Learning from Dwarfs

My daughter gave me an innocuous little gift in my stocking this year. To the best of my knowledge there was no double meaning intended, but a much deeper meaning is precisely what I received. What was the gift? Two of the seven dwarfs… Happy & Grumpy.

Maybe I just want desperately to believe that she didn’t mean anything by the gift. No matter. Almost immediately my mind began to whirl. And 6 days before then end of the year, I made a resolution.

I put these two iconic fellows on the nightstand by my bed. Each morning as I wake up I make a choice… Happy? Or Grumpy? Thank God for little children. Thank God for little dwarfs.
