Kim: Thank Heaven For Neighbors

Kim Knerl Facebooks: "So I go out to shovel that big nasty berm pushed up by the highway district's plow so my mail carrier can get to the mailbox and also to clear the end of my driveway. Not looking forward to it as the pile is large and deep. Next thing I know, some guy is coming down the road in a white truck with a plow on front. Without a word he lowers the plow, pushes the snow away from my mailbox, clears the opening to my driveway, waves and drives away. I love the people around here!"

DFO: Last night, a neighbor snow-blowed the sidewalk up & down our side of McFarland Avenue. Dunno which one. But I appreciated the kindness, after shoveling 6 inches of snow from the driveway & patio for the second night in a row.

Question: When did a neighbor last do a kindness for you?
