Doing Good In The Garden

--by adds, posted Apr 27, 2012

My mother in law was telling me about her neighbour. Doris is 79 years old and lives by herself since her husband passed away last year. 

Her husband used to be very proud of his garden and always kept it looking pristine. Unfortunately Doris isn't well enough to be able to look after her garden so it is very overgrown. 
When I heard this it really struck a chord with me and sounded like the ideal opportunity for me to help someone who needed it.
This afternoon I spent three hours sorting Doris' garden out for her. It now looks great. 
Doris is happy. I'm happy. Life is good!
