Kindness Fridays

Posted on Updated on

Although the solar eclipse is a thing of the past, I’d like to report about a kindness our neighbor extended to us on that same day.

On Solar Eclipse Day, my husband and I were taking care of our grandson at our house. We didn’t take him outside, of course, and we decided we would watch the eclipse on the various television programs covering it live.

Our across the street neighbor texted me to ask if we were watching the eclipse outside. I responded that we hadn’t acquired any of the special glasses so we were not.

Not more than a minute later, our doorbell rang and there stood Ian with a pair of viewing glasses for our usage; he had an extra pair and wanted to make sure we had a chance to watch an event that certainly would not occur again in our lifetime.

And what a sight to see! So glad Ian’s generosity made it across the street to our house.

    How kind! It was an interesting sight to see . . . And we loved the drop in temps as we got a peek at the peak.

    Nothing like a neighbor being neighborly…

      We are surrounded by neighbors who look out for each other. It’s quite nice.

      We truly are fortunate with the neighbors surrounding us. It’s a good place to live, to be sure.
