Helping Our Families
Gabby and Barney were looking for her Dad’s lost watch and found it under Gabby’s bed. Her Dad was so happy and Gabby was pleased she had made him smile.

“What are you doing Gabby?” Barney said as he came into the room giggling. Gabby was under her bed and only her feet were sticking out. “I’ve been looking for something all morning,” Gabby replied. “But your favourite TV programme is on, don’t you want to watch it?” Barney asked leaning down under the bed. Gabby declared, “Of course, I would. But my Dad is sad because he’s lost his watch. It was very important to him. Do you want to help me find it?” Barney slid under the bed beside Gabby and started looking. “Yes! I found it!” Gabby exclaimed jumping up and down. When Gabby presented the lost watch to her Dad, he was so happy! She said, “Even though I missed my favourite TV programme, I’m so glad that I spent time helping my Dad because he’s smiling now.” Have you made anyone smile because you helped them?
