Another inspired by the “For Better or For Worse” comic Strip by Lynn Johnston. This one has the husband just finished raking up a huge pile of leaves in the backyard and while his back was turned, his young son crawled into the pile of leaves to play.
When his father saw this, he screamed at his son angrily to get out of there, having gotten down on his knees to yell at his boy. His son guiltily flicks a few leaves at his angry father, who suddenly relents and the next thing you know both are tussling and having fun rolling in the leaves.
Yes I know that it will mean extra work for the father to re-rake the leaves etc, but I think sometimes we too need to learn a lesson from this cartoon dad, and just relax sometimes and have a little fun, even if it does mean a little extra work for us later. So as you go through life today, are there some leaves in your life that you should perhaps happily let get scattered again, even just for a few moments?
