Hard-Working People Whose Work is Important

I know a musician who works hard every day to make music from the 1930s and 1940s. Steve does a lot more than practice the guitar. He builds relationships with activities directors of senior communities so he can be hired to perform. The magic happens when the residents hear music that just isn’t on the radio any more. Some audience members have been ill for a long time; the music revives them. The musician’s work is extremely important because he brings happiness to people who are old and tired.First Grade Writing Prompts for HolidaysSecond Grade Writing Prompts for HolidaysThird Grade Writing Prompts for HolidaysFourth Grade Writing Prompts for HolidaysFifth Grade Writing Prompts for Holidays
Another person I know who works hard every day is a farmer who also works full-time and is helping to raise her grandson. Andrea works from home as a claims adjuster. For a full eight hours every weekday, she must make careful decisions to determine who was at fault, and how much money someone should be compensated. Over her lunch hour, and before and after work, she checks the health of the chickens and goats, and the garden, too. Three-year-old Dajmarko tags along wherever she goes, and she takes care of him, too. Andrea’s work is important because it is all about nurturing. Really, she mothers the world.
My neighbor is works hard every day because she has no choice. Debbie’s daughter, who is an adult, has a severe learning disability and needs special care. They are poor, so Debbie works three jobs to make ends meet. She is a secretary at a local school. On Sundays, she takes care of infants in the nursery while their parents are attending the worship service. Finally, she runs her own baking business out of her home. Debbie’s work is important partly because so many people depend on her. But mostly, her work is important because she sets a particularly important example for today’s young people: you have to do what needs to be done.
