“It is Mother’s Day,” said Jason to his younger sister, Annie. “We should do something special for Mother?”
“Yes,” said Annie. “But what can we do? We don’t have any money.”
“True,” said Jason. “There are things we can do without money. We could make her something.”
“That would be good,” said Annie. “We know she loves flowers, trees and animals.”
“Let’s make her a big poster,” said Jason. “We could draw flowers, trees and animals.”
“Why don’t we show her some flowers, trees and animals?” asked Annie.
“That is a good idea,” said Jason. “We could take Mother on a nature walk.”
“Yes,” said Annie. “Mother would love that.”
“We can show her where the deer are,” said Jason. “Mother would love that.”
Mother Elf came into the kitchen and saw the look of excitement on Jason and Annie’s faces.
“What are you two up to?” asked Mother Elf.
“Go get your hiking boots on,” said Jason.
“We are going to take you on a nature hike,” said Annie, grinning from ear to ear.
Mother Elf was thrilled. She loved going for nature hikes but even more with her children. She loved that they like nature just as much as she did.
“Look at the beautiful tulips,” said Jason.
“And the big tall oak tree,” said Annie.
“There is a chipmunk,” said Jason.
“Oh look,” said Mother Elf, pointing out into a field. “Look at the deer!”
Mother Elf, Jason and Annie stood watching the deer and they were surprised to see two fawns poke their little heads up. They started running around and frolicking through the grass.
Mother Elf smiled. Jason and Annie were so happy. They knew they had given Mother Elf the perfect Mother’s Day gift.
“Happy Mother’s Day,” said Jason and Annie.
“Thank you,” said Mother Elf. “This is a good idea for Mother’s Day. This is absolutely the best day ever.”
