Character Patrol: Character In Action

March 8, 2014

My husband and I live in an older neighborhood. Many families have lived there for over 35 years. Although we all live very different lives, we watch out for each other. However; when snow comes we all do what we can to shovel our own driveways much less our neighbor’s. I have noticed that snow blowers are rare on our street. And, I have witnessed our neighbors bundled up in coats, scarves, hats and gloves attacking their sidewalks and driveways with snow shovels and brooms.

My husband has never shoveled our driveway completely. He mashes the snow down enough so we can get in and out of the driveway if we don’t hesitate as we leave.

Yesterday, I was amazed to find that someone had shoveled the walk up to our house and my side of the driveway to dry pavement. (My husband’s car was on his side). I thought my husband had decided to play in the snow, but he met me at the door and asked if I knew who shoveled our walk and driveway.

So, to the anonymous person who took the time to take care of us – thank you so much for the dry feet.

This week’s Character Patrol was brought to you by Susan D. Coffman, Program Coordinator Lee’s Summit CARES.

Be inspired to notice the random acts of kindness that are part of every day.
