Poor Harry! He has to have things the same everyday. The troll would never make it through Covid-19!!
Some days I feel like Harry. I just want things back to the same way that they used to be.
I want to go out and smile at people.
Hug my friends.
Eat at restaurants.
Harry's routine was interrupted with a whiny pink dragon.
So I guess all things considered, Toast with a Side of Dragon has taught me that nothing can stay the same forever.
Change causes us to grow. To go beyond our comfort zone. Adapt and keep moving forward.
There is a silver lining at the end.
We learn to love our lives in a different way.
Toast with a Side of Dragon
Every day, Harry the grumpy troll followed the same routine. First, he got out of bed and touched his toes six times with no exceptions. He counted as he exercised, “One, two, three toes, went to the store. Four, five, six toes, and then there are no more.”
