A favor returned
« on: November 02, 2010, 08:26:51 PM »
The sweetest thing just happened!  A few weeks ago, when we were moving in, my husband was outside doing some work when an older lady biking by had a flat tire.  Unfortunately my husband didn't have access to his bicycle pump as we hadn't unpacked much yet, so he offered to give her a ride home, which she accepted.  So he drove her a few miles to her house and they chatted.

This evening, we just had a knock on the door.  It was the lady, come to thank him again and give him a little gift bag containing chocolates, a nut mix, and a bottle of whiskey, along with a thank-you card.  I can't believe she was so sweet!  It was a very small favor for such a reward, but very kind of her and much appreciated!  Now I just need to abscond with this yummy cranberry nut mix before he notices.

Stories like this give me hope in the basic goodness of humanity. Thank you.

that is really sweet (of both of them!)  I'm so glad you have some good neighbors!
