The Journey

The Chef Cook And His Daughter

A daughter complained to her father about life and how things were sohard for her. She did not know how she was going to make it and wanted to give up. She was tired of struggling. It seemed that as soon as one problem was solved, a new one arose. Her father, a chef, took her to […]
