[7-7-2011] - Wheelbarrows
Nothing but manual labor comes with them.
Growing up the sight of a wheelbarrow meant one thing to me... manual labor. Moving dirt, rock, plants, rubbish you name it I hated it. One of those things your father always tells you it builds character. Notice they only say those types of phrases when it something you desperately want to get out of doing?
Of course as I get older I don’t mind helping my parents out in the yard nearly as much. Sure the work hasn’t exactly gotten any more exciting, certainly not when it involves a wheelbarrow. Yet I have grown to cherish the moments more. Looking at it as less of a manual labor situation and more as time with the family. Funny how as you get older your perspective on things change. Someday it will probably come full circle and I’ll be the one telling my kids shoveling and moving dirt builds character.
