Mommy’s Flower Garden

Joshua’s mommy was sick. She couldn’t get up to work in her garden or do anything fun.

“I want to help Mommy,” Joshua said.

“Why don’t you pray about how you can help her?” Daddy asked.

Joshua knelt down by his bed. “Heavenly Father, please help me find a way to help Mommy feel better.” He stayed on his knees until he thought of what to do.

He got a piece of paper and some crayons and drew a picture of Mommy’s flower garden.

Joshua made sure Mommy wasn’t sleeping before he went in her room. “I made this picture for you,” he said. “Now you can look at your flowers without getting up.”

“It’s beautiful,” Mommy said. “Thank you.”

Joshua kissed Mommy’s cheek. He was glad he had done something to help her feel better.
