Then, I picked up the snow shovel and realized that the snow was heavy and over a foot deep. To do a path from the front door to the sidewalk took over half and hour of back bending agony! I remembered the saying of "A journey of a thousand miles begins with a single step." Lao-Tzu I knew it would take most of the day to clear my driveway.
The neighbor across the street came out and started the noisy snow blower. He did his yard, his neighbor's yard and his whole side of the street while I slowly shoveled a narrow path. Then, he crossed the street and continued on my side of the street. He did my walk and my driveway. The noise did not bother me at all!
In less than twenty minutes he had the snow removed from my driveway. All I could say was thank you to him and thank you to God for sending the good Samaritan!
