Just posted by Erin in Burlington on her neighborhood Front Porch Forum…
To the man who secretly shoveled our long steep front steps at two in the morning… I just want someway to let you know how much this means to us. I would never have known you were there if I wasn’t up throughout the night with two sick children and my infant coughing and gasping for breath as I steamed him in the bathroom that looks out over the steps.
Our life is overflowing with wonder and joy this year! But with two small kids, our three-year-old in preschool for the first time, we have been hit by cold after cold. With working and holidays, family visits, and power outages at the grandparent’s cabin requiring emergency visits… we just never got around to the steps. Our letter carrier will be happy and we are forever grateful for your not so small act of kindness and our cherished reprieve of duty!
