I was the beneficiary of a random act of kindness today. I am 64 and have some trouble with physical activity we just had an additional 6" of snow on top of the other snow fall, while clearing the bottom of my drive of the berm left by the city a man with a plow in a black Ram cleared the bottom of my drive and just kept moving, he did several peoples drives that way.

So I am endeavoring to pass it on.

So remember that doing a random act of kindness is never wasted ...PASS IT ON!

We haven't had much snow all at once for several years but, when we did (right after I retired) I cleaned the driveways of several neighbors. My wife bought me a snow blower for Christmas and Maurice Chandly (he was a member on this site before he passed, and our neighbor) I would spend several hours a day cleaning driveways. People who were older and even the ones that worked were thankful for us and we were just having a blast! Haha
So, it is not all one sided. The people who do good turns enjoy doing them as much we do receiving them.

I usually keep our little private road cleared on the rare occasions we get an accumulation of snow, thanks to my little Kubota tractor. Only takes a little while and we all benefit.

I think thats awesome neighbors helping neighbors. I also believe in the law of sewing and reaping. How you treat and what you do to others always comes back on ya. Its a beautiful thing

Speaking of snow, we just this morning got our first offering. Still coming down so I'll probably wait until tomorrow to go clear the road.
