Next door, my neighbors had roofing men who were doing some work and I think I was giving them quite a show! I am sure they were chuckling while I was putting up lights that kept falling or when I tripped over the extension cord that I had JUST laid on the grass.
While I was putting the garland around my front door on the ladder..almost frozen to the metal. Three of the roofers came over and helped me. My first reaction in my mind was.."OH..I am alone...my garage is open..."what do they want?". They wanted nothing but to lend me a hand..they finished hanging my garland on the door and fixed my lights on one of the bushes so it would plug in. They were just BEING NICE AND KIND! They did say that I must be pretty desperate to decorate in this weather(I Was!).
This Thursday Thankful, I am thankful for people who are just plain Nice and Kind. There are many out there! Those roofers helped a crazy 'mom' with her garland during their lunch hour and left...but they touched me and made me think.
Has anyone showed you kindness when you didn't ask or someone lend you a hand and you didn't even know them???
