We had a delicious early lunch at the bakery, grab the few things on our list and started the return trek. About halfway back, a kind islander in a pickup gave us a ride almost home. He had to stop at one point due to line crews blocking the road while they checked things out. But we happily walked the rest of the short distance back.
I was thinking, as I came down the last hill, that I would put the groceries away and wander up to the neighbours to borrow a shovel so I could finish the driveway. Then, I looked ahead. I stopped! If my backpack wasn’t strapped to my shoulders, I would have dropped it right there in disbelief. I could see someone with a shovel in our driveway.
There was my neighbour and friend just finishing the last few shovel’s full of snow. She insisted it was a gift, a Valentine’s Day gift 💝! I was almost overwhelmed with gratitude, mixed with complete wonder. What a special and thoughtful gift! Talk about spoilt! That would be us!
