Green, Green, Green, Green . . . Ain’t it Beautiful!

With spring comes a renewal of life. Green leaves replace the dormant grey. Beautiful flowers in an array of colors, and home gardens at the ready to supply fresh vegetables. These wells of life feed us through the summer and well into the winter if you so choose to freeze or can your home-grown bounty.

Another plus or minus, depending on how you view it, is the rebirth of our lawns. Some love the Saturday task of mowing, weed eating, edging, and all the other pleasantries that go along with lawn care. Others simply dread it.

We were introduced to an older gentleman who does lawn care for a living. His prices were so reasonable, we couldn’t help but give him an opportunity to prove his ability to cut, clip, and trim. He did an excellent job and has been with us for several years, now. Other than his work, what I really admire about this man is his honesty. He comes out each week to look over our yard. If it needs work, he does it. If not, he doesn’t go through the motions  just to fill his pockets, he leaves and returns the following week. Not only does he care for our yard, he cleans our gutters, hauls our trash, and will do pretty much anything we ask. If you know of someone who could possibly do the same for you, give them a chance…they might just surprise you.

Have a great week and may God shine upon you and your family.
