Time is Running Out

“It is such a cold and windy day,” said Mrs. Robin. “Even though it is still autumn, I feel winter is just around the corner and I have so much work to do.”

Mrs. Robin was frustrated. There was always so much work to do and it seemed to her that there just wasn’t enough time to do it all.

“I am running out of time,” said Mrs. Robin. “How will I ever get all this work done before winter?”

Mrs. Robin had just put her three babies down for a nap. She took the broom and started sweeping the dust off the branch she had built her nest on.

“It is a bit chilly out today,” Mrs. Robin said as she waved to Sunshine Sally, who just happened to be out picking apples.

“It is,” said Sunshine Sally. “However, the air is fresh.”

“It is definitely fresh,” said Mrs. Robin. “I would love to stay and chat. However, I have so much work to do. I just don’t know how I will ever get it all done before winter.”

“I could help you,” said Sunshine Sally.

“Oh no!” exclaimed Mrs. Robin. “I can’t ask you to do that.”

“I would love to help,” said Sunshine Sally.

Just then, Mrs. Robin’s three babies woke up from their nap.

“Oh dear!” cried Mis. Robin. “I was hoping they would sleep a bit longer. I have to go and get them some food now.”

“Let me look after them for you,” said Sunshine Sally. “I love babies.”

“Are you sure?” asked Mrs. Robin. “They are a handful.”

“I wouldn’t mind,” said Sunshine Sally.

Sunshine Sally reached up into the nest and took each baby and carefully set them down on the grass. She sat down with them. She sang songs to them and she told them stories. The babies were enthralled by her voice. Sunshine Sally was calm and soothing and the babies seemed to be calm and soothing as well.

“I can’t believe how calm you have the babies,” said Mrs. Robin, happily. “You just seem to spread sunshine wherever you go.”

“I had fun with the babies,” said Sunshine Sally. “Anytime you need someone to watch them for you, I would be happy to.”

“I just might take you up on that” said Mrs. Robin.

“I wouldn’t mind at all,” said Sunshine Sally.


Moral of this Story:

  • It is always good to help others in need.
  • Example: Sunshine Sally helped Mrs. Robin with her three babies while she went to get them some food.
