Unexpected Act of Kindness {SOL Day #4: 3-04-15}

Like many places in the midwest and northeastern United States, yesterday was a day of horrible weather.  What started as snow falling in the most ginormous flakes I have ever seen, turned to sleet and rain as the day wore on.  When it was all over with, we had about five inches of heavy, wet snow covering our driveway.

I was not happy.

My husband is out of town for his annual snowmobile trip and our tractor with the plow is broken. Our driveway is about 300 feet long, making shoveling it a daunting task.  My plan was to wait until the snow melted instead of shoveling. (Surely spring would arrive some time soon, right?) Before leaving for his trip, my husband tried to reassure me that him leaving during the first week of March was a safe bet that there would not be any snow.

He was wrong.

I had to head out for a doctor appointment in the afternoon.  All of the precipitation had stopped and since I have 4WD, getting out was not a problem for me.

When I arrived at my appointment, I checked my phone and saw this text from my daughter's boyfriend:
He was offering to shovel for me???  WOW!

When I arrived home from my appointment a few hours later, not only was my sidewalk shoveled, but the entire driveway as well.  Knowing that my husband was out of town, his dad even stopped by to help him.  

All I can say is...WOW!  (And my husband owes them BIG TIME! :)


  1. I loved hearing this, Jennifer, lucky you, lucky daughter to have such a thoughtful boyfriend. When my daughter was dating her "now" husband, he did quite a few nice things for us. I always said it was because he loved my daughter! Hm-m!

  2. Yes, Zach is a keeper in deed - such a sweet thing to do!

  3. Wow! That is an incredible young guy right there! Not something you see often. I'm so glad you were touched by this kind act. Thanks sharing such a wonderful slice.
