Okay guys, so it really feels like winter now. I haven't seen snow like that since I can remember. We tried to shovel a couple times on Saturday to keep up with things but with the wind we eventually said "screw it" and went inside for some hot chocolate. Sunday morning as we thought we would try and go to Unity service but quickly changed our mind due to the 3 foot drift over our entire driveway. We bundled up and started working. We had to shovel in layers since it was so deep. We would get a few few of driveway uncovered than have to rest. More hot chocolate than back out again. We are stubborn Minnesotans and refuse to buy a snow blower (kicking myself for that stubbornness on Sunday) but anyways, we kept at it. A few hours later and a throbbing back and arms, a neighbor who lived down the street about 5 houses and who we've never met, comes over with his small bobcat kinda thing and helped us uncover the end of the driveway. As I stood back and watched him work, I felt so appreciative for the kindness of people who are willing to spend their time and energy and gas to help those in need. It made me start to think of ways in which I could help others. Pay it forward idea. I thank my neighbor and friends and family for making winter a little warmer.
May you all be blessed
