The kindness of neighbors...

Yesterday, I spent much of the day trying to weed eat the head high growth from aruond the house in an effort to control the mosquitos. We don't have a lawn mower right now and the weed eater, along with an axe and a machete are all we have access to right now. It took quite awhile to get roughly a 20 ft X 20 ft area done and needless to say I was quite worn out as well as mosquito bitten from nearly head to toe.

We had planned to go to a community yard sale in the afternoon so I finished up what I could and we headed over to my mother-in-laws house to pick her up and go to the yard sale. While there she said we could borrow her push mower so we loaded it up and made it home about an hour after dark.

When we returned home we were met with a HUGE surprise. Someone had mowed our entire property! We were flabberghasted and extremely greatful. We had no clue who the kindness had come from. After talking about it we narrowed it down to two possible people. It was either my husbands great uncle or the neighbor who lives in front of us and across the road.

Today we found out that it was a combined effort of two of our neighbors. The one we suspected had come over and started to push mow it and the neighbor behind us brought his tractor over to complete the job.

Take a look at these pictures of one of the greatest kindnesses I have ever been blessed to receive.
