I Am Fortunate-----
I feel very fortunate to have young people who live close to me, and who are willing to do odd jobs. The boy is seventeen now and has recently started a regular job at a pizza place, and I will miss him greatly! His sister also does yard work for me. They are both willing to work and to listen and learn how I like things done. It is such a blessing to be able to find good helpers, and we all benefit from the arrangement. When my knees need a rest I sit and supervise. Without the help of these young people there are many projects that would have not been completed. Sometimes teenagers get a bad 'rap,' but if you need part-time garden help and can find young people in your neighborhood who need work, and who know how to work, it can be a blessing to all of you!
