Call Now!

Sometimes? It's a good thing to make another person cry.

Good Neighbor Nancy is, as her soubriquet explains, a Good Neighbor and a Good Friend. She babysits my dogs, she watches out for and feeds my chickens and bunnies as needed. She move turtles across the road. She is a kind woman, a good mom and aunt and grandmother, and a better sister than her sister deserves.

She is on disability because of a back injury, and is in almost constant pain. I cannot remember how many operations she has had just since I've known her.

She does a lot for others, but few do for her.

So, yesterday, Sweetie and I gave her a Tracfone so she can be safer while driving, and at home.

I gave her the green Cat Bhordi socks first, with a fancy keychain stuffed into one, and a Tracfone minutes card in the other. Then, we gave her the phone. Her very first cell phone.

And she cried.

I've had one of those 'no contract' phones for many years.. they're definitely worth their weight in gold.
Also, *hugs*.. you know why.

Just please make sure she knows how to use it :-)

After I realized that the spousal unit was not answering my calls, I realized he had never turned in on...! He figured it was automatic.

Oh, what a wonderful and perfectly thoughtful gift! You're right, sometimes those tears are a sign of a Good Thing.

Hi Fuzzarelly,

I'm in Boston. But you can give me a call via Lady Euphoria.

Love this post. Nothing warms the heart like tears of joy.

Hugs, Euphoria

sounds like you're a good neighbor, too ;-)

(heh--my verification word is "cationi". Say it with an Italian accent, and I think I have a new "pet name" for my kitty now LOL)
