This morning, a little before 9, a car pulled into the drive way. Matt was on his way to work and asked who it was. I shrugged my shoulders and ran back to my bedroom to change out of my sweatpants and into my jogger pants (real improvement, I know). I didn’t have enough time to throw on a bra. I had three day old hair in a top knot, no makeup, and cozy socks to complete my look.
“My husband and I are leaving for Florida tomorrow, and I wanted you to have the rest of our Greener Grass Farms meat,” said the kind woman.
WAIT, WHAT?! This meat is gold!
I took the bag and peeked inside. There was a steak and a package of pork chops. She said she watches my videos on my Facebook page and knew I’d appreciate the meat. She looked familiar and I quickly realized she lives on my street during the summer months, and we had met in passing earlier in the summer. Even though I appreciate the meat more than she’ll ever know, I was more touched by her act of kindness and thoughtfulness.
Sometimes, I selfishly wonder if any sort of exciting acts will ever break up my daily grind. Being thought of in such a special way truly made my Thursday.
I hope my neighbor and her husband have safe travels to FL. And I hope she knows how thankful I am that she put dinner on our dining room table for my babies to eat. See you next spring, and I will be sure to pass along the act of kindness!
