The Chimney Sweep's Lucky Star
This story is a part of the "Gratitude" Collection — three stories centered on the theme of gratitude. Each explores the practice and experience of gratitude from a different angle.
In this story:
Percival Potts is a master chimney sweep from long ago. Percival has a fine life, but he often feels on the outside of life. When he learns that the reason one of his clients has not paid him on time was due to her work at the local hospital, Percival receives a gift — a gift that changes his perspective on his work, on his community, and on his life's true purpose. And that gift is gratitude.
