The Kindness of Neighbors–Slice of Life Challenge Day 19

Kindness is…

A neighbor

Pushing your snowblower across the snowy street to the neighbors toiling with shovels against the hard-packed plow-snow

Teaching a thirteen year old how to use your snowblower–what trust that conveys

A neighbor

Wading knee deep across front lawns to share a power shovel with neighbors struggling to lift the heavy drifts

Offering to leave it until the storm ends–even though your walk will be covered again

A neighbor

Driving by an elderly man shoveling ice-crusted snow with all his might the day after a storm

But calling in help from a thirteen year old with a shovel

A neighbor

Accepting the call with grace and willingness

The recap to his mother-matter of fact- no thanks are needed

  1. This was wonderful-I loved how you connected neighbor throughout. There is something special about paying it forward for others, no matter how small of gesture. Thank you for sharing.
