“Work is work”, Mrs. Freedland

“Work is work. Whatever it is, it’s hard to find help. Nobody wants to do anything anymore.”, Mrs. Freedland was explaining from her back porch. I just kept working and moving, but that phrase stuck in my head. “Work is work”, such a deep thing that Mrs. Freedland said, had me thinking. Mrs. Freedland finished explaining. She was old enough for me to always listen carefully, and her wisdom was always present. Which got me thinking of other customers, other phrases or things that I have remembered from clients of ours. “It is better to live one day as a lion than one hundred years as a sheep”, Martignetti explained to me in Italian, this saying from Benito Mussolini. Santoro explained how he was in the army and in Vietnam, one day when I was sitting in his kitchen talking to him as he had a trip down memory lane.  Bob told me about IRA’s, and investing into stocks. Explained his life, as member of the Navy and how he served a number of years going ship to ship, traveling.  Lots of stories.
