There are some who do not like it. The greening of the grass in the pastures, fields, and of course; our lawns or “yards” as I am prone to call them. Myself, it seems like something I thoroughly enjoy doing; that is as long as I have no problem with the lawn mower.
I have almost three acres to mow; so I use a rider. Last Spring and Summer I had to use a 20 inch push mower for a while, and it about wore me out. I had mowed it a couple of times with the push mower when I found out I needed some stentz in my heart. It was a work, a miracle of God, that I had not had a heart attack.
After I had my two weeks off from work, driving the School Bus, and resting around, I was glad to return and to mowing the yard.
This Spring I have an old rider, praying for a new Cub Cadet with a 50 inch cut, a lawn tractor. Something like that would, most likely, last the rest of my life; and even have some life left to pass on to one of my kids.
At any rate for the second time I mowed the front yard last evening after I returned home from bus driving, and getting more gas for the mower. It astounds me to pay over 20 dollars for five gallons of gas. Mowing the yard is not going to be a cheap endeavor this cutting season. I have jokingly said, and have heard others say, “I need to take out a bank loan to fill the tank on my car”. Have you heard that or said that before.
Thank the good Lord we have the fuel to use. It is a blessing to us. Thank Him also that He gives us the means to buy it.
Yes! Yard mowing has began again. What a blessing it is.
The truth of the matter is I will be mowing the backyard today, along the banks of Flat Creek.
