Momof3, how wonderful. Its those acts of kindness that truly depicts what kind of person you are. U get no reward here on earth except for the pleasure of seeing a smile of that womans face. My grandparents too have passed away and lived in Cooper and since I didn't get over there as often as I should, the little man next to them (who was in better health) would always take care of her yard and whenever we offered to pay him, he would not accept, he said very simply that is what neighbors do.
It's nice to know that there are still considerate and thoughtful people in the world, sometimes all the bad can be deceiving and discouraging.
Kudos to you and a Karma bump!
