It's the thought, time and sweat that count
So I returned from vacation last night to find that our lawn had been mowed for us while we were gone. Keep in mind it hasn't exactly been a great lawn growing season this month: hot, with little rain.
My neighbor was overseas this Spring on military assignment and while he was gone I and another neighbor took care of the lawn for his family. I suppose he wanted to return the favor.
Which he did. And I do appreciate the gesture. I only wish he wouldn't have mowed it as though it were the green on a golf course. The grass is mostly brown, having been mowed close to the roots.
I'll smile, thank him, and water profusely.
