Creating a Smile at a Difficult Time
--by amac68, posted Oct 9, 2010
I met a lady a few weeks ago whose husband had recently passed away. She told me she was lonely and dealing with immense grief. She expressed that she was struggling with doing things around the house that she was not physically able to do.
I like doing yard work, so I called her up and asked if I could come by, as I wanted to mow her yard for her. After two hours I finished and she was so thrilled to see a well groomed yard and tearfully she thanked me and said she just could not believe someone would work in the hot sun to help someone just like that.
I expressed how much pleasure it gave me to do this for her. She was like a new person full of smiles and joy. What a blessing it was for me.
