and positive(积极的) about life,and find friends of

the same. There's been scientific research lately.

It shows that people who find __7__ to be thankful for their lives are actually happier,

and I believe that is true. Endless complaining seems to control your life if you let it come

into your brain. And too much complaining

will actually make your life __8__.

Some people take “gratitude(感激之情) walks”every day,where they __9__ their

lives in a positive way. By developing a grateful attitude,you can be turned away from

what's troubling you,and __10__ what makes

you happy. Then you will have a beautiful life.

The boy __5__ on foot for the river and some time later came back with a bowl of water. The old man asked him, “Did you notice the beautiful flowers along the road and the birds singing in the trees?”The boy could say nothing about them because he gave his __6__ attention to the bowl in his hands.
