Nice sentiments! I wasn’t sure whether the son was just being selfish, or the father just too consumed in his work to care – I loved your resolution!

A wonderful story. I didn't see the ending coming and was pleasantly surprised. A good message: "But to labour from the heart...seeks the gifts of God...and return them to Him."
Ah, I remember frustration as a young child when Mom had to do housework and I wanted her to play, hehe. Good job! I loved the resolution.

Wonderful story, a wise father taking time for his son and then explaining his labor of love. Enjoyed the surprise ending!
Such a beautiful story of a father's love for his son! Excellently done as always, Ann!

Loved the ending. I think my favorite part was the dad and son playing in the water.
A fine piece of writing!

Heartwarming story! Masterfully written with many good lessons here for all ages! I hope you have a chance to share this beyond the weekly challenge. I could see this as a children's book(let)! :)

Sweet story. I thought it was going to turn into the David statue, but I liked your ending more, even though it should have been no surprise to the boy to see what the statue was turning into.
