I Am My Neighbor’s Keeper

Standard

For the first time in six days, tears rolled down my cheeks not from the pain from my back procedure but from a selfless act of kindness. My neighbor Monica noticed me carrying a bag earlier in the day and brought it inside for me then she asked how i’d been healing. I told her sleeping through the night or for more than four hours has been impossible bc I need ice packs to soothe my nerves. Three hours later she asked me to meet her at my front door. This device was in her hand. It will allow me to sleep through the night with constant cool and return to work. My suffering is eased because someone cared enough to see the obstacle in my way and moved it. #blessed #backpain #chronicillness #randomactsofkindness
