Kindness Adventures On Our Block
--by Mish, posted Apr 15, 2013
I spend a lot of time at home, so there are many opportunities to interact with our great neighbors.
Today, I got a phone call from an older neighbor who lost her balance while bending over her little dog's water bowl and had fallen down. I immediately ran over to her house with a cold gel-pack in hand! Then, I stayed a while, took some cute pictures of her pup with my cell phone, saw that she was okay, and returned home.
She just called again to tell me not to worry, she is okay.
Upon returning home from her house, just as I was closing my door, I saw another neighbor (who is also a senior) climbing up a small ladder to hang something in her tree. The ladder looked precariously perched, so I ran over to check on her. She thanked me, but refused my help. I told her I would stay next to her, just in case. :)
Both these women live alone and are very independent. They are a huge inspiration!
@mish, that would be the most amazing nighborhood ever. Xd
Any community would be blessed to have you around! :)
Thanks for sharing your kind deeds.
