How The Grinch Saved My Attitude
With moving a lot and having to find new doctors, it’s not always easy to find one that actually cares for you.
And I have one doctor right now that just doesn’t seem to get me.
I grew up needing doctors because of heart issues
so I have come across quite a few doctors,
both overseas and in the States.
Yesterday the kids and I were exploring the local state park
and we like to use our imagination and make up stories.
We found a small cave that reminded the kids of the Grinch’s cave.
So as they began to pretend the Grinch was with us, I somehow was reminded
of how he was in desperate need of love and joy and the Whos down in Whoville
were cheery and content.
Despite losing all their belongings and new treats, the Whos sang and were satisfied being together.
And because of their attitude, the Grinch was astounded and finally learned the real meaning of Christmas.
And his heart grew three sizes that day.
So here I am,
choosing joy and contentment,
despite my doctor’s chagrin and attitudes
praying and hoping I can be a light for him,
just as the Whos were for the Grinch.
