The Kindness of Neighbors

newspaper3In my apartment complex, there is an elderly woman who lives on the first floor. This woman has an oxygen tank and it’s difficult for her to get around. She had made several signs in the main hallway asking people to stop stealing her newspaper (it was clearly labeled on the plastic).

I thought it would be nice to bring this lady’s newspaper to her, minimizing the chances of it getting stolen and saving her a trip outside. Every day, for two weeks, I left her newspaper in front of her door and prayed she didn’t open it when I dropped it off.

To this day, my neighbor has no idea it was me leaving the newspaper at her door!
