A Fish Tale...

Sam takes great care of his fish, making sure they are fed on time, checking to see if their water is clean. Every evening, he brings me the fish food. It is a ritual between him and I. We walk out to the pond, and he gives me the container. He has trouble opening the lid, so I do it. As I feed them, he watches his fish. His care of these simple creatures often amazes me. He never forgets they need to be fed, and he is always prompt. Thanks to him, the goldfish have survived and flourished.
