Yesterday we had a huge storm hit certain areas of our town. Some friends had serious damage with 6 big trees down on their property. My husband got the chainsaw ready to go help today. Our 9 year old son asked if he could go. My husband told him it would be hard work and would take hours. He insisted he wanted to go help.
So after working this morning, my husband picked him up from summer camp. They went and surveyed the damage and got right to work. They made trip after trip with logs and limbs in a wheelbarrow. Not easy considering they had to take the trees up the hill. They worked for over 6 hours. My son never stopped and never complained.
Our friends were so thankful that they offered to pay him. He didn’t want to accept the money 💰 He just wanted to help them.
There are days where I wonder if I’m doing anything right! And then there are moments where this amazing little boy just outshines all of us! Be kind and help others because you never know what they might be dealing with!!
