Thankful for snow angels

My husband is 77 and I am 74. Our snowblower is broken, expected back in two weeks after repairs. We have been shoveling by hand. On one occasion, one of our neighbors came over and took care of the snow berm. On another, the neighbor on the other side of us did the same.

One day a gentleman with a snow plow on the front of his truck stopped and did the street side and said “God bless.” Another time, a gentleman with a snow plow on his truck came over with a shovel and then decided he would use the plow on his truck. On Dec. 24, a young man on an ATV with a blade on the front turned around and came back and did our entire driveway.

In a time when things look dismal around the world, we have these shining lights come out from nowhere and do the right thing. I feel so blessed and thankful.
