Once upon a time, there was a small orphaned rabbit named Straggly. Straggly had been living alone in the forest, since her parents had both been killed by hunters. All she had left in the world were her wits and a few simple possessions.
One day, Straggly was out foraging for food when she stumbled along a small, dilapidated cottage in the middle of the forest. Being a curious rabbit, she decided to peek inside and see if there were any inhabitants.
To her surprise, the cottage was occupied by a kindly old witch. Straggly was hesitant to approach the witch, as she was not sure of the creature’s intentions. However, her stomach was grumbling and she had not eaten in days.
Taking a deep breath, Straggly stepped up to the door of the cottage and knocked. The old witch opened the door and looked down at Straggly. Straggly, frightened, quickly explained her situation and asked if the witch could help her out.
The old witch was a kind and generous soul, and soon adopted Straggly as one of her own. Straggly was overwhelmed at the kindness of the old witch, and soon the pair became close friends.
The old witch helped Straggly to take better care of herself and provided her with food, shelter and love. Straggly was so grateful for the old witch’s help that she tried to return the favor as best she could.
Whenever the old witch needed help with chores around the cottage, Straggly was there to assist.
After living together for a number of years, the old witch eventually passed away. Straggly was once again alone in the world. However, the kindness and generosity of the old witch had had a great impact on Straggly.
Straggly learned from the old witch the importance of being kind and generous, and from then on she devoted her life to helping others in need.
The moral of the story is that when we show kindness and generosity to others, it can have a lasting effect on how we act in our daily lives. No matter how small the act, it can make a big difference in someone’s life.
