True Colors

There once was a young gnome who lived in a particularly plain garden.  The garden didn't have much color, all the gnomes around him were able to appreciate the simple contrast between one shade of brown and the gnext.  Though he couldn't fault his loved ones for this, he also believed in his heart that he was destined to be more colorful than that.  Maybe it was the occasional glimpse of a rainbow in the sky that did it, but he knew that his heart was full of more color than his garden would allow.  The sun would set and rise again, and this little soul would try to hide his beautiful heart with a smile on his face.  You can imagine his surprise when one day he happened to meet a particularly colorful soul.  He knew in an instant that they would be great friends.  What he didn't know, though, was that it wouldn't take long before his friend's colors would start rubbing off onto him.  If only we could all remember the lesson he learned that day.  Surround yourself with friends who love you for who you are, and you're sure to brighten the garden with your true colors!
