This was pretty neat !
An elderly lady who lives behind us lost her husband to cancer two years ago. She has been doing alright, her two grown sons have been helping her out a lot. Two doors down from her is a witness couple, they are pretty involved in the religion and avoid my wife and I like the plague
( we DAed ourselves a little over two years ago )
So her lawnmower broke down, and her son has not been able to come over an fix it. So this afternoon I went over and started to mow it by hand , its a pretty darn big yard .
As I was mowing the front the witness couple comes home, they go past real slow when they realize that it is me, the evil doer mowing the yard.
Right away the lady who own the house pulls in, and as she gets out of her car the witness couple is getting out of their car, and they are standing there pretending to be counting their money,( when in reality it is obvious that they want to listen about what is going on).
Lady says, how nice it is that her lawn is getting mowed, and that she appreciates the effort that my son and I were making.
She says pretty loud, 'well I dont know what i would have done, if you and your son didn't start mowing".
(Witnesses are still standing in the same spot, pretending to be counting their money with one ear on our conversation.)
I say in a loud tone, "well, I don't think any of the neighbors on this side would have done it".
The witnesses go in their house at this point shooting glances over at me,
It may have been uncalled for, but it sure was sweet for me to show them that they are not the ONLY people who care for others
OK I'm done ranting, but again it was a sweet thing !
