    First Paycheck

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

    A young family moved into a house. One day a construction crew turned up to start building a house on the vacant lot next door. 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 that 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 paycheck at such a young age.

    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 again this week, too?"

    The little girl replied, "I will if those ass holes at Home Depot ever deliver the damn sheet rock."

    Kind of brings a tear to the eye, doesn't it?

    Thanks, Pdawg. Needed a smile when I first worke up.
    And Shepards we shall be,
    for thee, My Lord, for thee,
    Power hath descended forth from Thy hand,
    That our feet may swiftly carry out Thy Command.
    So we shall flow a river forth to Thee
    And teeming with souls will it ever be.
    In Nomine Patris, Et Filli, Et Spiritus Sancti.
