THE WOLF AND THE KID
There was once a little Kid whose growing horns made him think he was a grown-up Billy Goat and able to take care of himself. So one evening when the flock started home from the pasture and his mother called, the Kid paid no heed and kept right on nibbling the tender grass. A little later when he lifted his head, the flock was gone.
He was all alone. The sun was sinking. Long shadows came creeping over the ground. A chilly little wind came creeping with them making scary noises in the grass. The Kid shivered as he thought of the terrible Wolf. Then he started wildly over the field, bleating for his mother. But not half-way, near a clump of trees, there was the Wolf!
The Kid knew there was little hope for him.
“Please, Mr. Wolf,” he said trembling, “I know you are going to eat me. But first please pipe me a tune, for I want to dance and be merry as long as I can.”
The Wolf liked the idea of a little music before eating, so he struck up a merry tune and the Kid leaped and frisked gaily.
Meanwhile, the flock was moving slowly homeward. In the still evening air the Wolf’s piping carried far. The Shepherd Dogs pricked up their ears. They recognized the song the Wolf sings before a feast, and in a moment they were racing back to the pasture. The Wolf’s song ended suddenly, and as he ran, with the Dogs at his heels, he called himself a fool for turning piper to please a Kid, when he should have stuck to his butcher’s trade.
Do not let anything turn you from your purpose.
Books to LOVE:
Anne of Green Gables in one of our absolute favorites!
For some reason I had been avoiding this book series.
I knew there was a lot of hype about it being a classic and all, but I had never read it.
Then recently while searching for our next audible book to listen to, I noticed it there, somehow on our list just waiting to be discovered.
Not knowing too much of the back story, the girls thought it “sounded ok” and we all agreed to give it a try.
It did not take long, after entering into the imagination of Anne Shirley, to realize this was going to make our top ten list.
We LOVED every moment of it and definitely will continue on with the series!
If you have yet to have the experience of living in Anne’s world, I highly recommend you do!
