Thankful {Day 15}

Next door there is this huge tree that is between our lawn and our neighbors. This tree gives us shade from the hot evening sun in the summer, beautiful color in the fall and dumps all these leaves in our yard in the winter. It's a big tree, we could probably rake every day and fill up a bag of leaves. I have to admit I get slightly annoyed at the number of leaves it dumps in our yard. Not sure how to justify getting annoyed at a tree...
The other day, after we had a really windy day the lawn was covered, you couldn't even see the grass! On top of it, it was wet from a little rain the day before...gross.
We got home from a long day at church, pulled into the driveway and *poof* leaves are gone! Our wonderful neighbors not only raked their leaves they did our lawn too! How wonderful is that?!

I'm thankful for kind neighbors!


  1. That is so sweet! It reminds me of this little bit of sweetness from Kelly's kiddos last fall:
