Does the snow have you down? Are you tired of shoveling it in the bitterly cold until your face is beet red and your fingers are sufficiently numb?
Try doing it while advanced in age and getting around with a walker. Suddenly, your situation doesn’t seem so bad, does it? You could probably get by with a little help from a friend, huh?
Tommy Adams, a Nottoway High School senior, was driving home with his mom when he noticed an elderly man — yep, with a walker — attempting to clear snow from his driveway. This Good Samaritan young man asked his mother to stop the car so he could get out and finish the job for the old man.
“He was relieved; he looked tired,” Tommy told WTVR CBS 6 News. “I told him to get back into his car because it was cold. Other people who saw him in the snow should have had the decency to stop.”
Yes, Tommy, we could all learn a lesson from your gracious act.
Love your neighbor.
