Never hesitate to lend a helping hand to anyone in need
Growing old doesn’t mean you can’t do many of the activities you used to like. Many older people know how to have fun by going shopping by themselves, eating well, visiting friends, and doing many other activities. This is certainly true for those who are still energetic despite their age, such as this kind 93-year-old Alabama lady.
Although she is in her late 90s, she is fully capable of taking care of herself. She was blessed to have caring neighbors who are always willing to offer a helping hand when she needs it. She is loved by everyone because of her generosity. She wouldn’t give up her independence for anything, and she never thought of going into a nursing home as she was able to care for herself. However, she can’t help but wonder how safe it is for a lady her age to live alone in a big house.
These worries are reasonable since we frequently hear of elderly people being robbed by strangers who know there is no one else in the house but the defenseless old person. Not only do these criminals take their money but also their identities. She was worried and thought no one was looking at her, but she was mistaken.
Two young men from the area had been watching this lady’s routine for quite some time, anxiously awaiting their opportunity to approach her.
Rodney Smith Jr. and his best friend Terrence Stroy had a plan. But, if your initial assumption was that they were going to hurt their neighbor, you couldn’t be more mistaken. These wonderful men were waiting for an opportunity to lend a helping hand to this nice lady in need. Although the old lady was able to take care of herself, she couldn’t mow her lawn by herself. She was too old for that. So, these young men didn’t think twice and took her lawnmower and decided to take their time and effort to mow the grass.
“We did this sweet lady’s lawn today. She is 93, her neighbors told us that she has been out there trying to cut her own lawn. Have no fear. We are going to make sure her lawn is done every two weeks! We are here to make a difference in our community!”
Once they saw the pleasure in her eyes, that feeling inspired them to make it their goal to aid the elderly and single moms. This prompted them to launch a multi-state lawn care catering company. Do you know what is the most interesting part is? They do it for free.
These young boys are still at school, and aside from being excellent students, everyone says they are the best friends that anybody could wish for. These young men unquestionably have hearts of gold.
“I thought I needed to do something about it. That is when I decided to cut lawns for the elderly, disabled, and single mothers for free.”
Their kindness is appreciated by the whole community, and their ingenuity inspires every young man to follow in their footsteps and be helpful and valuable members of society. Rodney and Terrence are genuine visionaries for keeping youngsters off the streets by engaging them in volunteer work. They show the children the actual meaning of life, which is to be there for those in need.
Many people admire their deeds and encourage them to keep doing what they are doing by saying encouraging things like, “I adore what you’re doing! Continue to do so!! Rodney, the world could use a lot more individuals like you!”. Another person comments, “You are influencing more hearts than you realize… “We are proud of you!”
