The Mystery of the Lawn Fairy

A few summers ago, I was blessed by a wonderful lawn fairy. I would go to church or to a meeting at school, and I would come home to find my lawn had been mowed while I was gone. My mother said the lawn fairy had visited.

This went on for many weeks and I did not know who was cutting my grass for me. Every week or so, as often as needed, the lawn fairy would come and mow the yard. He or she always did a great job with the grass.

It was always a wonderful surprise. I never knew when the lawn fairy would show up. Sometimes I would think he was not going to come and I would start making other arrangements, or I would mow part of the yard myself. Then I would leave the house for some reason or another, and come home to find the lawn fairy had paid a visit. It was a marvelous thing!

The Lawn Fairy’s Identity is Revealed

After many weeks, I learned that my older daughter had hired one of her friends to come and cut the grass. It was very thoughtful for her to make this arrangement, as it helped both her friend who needed a job and me. It was something I appreciated very much. My grass never looked better than when the lawn fairy was caring for it.

The Return of the Lawn Fairy

This week the lawn fairy returned to surprise me. I worked at school all day on Thursday. When I got home I saw that the lawn fairy had again come and cut my grass. What a wonderful surprise! It made me feel so good that someone did this for me, and I got to enjoy the mystery of trying to figure out who had done this considerate and generous act for me. It really made my day!

I had a strong suspicion that it was my neighbor three doors down. Later his wife confessed that he had done this kind deed for me. I really do have the most wonderful neighbors here on my street! We look after each other and help each other out whenever we can. I appreciate my neighbors so much!

How to be Someone’s Lawn Fairy

A lawn fairy is someone who shows up and does some lawn work without a word, expecting nothing in return. It makes a nice surprise anytime, but is especially wonderful if done while the homeowner is away.

It is an especially thoughtful gesture for an elderly neighbor, a single mom, a caregiver or someone with an illness or disability. Anyone who finds it challenging to get their grass mowed would particularly appreciate this act of kindness.

A lawn fairy could also trim, pull weeds from a flower bed, or even plant a few flowers in a neglected planter. Imagine the warm feelings of being loved a simple act like this could bring to someone you know who struggles to care for their home!
