The Laughing Lion

My friend Songbird wrote a beautiful sermon, Where the Wild Things Are. In it, she talks about bravery, lions, and her own wonderful courage.
A few years ago, she came to visit me and we went to a museum together. She bought a mug imprinted with Tony Sarg's illustration of the Laughing Lion and I bought a key chain with the same image. I carry it with me to make me feel brave and cheerful.
Unfortunately, the museum is very wary of anyone reproducing their images, so I will make do with a link to their shop, where you can purchase a Laughing Lion mug of your very own. Perhaps it will make you brave and cheerful, too.
