We’re well into the 4th hour of the drama of the semi truck hanging over the edge of our steep, windy road. Two tow trucks and a gaggle of workers all trying to keep it from falling into the creek below.
Amazingly, everyone is being jolly. So much so, they all deserved some cookies and milk. In a break from my many trips up and down our hilly road, I threw together a batch of oatmeal cookies to reward them for their good tempers. Life is full of nice people. Even when they are totally stressed out (Remember stress is never a reason for behaving badly!).
A neighbor, a fellow in his 80’s, was just one of the people to joined us for the unfolding show. He apologized for being nosy. Not at all! I felt 100% cool with all the neighbors coming to watch. After all, we’ve all had dozens of winter nights huddled inside, but never an evening hanging out with neighbors in the midst of a tow truck drama extravaganza!
Smile. Be happy.
