A 4-YEAR-OLD'S FIRST PAYCHECK

Here's a heart-warming story about the bond that formed between a little 4-year-old girl and some construction workers. It will show you that we all can make a difference when we give a child the gift of our time. (Love the ending!)


A young family moved into a house next to a vacant lot. One day, a construction crew turned up to start building a house on the empty lot. The young family's 4-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 $10. The little girl took this home to her mother, who suggested that she take her $10 "pay" she'd received to the bank to start a savings account.


When the girl and her mom got to the bank the next day, 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 a construction crew building the new house next door to us."


"Oh 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 assholes at Lowes ever deliver the censored’ drywall..........."
