In the olden days, if some of the children would ask for sweets, the grandmothers would never say that it is not there. They would say, "There are enough sweets, but we just have to go to the shop and buy some". The concept was that, there could be certain angels which would be hovering around, and if you say, "I don’t have this", they would say, “Tathastu”, which means - so it shall be! You never know when these angels would be hovering around so they would tell us to always keep a positive attitude. This is something beautiful. We need to have a positive attitude at all times.
