A young carpenter who had been looking for work met a kind old man who needed some work to be done on his old fence around his large property.

The young man had less than a productive first day. His old truck broke down two miles from the man’s house, so he walked in 45 minutes late.

His hammer broke during the day. And to make his troubles worse. he severely twisted his ankle towards mid-day and could barely walk.

The kind old man offered him a ride home. When they reached the house, the young father invited him in to meet his family.
