Saved from freezing

Saved from freezing

Sometimes when your eyes are closed you’ll be surprised at what can come when you least expect it. A huge winter storm blew in last night and buried the city, the temperature keeps dropping and the wind cuts thru you like ice (literally:).

Today I had to get one of my cars repaired so that was a jab at me today. I returned to work today, another jab at my heart. I am still feeling sick from the emotional strain I’ve been under. Then I get a call saying we want to show your house today and that means I have to Shovel the darn driveway. Great! My drive is completely covered in snow, the garbage can has tipped over and the snow is at least up to my knees in spots. No problem, I can do this, why not throw a bit more at me today. I get the sidewalk shoveled and my fingers are falling off from the shear cold. I stop for a moment to just cry in my driveway for anyone to see, this sucks! I mean I used to shovel when Andy was sick and even when he wasn’t but this just sucks more because I know this is my new life. Surviving each day.

Then I hear a voice.. “Ma’am, Ma’am!…I can help you after I do my driveway”…   I look over my shoulder and my neighbor who I’ve maybe talked to a couple times since living on this street is talking to me. Now for anyone that knows Andy’s and mine neighbors they know that we never liked the one side but the other side we always got along with. It was the neighbor we liked calling out to help me. I smiled and said “Thank you sooo much, that would be awesome! Oh and my husband died a few weeks ago so you have know idea how much I appreciate your help”.

God sent me an angel today in the form of a neighbor with a snow blower. I was tired, beaten, cold, and crying and I’m saved. It’s still snowing out and the driveway is quickly being covered back up but it never looked so good than it does now. He even did the back driveway and the back step.

So anyone out there that thinks God doesn’t care.. or that God has abandoned you.. maybe someday you can have a moment I had. It’s small but sometimes the little things make the biggest difference in someone’s day.
