Lexie sat brooding over what seemed counterintuitive to everything she had been trained to believe – things like “if you want to be a leader, first be a servant,”  “be humble, take the less important roles, then you will be honored.”

If all that were true, then what had hexed her?  Why is she now left out of the group completely!  She calculated how she might appease the girls in the school’s welcoming committee.  Welcoming committee?  What a misnomer!  They themselves were nothing more than a clique.

Shaking herself out of her sober funk, she reminded herself of how fortunate she was to have her job.  Helping others was a salubrious ointment to her moody self.  And she could use a double dose of that today.

Doing light housework for Mrs. Stewart was easy, The money was certainly not a king’s ransom but it was enough.  She smiled when she turned the corner.  Mrs. Stewart’s grandson was mowing the yard.  A good job and a handsome hunk!  Yes, today she gets a double dose!

ABOUT ME Hello. To various folks I am Neat’nee, Mom, Grandma Neta, Gramma, Aunt Neta, Aunt Noni, Aunt Neno, and Aunt Neto (lots of varieties from little nieces and nephews). To some I’m more like “Didn’t you used to be my teacher?” or “Don’t I know you from someplace?” To you, perhaps, I am a Fellow Blogger. Not “fellow” like a male or a guy, but “fellow” like a companion or an adventurer. I would choose to be Grandma Blogger, and have you pull up a chair, my website before you, while I tell you of some days of yore. I have experienced life much differently than most of you. It was and is a good life. I hope to share nuggets of appreciation for those who have gone before me and those who come after me. By necessity you are among those who come after me and I will tell you of those who came before. Once upon a time in a little house on a prairie - oops, change that lest I commit plagiarism - and change that “house on the prairie” to “dugout on the prairie.” So my story begins...
