The door prize

It was dark. The doorbell rang, a hard knock. We looked at each other wonderingly a moment–did you have someone coming over? No, as I got up to answer just in time to see a dark minivan making its escape.

Tonight is when the teenagers have a meeting at church (and my apologies to the perpetrators for not getting the whole thing in in my attempt at an Iphone shot while not stepping on the daffodils.) Come to think of it, I made a pair of chocolate tortes for them two weeks ago, and I’m guessing that had something to do with this. I had forgotten all about it.

I think someone loves us.

And our teenagers stopped by to see what they could do for us. Some vacuumed the living room rugs; one young man watered plants; others scrubbed out the kitchen sink. Work is love made visible.

Isn’t that wonderful?! I’d never heard of such a thing! One Christmas my daughter and a friend made dog biscuits with cookie cutter Christmas shapes and delivered small parcels to all the dogs in the neighborhood. I think their owners may have been as surprised by the unexpected knock on the door as you were by being Hearted!

They get extra credit points for not quite getting caught either. It was a good job all around.

How sweet, just when you think things are going down hill, you read of something good, Random Acts of Kindness, hopefully it will spread.
