You know I’ve mentioned before that I’m the Care Coordinator for my neighborhood, right? Well, this past week one of my sweet neighbors had a death in the family, so it’s my job to make sure they have some meals, a card, flowers, etc.
This particular neighbor didn’t really want lots of meals throughout this week because there are just 2 of them, so I came up with the idea to have neighbors make frozen casseroles, lasagna, etc and drop them off to me to take over all at once today. This way they’ll have meals for when they need them, but don’t have a barrage of people coming every day either.
The upside of this role for me has been seeing some neighbors who I haven’t had the pleasure of meeting before.
Night before last, a neighbor I’d never met came by to drop off some food, and we got to have a really nice visit. The Hubs had been out in the yard doing work and had just come in and showered off. He threw on some wear-around-the-house kind of clothes and came downstairs just about the time I was meeting this neighbor. Of course he said “hello” and introduced himself and then he went about his business while I chatted with my neighbor.
Later when he and I sat down to eat (after our kids were in bed and the neighbor was gone,) I looked across the table and noticed he had thrown on a tshirt that he got for free at a work conference. It was a security software tshirt, and emblazoned across the front was this….
WOW. Nice to meet you Barbara. Hope you like “fast and easy” too…or at least aren’t offended after meeting us now!
Keepin’ it classy ya’ll. Keepin’ it classy.
