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, 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 import ant.

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 pay check 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?"

The little girl replied, "I will if those a**holes at Home Depot ever

deliver the f***ing sheet rock..."

Kind of brings a tear to the eye.
