Stories of Kindness from Around the World

Beautiful Day in the Neighborhood


--by Mish, posted Sep 4, 2020
On Our Block, neighbor surprised us with a sweet (candy) gift she brought back from her Colorado vacation. How thoughtful to think of us.

Another neighbor rang our bell to ask if we had a cat carrier. She needed to take her cat to Vet. Was glad we had one to lend to her.

I always stick 2 or 3 bananas in with the cider I order every week for another neighbor. I leave a Fresh Direct bag on their porch every Monday morning. I like to occasionally surprise them by putting in extra items sometimes 

Another neighbor wants to hold an outdoor “communal block dinner” when the pandemic ends, so we can all reconnect, as well as get to know several new people who bought houses on our block over the past few months. Someone offered to pay to rent a big tent for the occasion, using bonus money she received from her job. We have a very diverse block, so we thought it would be nice if folks bring food to share, native to their heritage. (My “specialty “ is big salads, so I offered that )

It’s a blessing to live on our block. Grateful.
