Our neighbor, a divorced woman who's children are all married and moved out of the house, was in a bad accident. She was hit head-on on her way to work at 6:30 am on New Years Eve. She is not fully recovered and still undergoing therapy. My wife and I are helping her out with her yard work. We volunteered and were not asked. My wife and I already take care of our own two 3 acre lawns etc, and now her 3+ acre lawn/woods. My wife cuts the grass and trimmed all her trees. I dug out 9 tree stumps with my backhoe and sprayed the weeds growing in her gravel driveway. The mowing has slowed due to the drought we have going on. So that helps a bit. She is so thankful and keeps saying she'll never be able to repay us. We tell her not to worry, her appreciation is enough for us. It feels good to help one who is in need. Besides.......... she gave us some wine and strawberry/ruhbarb cake!
