Stories of Kindness from Around the World

Walking


--by sailani, posted Dec 5, 2006

An 85-year young widow neighbor, who lives independently, resumed her daily walks after a recent hip replacement surgery but expressed fear about being too far from home  "What if I fall or something?" 

Three of us on the block are taking turns (Mon-Wed-Fri) to go with her on on her slow trips around the block.  (I've also been able to drive her to a few medical appointments).  

She's a wealth of interesting information and I've learnt a great deal from her.    What a blessing, what a great opportunity to learn and stay in touch with neighbors.
