We walk by this house every day on our morning walks. It’s a rental. With a landlord that just wants to collect rent. The roof is old. The siding is falling off. The blinds in the windows are bent up and don’t match. There are a couple of window air conditioners, which means it probably doesn’t have central air. The typical renters who have lived here generally haven’t even bothered to mow the lawn.
Not so with the young family that lives there now. You can see she’s put out little plants and decorative things on the porch. The lawn is always mowed. There are even chairs on the porch as though they enjoy it in spite of its faults.
I must confess, I am so humbled and awed and inspired every time I walk by this little house. Talk about making the most of what you’ve got. Growing where you’re planted. Making lemonade with your lemons. I so have nothing to complain about….
