In an old part of town, which lived in weathered buildings lived a boy and his Father. The Father ran a fruit stand with his son. Together they ran a fruit stand wedged between two buildings. Many walked by barely even noticing this forgettable little fruit stand. The Father didn’t care, whoever came by he showed a soft smile and welcomed them, and a hearty goodbye when they left. The son admired the smile his dad wore even in less than ideal circumstances. Soon the Father grew old, and his son turned from a small boy into a tall Man. The Man soon grew complacent with the work he did at the fruit stand. He realized that he didn’t want to sell fruit anymore, instead he wanted to manage a flower shop out of town. The Father understood; breaking away from the family business to set up his own was how he started this little fruit stand in the first place. Together, the Father and the son set together to make a flower shop on the other side of town. At first the place they chose was cheap and run down, but through hard work and dedication the Man was able to change the place into a welcoming establishment. Soon the Man had his own family, and the cycle continued.
