Every morning, the happy adoptee, named Lily, would wake up early and head straight to her mother’s room.
She would tiptoe quietly to her mother’s bedside and carefully lay a pair of slippers on the floor, before gently nudging her mother’s shoulder.
“Good morning, Mommy,” Lily would whisper, her bright eyes shining with happiness.
Her mother would stir and sit up, smiling at her daughter. “Good morning, my sweet Lily,” she would reply, slipping on the slippers and taking Lily’s hand.
The two would then make their way to the kitchen, where Lily’s mother would start brewing a pot of coffee while Lily prepared breakfast. Lily loved to make pancakes, and her mother always let her add chocolate chips to them.
As they ate breakfast together, Lily would chatter excitedly about her day ahead, telling her mother about the fun things she had planned at school or with her friends. And all the while, her mother would listen attentively, offering words of encouragement and love.
For Lily, the slippers were a way to show her gratitude for being adopted. She knew that she was lucky to have such a loving and caring mother, and she wanted to do everything she could to show her appreciation.
Her mother never asked for anything in return, but Lily knew that the slippers made her happy, and that was enough for her.
As the years went by, Lily continued to give her mother slippers every morning, even as she grew older and went off to college. And her mother treasured each and every pair, displaying them proudly on a shelf in her bedroom.
For Lily and her mother, the slippers were a symbol of their unbreakable bond, a reminder of the love and gratitude they shared. And every morning, as they slipped on their slippers and sat down to breakfast together, they knew that they were the luckiest family in the world.
