Was just sitting here thinking about all the good people in our lives. We have family who always supports us - and we lean a bit heavily on them physically and mentally. Then all the friends and neighbors. It's not about building me a fence or something like that- it's about "being there" in a way we know.
We had a Co2 scare a year ago from an improperly installed device. At 8pm our detector went off and I grabbed my man and the cat. It was very cold and we were standing on the front step kind of shocky. Our neighbor just happened to be taking her dogs for a walk. Her husband (volunteer FF) was away but she called a FF she knew was on call just a few doors away. He took care of things in such a kind manner. Arrived without lights on - I had asked that, so no one would be upset - he said really is to use lights but under the circumstances would write it up - no lights! It's stuff like this I really appreciate.
Also, our ISP- they provide cable, phone and digital TV. Once they knew our situation, the lead tech gave me his cell # and said phone him day or night- I'd try never to call at night but it was so "over the top service".
Then all the friends I've met on my blog - great people.
Enough - you all probably have similar stories. I really believe 99% of people are wonderful and caring because I see it daily.
