"Bad things do happen; how I respond to them defines my character and the quality of my life. I can choose to sit in perpetual sadness, immobilized by the gravity of my loss, or I can choose to rise from the pain and treasure the most precious gift I have - life itself." - Walter Anderson.

"Life" is a fairly easy word to spell. When you were first learning spellings in school, you are likely to have begun with short words of only three or four letters. Of course, such a word as "life" introduces the idea that in English it is not always possible to "sound the word out". Children learn quickly that the i sound of "I" and "life" is not the same as the i of "if" and "it".

After learning the sound made by the i-e digraph, children quickly master words such as "knife", "prize" and "mine". If only there were always a single way to write each sound, spelling English words would be so simple! The young child pleased at being able to spell "life" soon must face -ie- -ei- and -igh- spellings, too!
