A Heart-Warming Tale

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
Here's a truly heart-warming story about the bond formed between a
little 5 year old girl and some construction workers that makes you believe
we CAN make a difference when we give a child the gift of our time.....

A young family moved into a house next door to a vacant lot. One day,
a construction crew turned up to start building a house on the
empty lot. The young family's 5-year-old daughter naturally took an
interest in all the activity going on next door and spent much of each
day observing the workers

Eventually the construction crew, all of them gems-in-the-rough, more
or less adopted her as a kind of project mascot. They chatted with her,
let her sit with them while they had coffee and lunch breaks, and gave her
little jobs to do here and there to make her feel important.

At the end of the first week they even presented her with a pay
envelope containing a couple of dollars. The little girl took this home to her
mother who said all the appropriate words of admiration and suggested
they take the two dollar "pay" she had received to the bank the next
day to start a savings account.

When they got to the bank, the teller was equally impressed and asked
the little girl how she had come by her very own pay check at such a young

The little girl proudly replied, "I worked last week with the crew
building the house next door to us."

"My goodness gracious", said the teller, "and will you be working on
the house this week, too?"

The little girl replied, "I will if those a*sholes at Home Depot ever
deliver the f***ing drywall..."

Kinda brings a tear to the eye doesn't it?
