The Kindness of Others

I confess to being something of a cynic; I've seen far too many examples of how humanity is going down the drain. But then a young fellow—and fellow hobbyist—offered his assistance to help me with my home, no strings attached. It took me almost two years to accept his offer, as I've grown far too suspicious of people.

But soon after doing so, I came to learn that his offer was genuine. I ask forgiveness for my suspicions, having been hurt more times than I can count by (not all necessarily "evil") people who had their own agendas. And, he's brought along others who, like him, offered their help for the sake of being helpful to like-minded individuals in need.

I also extend my gratitude to a neighbor, who brought my wood stove to the house.

Then there are the GoFundMe contributors, some of whom are total strangers given to giving. I cannot thank these people enough—I intend to mount a plaque on the wall of my home when it's done thanking them all individually.
