Friendly Appreciation

The enormity of ice storm damages is settling down on our street as the mounting debries were finally removed. The cleaning crew worked four straight days on our street.  A worker told me she worked 7 to 7, 7 days a week.  Thank goodness for their hard work, our street is beginning to look like ready for spring flowering trees whatever survived.  One local guy stopped by the huge truck claning up the debris, gave the crew a pack of beer for appreciation.  Suddenly my tired bones felt so light to witness a flower of human kindness.
