Once upon a time a young boy did something very bad. Even though it was a secret and no one else knew, he felt awful.
"I don't Like feeling bad," he told his dog. "From now on, I will do good things."
He picked a bouquet of yellow flowers for his grandmother.
When she saw them, a smile lit her face. "Oh thank you," she said. "I can't get out to pick flowers anymore, and these make the house look beautiful. You are such a good boy."
The boy said, "You're welcome," but he thought, "I am not good. I am bad. You wouldn't love me if you knew what I did." He felt terrible.
The boy asked his grandfather, "Can I help you Grandpa?"
Grandpa pointed to the tools scattered across the garage floor. "You could pick those up. It's hard for me to bend over."
