Good deeds can be magic. When Grandma falls ill, two young girls with a simple, rural life style are each called upon to make a solitary journey through the forest. Their route and circumstances are the same, but their experiences contrast sharply. One finds peace and a sense of achievement. The other is forced to face her self-centered mind, and realizes she has a lot to learn about kindness.
Powerful, simple, and profound, this story demonstrates the value of kindness and shows us how the ordinary things in life can sometimes be our wisest teachers.
