In honor of Easter coming up, I thought we’d share a short fable today 🙂
Let this be a story to marinate on over the weekend, and maybe even bookmark for the future. Hat tip to Sarah Noelle who I first heard this from, and ironically enough, almost exactly a year ago today!
The Magic Thread
In this French tale we read of Peter, a boy who is strong and able, yet sadly flawed by an attitude of impatience. Always dissatisfied with his present condition, Peter spends his life day-dreaming about the future.
One day while wandering in the forests, Peter meets a strange old woman who gives him a most tantalizing opportunity — the chance to skip the dull, mundane moments of life. She hands Peter a silver ball from which a tiny gold thread protrudes.
