FC: It's the Thought that Counts
1: Once Upon A Time | There was a little boy named David. David lived with his mom and they were best friends.
3: Everynight they would play games, | and read books, | and at the end of the night she would tuck him into bed.
4: One day david decided he wanted to get his mommy a present.
5: but he wasn't sure what she would like.
6: He tried to bake a cake, but there weren't any eggs.
7: and he thought about flowers, but he knew better than to dig in the flower bed.
8: He even considered his favorite toy, but he knew she didn't like cars.
9: He thought and thought | but he didn't know what to give to his mom.
10: Finally he decided he would paint her a picture.
11: When he was done he ran to show her what he had painted
12: "It's beautiful!" She exclaimed. She was so happy.
13: David was so proud of himself. That day he learned that it is the thought that counts, not the present.
14: David was the happiest he had ever been. He loved his mom more than ever before. They fell asleep that night in his bed, and dreamed happily ever after. | THE END!
15: They spent the rest of the night together, | painting polka dotted elephants and purple striped hippos.
