Day 39: Warmed up Winter for a Stranger


Well it's another freezing day in Wisconsin. No surprise there.  Right around this time of year is when I really start looking forward to spring.  The winter just seems to drag on forever and the cold just lingers.    I was talking to my neighbor today and I mentioned that Emma was almost nine months old and that he probably hasn't seen her since she was four months old.  This is my neighbor across the street.  I think it is pretty crazy that I can live throwing distance from someone and still not see them for months at a time. I blame this entirely on Winter.  During these months we all tend to hibernate and just wait for warmer days.

Today I wanted to help someone who has to endure this weather more than the average person.  So, for my act of kindness today, I brought hot chocolate to a crossing guard at a school.  He was very appreciative of my act.  I hope it warmed up his day a little bit (Get it?..."warmed").

On a side note, I just wanted to write that I had someone do a kind act for me this morning.  I got home late last night and saw there was about four inches of snow waiting for me to shovel it.  When I woke up this morning I looked out the window and saw my driveway had been completely shoveled.  This made my day.  Not sure who did it but it was definitely appreciated!
