A big thank you to our recycling gentleman who weekly inspires the young boys in my neighbourhood.
As a senior with time on my hands, I have the opportunity to witness a weekly highlight in our cul-de-sac.
A seven-year-old eagerly and patiently waits for the truck at my corner on garbage day.
The driver is nurturing and kind in allowing the child to “participate” in his job.
I have seen the truck back far into a driveway in order to allow the smaller boys to see the workings of the rig.
There are cheers from watching parents as a child hands him a bag of recycling.
After a horn beeping goodbye which usually draws me to the window, I see continuing up the street, the child in deep conversation with the driver, running on ahead, participating in helping do his “job”.
What a highlight!
