You didn’t think we were going to get through Christmas without a Grinch Story Time, did you? If you did, you don’t know me very well.
The Grinch is my favorite Christmas story. Why? Because the Grinch is a naughty guy, but he isn’t evil as might be supposed. I love the idea of turning the bad guy into a marshmallow, and if you had known my beautiful husband when we first met, you would know I excel at it. I learned it from the Whos of Who-ville. The secret is to just keep being good and joyful and let that stuff rub off on the bad guy. Next thing he knows, he’s been married for 13 years, lives for his family, and would give his neighbor the shirt off his back. His heart grows three sizes before his brain can catch up. Yeah, I know, it doesn’t work Every Time. But when it does work, it’s a beautiful thing. So it is with the Grinch.
