For all of you who understand construction, enjoy!
Here's a truly heartwarming story about the bond
formed between a little 5 year old girl and some construction workers that makes you believe that we
CAN make a difference when we give a child the gift of our time...
A young family moved into a house, next door to a
vacant lot. One day a construction crew turned up to
start building a house on the empty lot. The young
family's 5-year-old daughter naturally took an
interest in all the activity going on next door and
spent much of each day observing the workers.
Eventually the construction crew, all of them
gems-in-the-rough, more or less adopted her as a
kind of project mascot. They chatted with her, let
her sit with them while they had coffee and lunch
breaks, and gave her little jobs to do here and
there to make her feel important.
At the end of the first week they even presented her
with a pay envelope containing a couple of dollars.
The little girl took this home to her mother who
said all the appropriate words of admiration and
suggested that they take the two dollar "pay" she
had received to the bank the next day to start a
savings account.
When they got to the bank, the teller was equally
impressed and asked the little girl how she had
come by her very own pay check at such a young age
The little girl proudly said, "I worked last week
with the crew building the house next door to us."
"My goodness gracious," said the teller, "and will you be working on
the house again this week, too?"
The little girl replied, "I will if those ********
at Home Depot ever deliver the f-----g sheet rock..."
Kind of brings a tear to the eye........
