A cute story

My next door neighbours are an older couple from Sri Lanka. They have a granddaughter my son's age and whenever she comes to visit them, they play together outside our house. Last summer, they (the granddaughter and my son) decided to be very helpful and picked all the rhubarbs from our garden. I spent the weekend making jam and as a thank you I walked over to my neighbours and gave them a jar to give to the little girl. The grandmother was so happy with this, that in a few moments, she came over to my house with a bag of home-made Sri Lankan sweets and this beautiful dress that she had just brought back with her from home. I was so thrilled!
