As I closed the door on the refrigerator I noticed something on the kitchen floor near the end of the island. Closer inspection revealed a single bejeweled slipper.
I snatched the slipper off the floor and began to search the kingdom (downstairs) for the damsel to whom the shoe belonged.
I found a young princess was wearing only a single Royal slipper reclining in her Nana’s office.
Kneeling before her, I gently placed the orphaned slipper on her foot.
She looked at me and smiled wide. “Grand-Dude, I knew you would come for me,” she exclaimed.
I took her hand and we danced in the kitchen, hallway, and dining room.
Life’s greatest lessons come in moments such as this, and I am grateful for such a wonderful teacher.
