The Kindness of Neighbors

I was dreading shoveling my driveway.  I was wondering if I could skip it and just drive over the snow and thinking about how that would be a bad idea but really kind of hoping…

And then my neighbor started to shovel the driveway.  LIKE A KNIGHT IN SHINING ARMOUR.  No knight has been more timely.

He’s a kind man.

His girlfriend has a car that parks there often, so he will get a benefit, but its not like she has to park in the drive.  There’s a well maintained church parking lot across the street.  I’ve parked there myself on bad snow days.

Nor did he have to make sure it was clear in time for me to go to work.  That was also kindness.

He’s my hero and I feel like I need to return the kindness somehow.  I shall have to figure out how.
