THE BEST MOTHER’S DAY
written by Debbie Williamson
Fawn and Spot were wondering what they could do for Mrs. Hansen on Mother’s Day. They wanted to do something really special for her. She has never treated them as her barn yard animals or even as pets. Mrs. Hansen has always treated Fawn and Spot like her own children.
“I really wish I could make it to your graduation ceremony,” Fawn overheard Mrs. Hansen say to her daughter, Jenny. “I just can’t afford it right now.”
“Spot,” said Fawn. “I have the perfect idea for a gift for Mrs. Hansen. How much money do you have saved up?”
“A couple of hundred dollars,” said Spot.
“Me too,” said Fawn. “That should be enough.”
“Enough for what?” asked Spot.
“Enough to get Mrs. Hansen a plane ticket so she can go see Jenny graduate,” said Fawn.
“Wow!” exclaimed Spot. “Fawn, that is an awesome idea.”
“You think so,” said Fawn.
“Yes,” said Spot. “I do.”
Mother’s Day came around and Mrs. Hansen seemed to be a bit depressed.
“What is wrong?” asked Fawn.
“Jenny is graduating and I can’t afford to go see her,” said Mrs. Hansen.
“Here,” said Fawn, handing her a Mother’s Day card. “Maybe this will cheer you up.”
Mrs. Hansen could not believe her eyes. Tears poured down her face as she stood holding a plane ticket for Ontario.
“Oh,” she.cried a few minutes later. “Thank you so much. This is the best Mother’s Day gift ever.
