The Kindess of Strangers




A co-worker Eric has befriended gave us this leather couch. It didn't fit into a space that they were planing to use it in and didn't need it anymore. So, we have a couch! Something else that's really cool is that we met our neighbor today. Very nice empty nesters! She is totally prepared for grandkids that never came along and was concerned we didn't have plates and anything to sit on. She marched us into her house and tried to give us her living room furniture. I kid you not!

So, I have a rocking chair, a couple of ottomans for the kids, an air mattress, a massage chair (Eric's not getting out of that thing!), 2 tv's, VCR, movies, games, a bean bag toss, another outside game with pvc pipe and balls you swing around, plates, bowls....... Whew!

I also ran over to Trader Joes and Whole Foods with her as she was looking for something specific. I bought an iced tea and was looking for the sweet and low. Oops! They don't have that at a healthy, organic, chemical free store. She started scavenging through her purse saying, "Oh, you have to just carry it with you around here!".




Then one of Eric's employees and his family stopped by. His wife had made us a welcome basket with goodies and things for the kids. After all of this kindness, I couldn't help but feel better about things! It's amazing what a good night's sleep and kindness of strangers can do for a girl!

See those Enterprise employees are a real nice bunch. I think they are just sucking up to the boss myself.....ha
Glad it's all working out.

I am so glad you are finding nice people. I hope you get all your stuff soon. Hey, if you have a Claim Jumper restaurant around you they are fabulous.
