The Mystery Gardener
--by bibirose, posted May 13, 2008
Sometime back our lawn mower broke down beyond repair. We got someone to mow the lawn for us from time to time but that was getting a little costly. Then a young boy used to come down to our house every so often to do some odd jobs to save up for a bike, so we gave him the job of mowing the lawn with his mum's permission & lawn mower! But, being young, the boy had more interesting things to do, especially after he saved up enough money to buy himself a new bike!
As the days went on, our lawn was getting longer & longer, even with the drought. The other day I went out to the front garden & I couldn't believe my eyes -- the lawn had been mowed! I reckoned it was our kindly neighbour, but when my hubby went to thank him, he said it wasn't me. So, it remains a mystery who was behind this anonymous act of kindness. I truly love those kinds of mysteries...
To all of you mystery helpers around the globe, bless you with love, joy, peace & everything else.
Thanks for sharing
