In the cold, snowy days of December, I often wonder if the sidewalks will be clear enough to get to and from work.
Two weeks ago, I woke up to a blanket of snow that accumulated overnight. It looked beautiful but it can be a barrier in terms of travel and accessibility. As I left for work, I wondered whether the sidewalks would be cleared.
As I set out, I was pleasantly surprised. It was smooth going…. until I needed to cross the street. The curb cut was ploughed in!
Here is where I really appreciate the kindness of others. There was a man, bundled up in winter gear, shovelling snow. I asked him if he would clear the patch of snow that was creating a barrier.
Not only did this man clear the snow, he did so with gusto!! He not only put his shovel and his back into the work, he put his heart into it as well. I felt his earnestness to make a difference!
The kindness of this stranger was extraordinary. It made my heart go….POOF WHOOSH!!!! I was filled with GRATITUDE!
