Sarah was a young girl who lived in a small village with her parents. She was known for her impatience and short temper. Whenever things did not go her way, she would get upset and lose her temper. One day, Sarah's father gave her a small plant to take care of. He told her that if she took care of it with patience and dedication, it would grow into a beautiful tree. Sarah was excited about her new plant and she watered it every day. However, after a few days, she noticed that it had not grown at all. She started to get frustrated and wanted to give up. Her father noticed her frustration and reminded her that patience is a virtue. He told her that good things come to those who wait.
