The Crippled Dragon

So my son, my oldest son, we bought him this Lego set for Christmas, this 1600 piece Lego set. He’s big into Legos right now. He loves them and enjoys the process. So he unpacked it all and dumped the pieces out on the kitchen table.

He’s like, “All right, I’m going to get this done.” so he dives right in and spends hours building and putting together his masterpiece. Day after day after day, he sits there chipping away.

I don’t know if any of y’all like Lego’s, but I know I do. And if we’re really tapping into our inner child, I mean, come on, who doesn’t like putting together Legos from time to time!

Let’s get back to the story, shall we!

So he comes to me after about the third or fourth day. And says, “Dad, I’m missing a piece.”

I’m like, “Okay, bud, I’ll come over and let’s take a look, see what’s going on.”

I come over, and we start searching through the pieces on the table, seeing if we can find the piece, sure enough, a couple of minutes passed and we don’t find the piece.

I start thinking to myself… If we lose one piece, it’s not that big of a deal.

“Hey bud, it doesn’t look like we can find the piece. Let’s just complete the creation, the masterpiece, without that piece. — It’s not that big of a deal. I thought to myself. It’s just ONE piece.

“But Dad, you don’t understand.” He exclaims.
