    I like zoning out when mowing. Just walking. Behind a mower. Not thinking of anything except making this grass shorter than it was.

    I like going to my P.O. Box and picking up a fist full of envelopes filled with checks.

    getting paid. :) tips aren't bad either. :) after that, working my tail off, looking back at what was accomplished, and being able to take pride in a job well done.

    I love pulling in the driveway and seeing my children peeking out the front door waiting for dad. And I love being able to have the oldest hang out with dad on rain days working around the shop or taggin' along for quotes and the occasional "watch a movie in the truck" while dad mows day. Other than that, there's nothing I LOVE about this job. It's a means to an end, nothing else.

    I love to be done at the end of the day and hear the BL can opening. That sounds is soo good!

    I love the look of satisfaction on my customers face when I get done with a landscaping project that can range from minimal to extravagant.

    Especially those customers that can't physically do the work any more, or are just too busy.

    On top of it I'm grateful that I can work outside and do something that I love and support my family. I only wish everyone could be so lucky.
