The other day I heard a soft knock on the front door. I got up, went to the door. There were two young boys standing there.
I opened the door and one of the boys, the older one, handed me a flier. It read: "Lawn mowing, you grow it, I mow it, price negotiable, 10 percent of all earnings will go to the local food pantry, respect is always used toward customers." Now how great is that?
Since I have lived in my home, I have never had any young boys stop by and offer to mow my yard, price negotiable or otherwise. It gave me a warm feeling and reminded me of my younger years when I used to mow grass and help ladies with their groceries and do any odd jobs I could find.
We needed them then and we need them today. Maybe it will catch on. Let's hope so.
