49 - Heidi
author Johanna Spyri tells the inspiring story of five-year-old orphan, Heidi,
dumped off on her grumpy hermit grandfather – a goatherd and cheese maker who
lives high in the Swiss Alps – by the conniving Aunt Dete. He at first resents
Heidi's arrival, but the charming child manages to penetrate his harsh exterior
and his heart. However, Aunt Dete returns three years later, snatching her
away, hiring her to a rich family in Germany as a companion of wheelchair-bound
12-year-old Klara. Heidi inspires Klara to try to walk all while annoying
the family’s stern housekeeper Fraulein Rottenmeier. The story is well-known to
all who have seen the Shirley Temple classic movie of the same name – and who
are inspired by the joy and selflessness of a little girl who loves those who
mistreat her … and triumphs against negativity thinkers.
