Dear Father.

“Since you are so kind as to think of me, dear father,” answered Beauty, “I should like to have you bring me a rose, for we have none in our garden.”

It was not that Beauty cared so much for a rose, but she did not want it to look as if she were trying to be better than her sisters, who would have said she refused only to be praised.

  1. A rose in the middle of the winter? Oh well, I will see what I can do. And he left with a heavy heart and an empty wallet.
    Happy father’s day! May it be every day family day!
