Tucking In Mom and Dad

One evening my mom and stepdad were really tired, so I decided to tuck them into bed. First I put toothpaste on their toothbrushes so they could brush their teeth. Next I pulled down the comforter and the sheets so they could climb into bed. When they were in bed I read them a story from the Friend. They really liked it. Then I sang them two songs—“I Am a Child of God” and “You Are My Sunshine.” Then I went to bed.

A few minutes later my mom came in and told me how special I am and that she really appreciated what I had done for them. She explained to me that this was charity—to do nice things for people. I felt really good inside.
