Kindness still alive.
Knock Knock, I open the door to neighbor John, a fellow Woodburyian who we met at a small pond in the beginning of summer, with his lovely wife Melissa and daughter Rachel.
He spoke about seeing my post on Facebook about being sick and brought over hot delicious Winter Squash chili, corn bread and cheese.
I was brought to tears when I open the door. I can't believe that this kinda of thing still happens from a neighbor that I will now call a good friend. Papa and I don't have many friends around town and our family is quite away a ways so the fact that this neighbor came over here in the rain speaks volumes to us.
The feeling of complete gratitude is over flowing in me and as neighbor John left, I handed him 2 jars of my homemade tomato sauce.
And the chili, well even though we are sick, its probably the best home cooked meal I've had in months. I will remember this day for years to come and I will make a point to repay this favor.
There really are angels among us. All you have to do is open the door.
